Zero crossing detector

Zero crossing detector
In many circuits that operate in synchrony with the mains, synchronization normally takes place during the zero crossing of the mains voltage. An auxiliary circuit as shown in the diagram is then required to detect the zero crossing. This pulls the output briefly to earth at the instant the mains voltage becomes positive after passing through the zero crossing.
