Generally the TriAC is wired after the load . the sequence is Live, on/off switch, Load (bulb/fan), TriAC with its controlling circuit , then return to Neutral.With this, the fear of TriAC blowing will never arise, perhaps.Hi all!
I'm using BT136 triac.
For the output of the triac I use two wires to the AC bulb (One is from T1 & other from L wire).
My problem is
By mistake if I short the two wires will it blow up the triac? If so any precautions to make it safe against short circuitry.
As bulbs fail they generally go S/C, either with the filament shorting the contacts out, or by an arc across the contacts - it's a VERY common occurance.Thank you guys for comments then I'll use a high rate triac if it possible I'll use a fuse too.
Nigel can you tell me how is this happens?Code:
when a bulb goes it takes a TRIAC out, most of the time!
