What would you recommend then, using longer switching times? 1 period on 50Hz is 20ms long, for example: For 25% power optocoupler input high for 100ms, low for 300ms (5 periods on) For 50% power optocoupler input high for 200ms, low for 200ms (10 periods on) For 75% power optocoupler input high for 300ms, low for 100ms (15 (...)
hello dear forum, in the datasheet of TLP250 it says "not recommended for new design " what can I use instead for my project ? 2) can I make a simple diode - cap bootstrap circuit to eliminate the need for another isolated supply for high side drive with this optocoupler ?
Hai, I am designing a BLDC motor driver by using TLP250 using STM32f402 micro-controller. Now i have been stuck with optocoupler output,after reading hall sensor output i have triggered one high level mosfet and one low level mosfet. But when i read gate voltage there is no such gate trigg
I need to design a optocoupler circuit as shown in the attached datasheet of IL300 optocoupler IC. I designed the circuit as shown in the first page of pdf. I used OPAMP OP-07. I did'nt used the output OPAMP in the circuit. I applied a sine wave of few hundred hertz at the input. It gets reflected at the (...)
Hello, I'm trying to design light dimmer for driving the LED bulbs. Initially design was based on standard triac circuit with optocoupler. Unfortunately that solution wasn't especially good for driving low power LED bulbs at small PWM values. I have searched internet and I found how to make alternative circuit with galvanic isolation (...)
When I put in more than 1 opamp the power pins are connected and in most cases that is fine. In my current circuit I am implementing a linear optocoupler (HCNR200) to isolate HV from LV circuits and I want the opamps on different supplies. I cant find a way to disconnect the power pins. It is not critical as I am able to disregard the (...)
Hi, I'm trying to send data from one arduino to another arduino via optocoupler. my sending speed is 9600bit/sec. i'm using 4n35 optocoupler, one arduino mega and one arduino uno. Can anyone help me ?
I have an optocoupler board as shown in figure . Though the circuit is working fine in simulation. I actual hardware theres is some wiring error which unable to debug. I am finding that the output is having pulses of peak 7.5V instead of 15V. When no pulses are given to the board, the ouput is 7.5V. What could be the reason. Thanking you. [url=
Thanks FvM and betwixt for the reply. I would like to know if there is any way to control the dead time using the given circuit as its already on a PCB. Specilfically what resistances have effect on the dead band. I am also attaching my controller outputs. and output of optocoupler
The Topswitch-jx range of flyback controllers are the best in the world. Why do they not boast about their unique superb output short circuit protection feature? In a topswitch-jx, the actual operating current to supply the topswitch actually comes from the feedback optocoupler. This unique feature means that if the output gets short (...)
You are correct about your concern, the LED in the optocouplers does degrade over time. Since a Triac, once that it latches, does not require additional triggering...................Something that you could do, is not to have the optocoupler on continuously, but pulsed. In a 50 Hz powerline, each semicycle lasts 10 msecs. In an inductive load the
Hello guys i managed to make a firing circuit see the image attached. the result waveforms are also attached, color green is the trigerring pulse. My question is why i get the timestep too small when i insert the moc3041 which is the optocoupler used to propagate the signal to the gate of the scr. Any ideas about this one. ( circuit (...)
If you want faster edges than 400 ns, you must not drive the PMOS transistor gate from a optocoupler with open collector output. Instead use either a fast BJT circuit or better a fast CMOS logic gate. - - - Updated - - - You didn't tell what the final output load is, but the main problem is the large PMOS ca
This is a very simple dimmer with a triac output (phase control). It uses timer0 to do the timing. The code is written in mikroPascal. The control part (here a P12F629) is competely isolated from the 230V mains supply: - the zero crossing detector contains an optocoupler (4N25 or similar), - the drive of the triac also conta
Hi all, I not sure where to post this. so don't hesitate to suggest a different section for this post. I am designing an automatic control for the roller shutters in my house. Each shutter has a switch that can send the 230v phase on either of two lines. I'd like to send each of this two lines with a logic circuit and/or muController (raspberry
As I said I am not getting expected results as in the figure. So you want us to guess about your unexpected results instead of telling your observations? A few guesses are free, however. I expect circuit #1 to self-trigger without optocoupler input due to dV/dt or leakage current. There should be base-emitter resistors (e.g. 1
thank you for your reply....can u please provide me a link for refernce design?? simply this circuit will help you. You will take zero cross detection point and fire the optocoupler depends on duty cycle.
How (in which circuit) are you using 4N35 as a gate driver, it isn't but a basic optocoupler?
optocoupler is not at all necessary. The standard way to do this is to set the AVR to pull up the pins connected to the micro-switches, and have the micro-switches complete the circuit to ground when closed (assuming they are normally open). It might be worth adding a capacitor (perhaps 10uF) between the AVR pins and ground to denounce them.
Has it already been mentioned that the IGBT driver must provide isolation between the control voltage and the gate circuit? It's a very slow control signal related to usual IGBT application, so anything e.g. a slow optocoupler could be used to isolate the control signal. But you also need an isolated power supply for the gate driver. Can be a sm
Greetings, Does this circuit work well? Application : to control speed of ceiling Fan or to control brightness of a Light bulb. Components : MOC3021 (optocoupler), BTA12 600 (TRIAC) 110117 Thank you !
Hello All, I am trying to drive triac with Positive Power supply. With positive power supply it should be possible to drive triac in Q1 and Q4. Here is the circuit I am using. But triac is not triggering. I have checked in oscilloscope the signal on gate looks good enough. 110099 I really need your expert
optocoupler solution from EDN:
Hello, I have a circuit and I am trying to find its problem. I have square pulses at the tlp250 input (pin3, 5 V peak-to-peak) but I have no output at all (pins 6 and 7 of TLP250). There are six TLP250 to drive the BSM10GN60 IGBT module. Three of them has their Vcc connected together but the other three Vcc are not connected together and are sep
Hi, here is no mention of it in the datasheet. Look at the section "Absolute maximum rating". I bet it is mentioned. To the circuit. It would be helpful to show us... Is the second line of the AC connected to your expander device gnd? You are aware of the risk of electrical shock? I reccomend to use an optocoupler to get galvani
I recently saw a circuit using an optocoupler with a common ground. Is there any reason you would want to use an optocoupler this way? To me the circuit the circuit looked pointless, same functionality could be achieved using a single transistor. Am I missing something here?

