Plastic Optocouplers

Optocouplers - Plastic

As one of the leaders in galvanic isolation optocoupler technology, Avago delivers optocouplers that are designed and manufactured to meet stringent power isolation requirements of industrial applications along with the industry's leading common mode rejection (CMR) of up to 40kV/µs.

In an industrial environment where high voltages, magnetic fields and noise are commonly present, reliability is critical to avoid downtime and ensure data accuracy. In this environment circuit designers use galvanic isolation optocouplers to insulate high voltages and isolate unwanted signals.

Avago’s galvanic optocoupler solutions comply with worldwide regulatory standards, including IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), UL (Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.), CSA (Canadian Standard Association) and the EU (European Union) approvals.

Avago analog signal isolation  optocouplers provide high voltage protection and noise isolation. In addition, many of the Avago analog signal isolation optocouplers are highly integrated with additional protection features that help minimize the number of discrete components in circuit design and reduce overall system costs.

Galvanic isolation optocoupler technology is used in power supply and motor control circuits, data communications and digital logic interface circuits. Avago galvanic isolation optocouplers include the automotive-grade and high temperature R2Coupler(TM), drivers for intelligent power modules, smart current sensors, intelligent gate drivers and other application specific devices.

IEC 60747-5-5 Certified
