Car lamp failure detector

Posted on Jan 12, 2013

In Fig.1 see a DC current ? sensing switch, in which the current is applied from an 8 to 16 Volt supply. The R1 value is chosen so that it generates roughly 100 mV at the required trip current. In Fig. 2 shows how the above circuit can be made to act as a car lamp ? failure switch which turns on if any of the monitored lamps burn out. R is wired in series with the wiring harness feed to a selected ??cluster? of up to four similarly rated lamps.
