Simple Short-Circuit Detection
This circuit is suitable in every situation where over-current protection is required. Here we give an example from the model train world.
Every seasoned model train enthusiast knows that there is nothing worse than having to find the cause of a short-circuit. On a small model railway with one locomotive it is obviously fairly easy, but on large layouts all locomotives stand still when there is a short and then you have to check each one in turn to find the culprit. If the track is divided into sections then we can use this super simple circuit to make our lives a lot easier.
