Don't try it with a bipolar. You may see secondary break down failure demonstrated. This circuit makes it darn near imposible to destroy a FET from low energy power line spikes or inductive kickback. The 45 volt zener is selected to be VDS(max) minus 15 volts. Thus, in the case of the 60 volt parts above use a zener of less that 45 volts. | |___________ | | __|___/ __|__ / / \ 15v | L | /---\ | O | | | A | _|_ | D | 45v \ / |_____| ----/ | / | ___| Drain | | | | |_______|Gate (note the FET is N-Channel in this case.) _|_ | 15v \ / | -----/ |___ Source / | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |___________| | |
