Comparator detects failed telecomm supplies

Posted on Feb 7, 2013

You often need to know when a telecomm power supply`s output drops below its nominal value. The dropout generally indicates a failure and may dictate replacement of the supply or some other form of system maintenance. The circuit in Figure 1 uses an isolated comparator to monitor two 48V telecomm supplies (of either polarity).
