An arrangement for the protection of a transistor, particularly a MOS-switching transistor including a zener diode connected between the gate and source terminals for limiting the gate potential and a switch-off transistor connected to the control circuit of the MOS-transistor for grounding the gate thereof and switching it off. First and second monitoring circuits are coupled between the MOS-transistor and the switch-off transistor for producing a signal switching on the switch-off transistor in response to a drop in the load current and an increase in the output voltage of the MOS-transistor. First and second timing circuits block the signals of the monitoring circuits for predetermined intervals.
