Definition of Load Resistor

Before we get into the details of this subject we need to discuss the definition of the term load resistor. The term "load resistor" actually refers to an umbrella term that refers to resistance and load. It is a reference to electronic components that are connected to both sides of the supply circuit. The primary purpose of the circuit is to transform electrical energy into another energy. It is able to perform energy conversion. Load resistors are one of the resistances. As an example, the resistance of a lamp in the circuit for lighting is called the load resistor. According to a broad definition, it is an element that is placed on an electrical supply. It is defined in a strict sense the term "electronic load" refers to the variable (or comparable) resistor.

Why do We Need to Install a Load Resistor?

Every LED bulb in the turn signal circuit requires an external load resistor. When the load resistor has not been installed then the bulb could have an issue with over-flashing. Super flash is the result of constant flashing in the light of LED. Super flash can cause the bulb to go out rapidly due to this flash. Therefore, we should install a load resistor in a signal indicator (turn sign). Each LED bulb must connect in parallel to it.
