In order to protect the driver from harsh or undesired environmental conditions, EMCL can monitorize and manage the embedded sensors and protections, keeping the system in the safest operation mode whenever an environmental abnormality is detected. In addition to the embedded protections, an external shunt can be deployed to aid the driver to dissipate the excess of energy received during application processing.
