Beverly, Mass. Clare, Inc. an IXYS company, has announced the production release of the LCB716, a 1-Form-B solid-state relay (SSR), and the dual-pole combination LBA716, which integrates independent 1-Form-A and 1-Form-B relays into a single package. Both are 60-V devices with 0.5- and 1.0-A of load current, respectively.
These devices use optically coupled relay technology to provide an enhanced 3750 Vrms isolation barrier between the input and the output of the relays. The efficient MOSFET switches use Clare's patented OptoMOS architecture and the optically coupled output is controlled by highly efficient GaAlAs infrared LEDs.
The 60-V LCB716 and LBA716 relays are in addition to the previously released LCA710 and LCA715 (60 V, 1.0 and 1.8A load current) 1-Form-A devices.
This family of 60-V SSRs are said to offer the highest load current capability in 6- and 8-pin surface-mount and DIP packaging and very low on-resistances ranging from 0.25 to 2.0 ohms. These low-voltage relays specifically target high-current electronic switching applications, industrial power distribution, sensor circuitry, and medical equipment (patient/equipment isolation).
Pricing: The LBA716 is priced at $2.56 and the LCB716 is priced at $1.74, in OEM quantities of 25,000.
Availability: The LCB716 and LBA716 are in full production with a lead time of four weeks.
