Whitepaper: Shunt Protectors Help Prevent LED Lighting Application Failures

Sponsored by: Bourns

Some LEDs are configured in series strings of 20 or more. In these configurations, one open circuit LED can cause the entire LED string to go dark, resulting in reduced performance, possible maintenance calls, and costly warranty returns. This paper presents the common threats to LED lighting systems, and provides the best design practices to implement Bourns® LSP devices as an effective circuit protection solution.
