Inrush Current Limiter Circuit

  
Q1 is an npn Darlington and Q2 is a prip Darlington. MOV1 is a metal-oxide varistor and R8 is an thermistor for limiting inrush current. This circuit limits ac line current to a load. When a predetermined interval has passed, RY1 shorts out thermistor or resistance RB. R4 can be 150 kQ if R9 is not used. If power is removed,

the circuit is ready for immediate restart.
