Shunts provide a current bypass for LEDs going into an open circuit

Providing a current bypass for LEDs going into an open circuit, ON Semiconductor HBL5006 Series LED shunts are now in stock at Mouser. LEDs are fragile when subjected to transients and surge conditions - the HBL5006 maintain high reliability for LEDs in applications such as headlights, lighthouses, bridges, aircraft, runways and more. The low cost addition of the shunt device will provide full assurance that an entire string of LEDs will not extinguish should one LED fail to open. They are also applicable to other loads where circuit continuity is required and are designed to be used with LED string currents from 50 to 350mA, says the company.
