Inductive spiking and how a diode can save your circuits [Video]
posted September 22 2011 20:27.14 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Get any circuit with an inductive load such as a solenoid or a relay, and you will probably notice that the designer has put a diode across the coil... You may have heard this diode as a reverse-bias diode, or flyback diode, or freewheeling diode or differnt. But what this diode does? And why is this diode essential for inductive loads? Watch the following theory video from Afrotech to learn why.
