I stood back, shook my head (Really, Physically - It is what I do to restart the learning process).Â I TOTALLY agree with you on the diode protecting the switch.
That's ONE feature of the field collapse
suppression diode. It may keep the EFIS
display from 'glitching', the ov module
from nuisance tripping, eliminate a 'click'
in the headphones . . . and yes . . . extend
the service life of a switch.
|The location of the Diode is NOT where I would put it in
the circuit IF it was ONLY for switch protection.
It's never is the only reason . . .

it is the Ground that was being switched?
Neither of these conditions matter. . .
I cannot speak to your training/experience. I can
speak to my experience and demonstrations on
the bench and in airplanes with observations
made, measurements taken, deductions proposed
and documents published with invitations
for good skeptical/critical review.
If you find fault with anything I've published
or referenced . . . that's the place to start.
Nobody is more interested in correcting faulty
information and/or clarifying an explanation
as I am.
If you have an experiment you'd like to see
conducted, give us a bill of materials, schematic,
your hypothesis for outcome and instructions
for conducting the experiment. I'll set it up on
the bench and publish the results.
