Vishay has housed its latest high-voltage isolation optocouplers in surface-mount packages for solar and wind turbine installations.
Dubbed the CNY64ST and CNY65ST series, these devices are VDE certified for CAT IV installations with transient overvoltage protection of 12,000 V and recurring peak voltage of 1,450 VPEAK. In addition to meeting the IEC requirements for overvoltage transients and recurring peak voltage, both series feature creepage distances of up to 17 mm and are certified to be used in CAT IV installations with working voltages up to 1,000 V.
The CNY64ST series offers a creepage distance of 9.5 mm while the CNY65ST series provides a creepage distance of 14 mm with CAT IV working voltages up to 600 V. Both feature an insulation distance greater than 3 mm. The CAT IV optocouplers provide a broad range of CTR values from 50 % to 300 % at 5 mA, operate over a temperature range of - 55 °C to + 85 °C, and offer a forward current of 75 mA.
The devices are Eco-Friendly "Green," compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC, and in accordance to WEEE 2002/96/EC.
Pricing: For U.S. delivery only in 1,000-piece-quantities is $1.70 per piece for the CNY64ST and $1.90 per piece for the CNY65ST series.
Availability: Samples and production quantities of the CNY64ST and CNY65ST series products are available now, with lead times of six to eight weeks for larger orders.
