Description

L7818CV 18V TO-220 Package Positive Voltage Regulator
L7818CP 18V ISOWATT220 Package Positive Voltage Regulator
L7818CT 18V TO-3 Package Positive Voltage Regulator

– OUTPUT CURRENT UP TO 1.5A
– OUTPUT VOLTAGES OF 18V
– THERMAL OVERLOAD PROTECTION
– SHORT CIRCUIT PROTECTION
– OUTPUT TRANSISTOR SOA PROTECTION

The L7818C series of three-terminal positive regulator is available in TO-220, ISOWATT220 and TO-3 packages and with fixed output voltage making it useful in a wide range of applications.
These regulators can provide local on-card regulation, eliminating the distribution problems associated with single point regulation. Each type employs internal current limiting, thermal shut-down and safe area protection, making it essentially indestructible.
If adequate heat sinking is provided, they can deliver over 1A output current. Although designed primarily as fixed voltage regulators, these devices can be used with external components to obtain adjustable voltages and currents.
