## What is the range of IC 317 at the stable voltage regulator?

1.2 V to 37 V
The LM317 is an adjustable 3âˆ’terminal positive voltage regulator capable of supplying in excess of 1.5 A over an output voltage range of 1.2 V to 37 V. This voltage regulator is exceptionally easy to use and requires only two external resistors to set the output voltage.

What is IC 317?

The LM317T is an adjustable 3-terminal positive voltage regulator capable of supplying different DC voltage outputs other than the fixed voltage power supply of +5 or +12 volts, or as a variable output voltage from a few volts up to some maximum value all with currents of about 1.5 amperes.

What are the function of component used in circuit diagram of LM317?

The main function of the LM317 IC is to maintain the constant and stable voltage at the output. It is used for linear regulation. its load and line regulation are better as compared to other fixed regulators.

### Why is LM317 called adjustable?

Compared to 78xx/79xx The LM317 is an adjustable analogue to the popular 78xx fixed regulators. Like the LM317, each of the 78xx regulators is designed to adjust the output voltage until it is some fixed voltage above the adjustment pin (which in this case is labelled “ground”).

Is an example for positive adjustable voltage regulator?

LM317 is a classic example of positive adjustable voltage regulator, whose output voltage can be varied over a range of 1.2 volts to 57 volts.

How do you check a voltage regulator?

Follow these steps to test your voltage regulator:

1. Step 1: Set The Multimeter To Voltage. Ensure your multimeter is on the voltage setting.
2. Step 2: Connect The Multimeter To Your Battery.
3. Step 3: Check The Multimeter.
4. Step 4: Turn Your Vehicle On.
5. Step 5: Rev The Engine.
6. Step 6: Check The Multimeter Again.

## What is difference between fixed voltage regulator and adjustable voltage regulator?

Adjustable Voltage regulators require a very few external components to achieve its operation. Fixed voltage regulators require almost no external components (may be a couple of bypass capacitors). At low cost you have a wide range of voltage and current selection.
