5 Volt Regulator | Frequently Asked Questions


Frequently Asked Questions.


What is a 5 Volt regulator?

The 5 volt regulator's only function is to take a 12 volt input and supply a 5 volt output


What would I use a 5 volt regulator for?

The unit is used when an additional 5 volt supply or a 5 volt pull up is required. A pull up voltage is used on Hall Effect sensors to lift the signal off of the ground line so that the unit is able to "see it"

Which sensors use 5 Volts?

TPS sensors, MAP sensors and some Hall Effect sensors need a 5 volt supply.


How is the 5 Volt regulator wired?

The unit has three wires, Black/White, Blue/White and Red/White, where Black/White is the 5 volt output and the Red/White is the switched 12 volt supply.
