Fault Protection & Detection Switches and Multiplexers

The Fault Protection & Detection Switches and Multiplexers provide overvoltage protection of up to ±60 V for system inputs and outputs, signal chain inputs and outputs and within signal chains where an overvoltage condition may occur. Overvoltage conditions can occur due to power supply sequencing issues, voltage spikes and incorrect user configurations. The Fault Protection & Detection Switches and Multiplexers protect themselves as well as other components in the chain against these overvoltages. The Fault Protection devices will be off when no power supply is present. The Fault Protection & Detection Switches and Multiplexers are capable of fault detection and reporting for use in system diagnostics, where knowing the state of the system is important.