There are 5 possibilities in voltage level. 1.5V DC 2.240V DC 3.230V AC 4.12V DC My scope is need to check the voltages levels and I should say what type of voltage is that... I can plan with opto-couplers and bridge rectifiers. problems is i cant differentiate voltage levels and
I am using TLP181 optocoupler for turning on light with 12 v source. The device should turn on when signalled from microcontroller (ATmega128) PortB.0 to input of optocoupler. The curcuit looked simple but although there is voltage from microcontroller, it fails to turn on. What is the problem ? optocoupler that I am using is TLP181. (...)
I have designed a dc dc converter i.e from 12vdc to 311vdc.which is regulated. I have used sg3525 . The feedback is eshtablished using voltage divider resistive network at 311v side . I want to use 4n35 optocoupler instead of directly using voltage divider network so as to isolate low voltage components from high voltage.i havn't used 4n35 ever .
The only thing a zener and an optocoupler have in common is that they both have "er" in them. Why do you have a zener in your circuit? Why do you have that other diode? Why do you have two 10Ks in series with that zener that you don't need? What is it you actually are trying to accomplish?
hello, will this ckt work?? R1=R2=22k 2 watt.. whether it will blow the optocoupler ?? please help... . Reverse diode is usually not included into the photocoupler and must be added.. this could be work ... without transform this output as DC average... I suppose you will send the square 50Hz signal in
I am using a microcontroller to drive hbridge . Is there any optocoupler which i can use between microcontroller and ir2110 to protect the microcontroller ?
Last year for Christmas I did chaser circuit with AT89C4051+bc547+BT136, it was not recommended by this forum, (I was warned against bringing MC in contact with mains supply) was told to use an optocoupler. It just worked and was not perfect. And now - For using opto, as a prelim, I used PC817 separately , I connected it to 5v supply using 560
Are you aware of the huge signal delays caused by the optocouplers? Depending on the intended switching frequency, fast logic optocouplers might be required.
Dear Members, I am designing 2 KVa pure sine wave inverter system , using SG3525 to step up 24 Dc to 320 Dc , and then using IR2110 to make pure sine wave by SPWM signals from pic16f684 . I have a question that should I Use any optocoupler (like tlp250) between Microcontroller and Driving circuit or should I give signal directly to IR2110. (plz su

In page 9 (bottom right hand side) of the following, it talks about not saturating the optocoupler transistor in the cascaded opto feedback network. Why should it matter if the opto transistor saturates?
Hi there, I am successfully using the attached ECG circuit to get ECG signal. The problem is that this circuit needs two separate 9V DC batteries - one for the amplifier circuit & other for the isolation circuit (which has an optocoupler). This safety feature is great when one is physically (...)
what do u mean by fetch data...... use optocoupler with 220k resistor for each phase having star configuration
The circuit doesn't seem to make sense. Why you are using an optocoupler? Obviously there's no isolation problem. The circuit however suggests that the problem is about an unmodulated IR "beam". It will in fact suffer from ambient light, direct sunlight is the worst case. Optics is most likely required to make it work. Most optical (...)
The input is a high voltage pulse signal, I would like convert it into TTL signal so the microcontroller can capture the pulse width. I use optocoupler to isolated the the high voltage signal.
the dimmer circuit I'm using uses a potentiometer so I just need something to operate the potentiometer from a distant Whether u r ready to replace POT with optocoupler? or u wanted to operate the POT with a motor setup? How many steps brightness control u want? RF or IR/LASER? (RF is better) micro controller based or without u

@pplus can u tell what u mean by Vka? is the cathode voltage of tl431 or that of the optocoupler? thanks
Do you want to test the optocoupler or the FET? And is this an in-circuit detection, or do you want to check components on the bench?
Hello, This is a really big problem in using triac for switching AC devices using microcontroller and optocoupler.I made a circuit which uses optocoupler MOC3041 and triac BTA16-600BWG.Due to the minor delay in switching of Triac there is a jitter at the zero crossing of the signal.This has resulted in burning of coil in my lower quality (...)
