Applications with Voltage Regulator L200


Here they exist two regulator circuits, that use the IC L200, as regulator of voltage and current, the company SGS-Thomson, which give these circuits. In circuit Fig.1, we can regulate the output voltage, with the RV1, while in the Fig.2, we can regulate also output voltage – current, with the TR2 and TR1, respectively. More information on characteristics for L200, you can see in list datasheets. Shortly will be added also certain other useful circuits with L200.
