Racing Applied to HBLED/Lighting
High brightness light emitting diodes (HBLEDs) offer high visibility, color control, long life, low power consumption, and low maintenance requirements. These qualities make them increasingly popular for many automotive and other consumer applications, including automotive displays, external warning lights, traffic signals, roadway illumination, display boards, and residential lighting.
But LEDs are sensitive electronic devices that can be damaged by overvoltage and overcurrent transients caused by system switching, electrostatic discharge and nearby lightning strikes. In addition, the switch-mode power supplies used with LEDs do not provide the transient protection of the inductive ballasts they replace in lighting applications.
As the world's #1 brand in circuit protection, Littelfuse offers the broadest and deepest circuit protection portfolio and a global network of technical experts backed by more than 80 years of application design experience.
