Opto 5 Click is a compact add-on board that provides uncomplicated safety isolation from the high voltage. This board features the FOD4216, a random phase snubbers Triac driver from ON Semiconductor. The FOD4216 consists of an infrared emitting diode coupled to a hybrid random phase triac formed with two inverse parallel SCRs, which creates the triac function capable of driving discrete triacs. It utilizes a high efficiency infrared emitting diode that offers an improved trigger sensitivity.
This Click board™ is suitable for applications like high voltage AC switching where there is a need to protect and electrically isolate two circuits in a switching application.
