High Voltage Activated

Some articles on voltage, voltages, high voltage:

Voltage Droop
... Voltage droop is the intentional loss in output voltage from a device as it drives a load ... Employing droop in a voltage regulation circuit increases the headroom for load transients ... needs to be chosen so that at maximum output current, the output voltage at the load is the minimum acceptable ...
Typical Voltages
... A common voltage for flashlight batteries is 1.5 volts (DC) ... A common voltage for automobile batteries is 12 volts (DC) ... Common voltages supplied by power companies to consumers are 110 to 120 volts (AC) and 220 to 240 volts (AC) ...
Field Emission Display - Operation
... cathode ray tube (CRT) with an electron gun that uses high voltage (10 kV) to accelerate electrons which in turn excite the phosphors, but instead of a single electron gun, a FED display contains a grid of ... A high voltage-gradient field is created between the emitters and a metal mesh suspended above them, pulling electrons off the tips of the emitters ... This is a highly non-linear process and small changes in voltage will quickly cause the number of emitted electrons to saturate ...
Voltage-dependent Calcium Channel - Channel Subunits - α1 Subunit
... The α1 subunit forms the Ca2+ selective pore, which contains voltage-sensing machinery and the drug/toxin-binding sites ... subunits that have been identified in humans Type Voltage α1 subunit (gene name) Associated subunits Most often found in L-type calcium channel ("Long-Lasting" AKA "DHP Receptor") HVA (h ... calcium channel ("Residual") intermediate-voltage-activated Cav2.3 (CACNA1E) α2δ, β, possibly γ Cerebellar granule cells, other neurons T-type calcium channel ("Transient") low-voltage-activ ...
Transient-voltage-suppression Diode
... A transient-voltage-suppression (TVS) diode is an electronic component used to protect sensitive electronics from voltage spikes induced on connected wires ... The device operates by shunting excess current when the induced voltage exceeds the avalanche breakdown potential ... is a clamping device, suppressing all overvoltages above its breakdown voltage ...

Famous quotes containing the word high:

    He was high and mighty. But the kindest creature to his slaves—and the unfortunate results of his bad ways were not sold, had not to jump over ice blocks. They were kept in full view and provided for handsomely in his will. His wife and daughters in the might of their purity and innocence are supposed never to dream of what is as plain before their eyes as the sunlight, and they play their parts of unsuspecting angels to the letter.
