High Voltage Regulator
The LR12 made by Supertex Inc. is a good choice for applications where a supply voltage of more than 35 to 40 V needs to be stabilised. This small regulator can cope with input voltages of up to 100 V, when the output voltage can be adjusted between 1.2 and 88 V. A small disadvantage is that the input voltage needs to be at least 12 V more than the output voltage.
