I am making a totem pole digital output of 1.5-23v. i was searching for a protection circuit for the output short to ground and +24v dc. please help me out by sending a diagram of the circuit if possible.
rohitsay89 said:this is the circuit with which i am working please replace the resistors
R2 with 470ohm
R3 with 120ohm
R4 with 220ohm
also the supply voltage is +24v and gnd.

An output short protection circuit is an electronic circuit that is designed to protect a device from damage caused by a short circuit in the output. It is typically used in power supplies and amplifiers to prevent damage to the device and ensure safe operation.
An output short protection circuit works by monitoring the output voltage and current of a device. If a short circuit is detected, the circuit will immediately shut off the power to the output, preventing any damage to the device. Some circuits may also include a fuse or a current-limiting device to further protect the device.
An output short protection circuit is important because it helps to prevent damage to a device and ensures safe operation. Without this circuit, a short circuit in the output could potentially damage the device and even cause a fire hazard.
There are several common types of output short protection circuits, including current-limiting circuits, overcurrent protection circuits, and fuse-based protection circuits. The specific type used will depend on the device and its application.
Technically, an output short protection circuit can be bypassed, but it is not recommended. Doing so can put the device at risk of damage and may also pose a safety hazard. It is best to always use the circuit as intended to ensure safe operation of the device.
