    Dear Experts,

    There was a Ferrite bead on the 12 VDC supplly of the PCB. The bead got damaged.
    We faced problems and we removed the beads and shorted. Now the system is working fine.

    But i am afraid what will happen to the board. as of now it is working fine.

    Can anyone tell me what will be the impact of this.

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    A ferrite bead is a small inductor. Often used to filter something. It probable is there to improve regulation. If the power supply works OK, then it is probably fine the way it is. Ferrite beads are cheap, replace it if it is convenient.
