Designed to replace discrete solutions and to drive high-power
The FDA217 driver output is controlled by means of an efficient infrared LED at the input. The PV array is capable of generating a floating power source with voltage and current sufficient to drive high-power MOSFET transistors. The device can achieve a 27uA short circuit current with a higher input LED current of 30mA. The independent outputs can be connected in parallel to deliver a short circuit current of 18.2uA with a forward LED current of 10mA. Alternatively, the outputs can be stacked in series to deliver an open circuit voltage greater then 24.4V.
Each PV array contains an integrated turn-off circuit that discharges the external MOSFET gate when LED current is removed. This eliminates the need to use external components to facilitate the discharge. The optically coupled technology provides 3750Vrms of input to output isolation.
The FDA217 is well suited for use in solid state relay designs, in controlling electrical power and loads to reduce energy waste and in other isolated switching applications. It is ideal for use with the
The device is certified to EN/IEC 60950 by TUV.
