VOT8024AM and VOT8121AM Optocouplers
Vishay's 800 V off-state voltage delivers high robustness and noise isolation
Vishay broadens its optoelectronics portfolio with the release of two optocouplers with a phototriac output in the compact flat SOP-4 package. Featuring high off-state voltage of 800 V and dv/dt of 1000 V/μs, the Vishay Semiconductors VOT8024AM and VOT8121AM deliver high robustness and noise isolation for home appliances and industrial equipment.
These optocouplers isolate low voltage logic from 120 VAC, 240 VAC, and 380 VAC lines to control resistive, inductive, or capacitive loads, including motors, solenoids, high current thyristors, or TRIACs and relays.
Reducing design costs and saving board space, the devices consist of a GaAs infrared LED optically coupled to a zero crossing TRIAC (VOT8024AM) for EMI reduction without the need for external snubber networks, or a random-phase TRIAC (VOT8121AM) to enable phase-independent switching.
They have low trigger currents, which facilitate an easy interface with digital logic, and high off-state voltage enhances safety margins in one-phase applications, while still maintaining enough voltage headroom for three-phase applications. They also have a high withstanding isolation voltage, which provides additional safety.
