SCR Crowbar

The LTC1696 is a standalone power supply overvoltage monitor and protection device designed to protect a power supply load in the event of an overvoltage fault. It monitors two adjustable output voltages. If an overvoltage condition is detected, the output drives either an external SCR crowbar or turns off external back-to-back N-channel MOSFETs, thereby, disconnecting the input voltage from the power supply.
