L78L05 Positive voltage regulator employ internal current limiting and thermal shutdown, making them essentially indestructible. If adequate heat-sink is provided, they can deliver up to 100 mA output current. (John recommends leaving the legs long to help with cooling.) They are intended as fixed voltage regulators in a wide range of applications including local or on- card regulation for elimination of noise and distribution problems associated with single-point regulation. In addition, they can be used with power pass elements to make high-current voltage regulators. The L78L series used as Zener diode/resistor combination replacement, offers e improvement along with lower quiescent current and lower noise.
Output current up to 100 mA Output voltage of 5 V T
