I have below design and want to know it is correct or need to change anything. Details are as below Input voltage is from 18V to 40V and can draw only 2mA current from source voltage. so I have current limiter using PNP. But ratings of coil are 8.4V, 10.5mA. Can attached circuit will work? Please advise, let me know your comments Thank you.
The circuit looks good with two recommended additions: First, you probably need a diode across your relay coil. Otherwise, the voltage on the Q6 drain-to-source will exceed its 50-volt rating when Q6 is turned off, and Q6 will break down and have to absorb the coil energy. I would also place a diode across the collector to emitter of Q3. If you don't, and your power supply is suddenly shut down to ground, you will have a potential reverse voltage of 40 volts across Q3 collector-to-emitter from the charge on the 47-uf capacitor. Both diodes are reverse-biased in normal operation, so choose the reverse voltage rating accordingly. Good luck!
