I am designing an electronic ckt on Orcad for Nacelle system and I hav to use an optocouplers HCPL-5500, 5600. When I used the HCPL-2601 optocoupler I am getting so many warnings like :No PSpiceTemplate for ISO3, ignoring....
Can anybody help me to find the equivalent diagram for this optpcoupler......

I have a circuit that contains 5v, 24v and 48VDC. I don't want to use optocoupler, because i want to keep the cost low and the circuit simple. What do you suggest me about this? Must i use or not? What problems may i encounter? Or what can i do instead of using opto to prevent problems?

Since you only seem to need the pulse rate rather than amplitude, why not a high speed optocoupler with shmitt logic o/p. You may need a transistor pre amp to get the voltage swing a bit higher to overcome the VD of the opto led.

Most likely you don't have enough current through opto's LED. You should drive it with 10mA. On 5V supply, you should use current limiting resistor of 360Ω and make sure your microcontroller or logic gate output has capability of sourcing 10-15mA.

Because the pulse is applied between the gate and the cathode for each thyristor.
As long you have antiparallel connection you must use at least on transformer (optocoupler etc) for one gate impulse . Once you have one impulse transformer is easiest to design it for two outputs (for driving two thyristors).

An optocoupler followed by a schmitt trigger should be fine. You need to choose your resistor on the LED side according to the current rating for the optocoupler. Being an ac source you should also put a diode in reverse across the LED to protect it from reverse voltage. There are other ways to do it but it is not worth compromising safety to save

Well the circuit using the TRIAC the potenciometer only adjust the RC time for the gate of the TRIAC.
So, you could control with a uC the time of the gate of the TRIAC and then you have a "digital potencimeter" in you dimmer. You should use an optocoupler for isolating the uC from the AC dangerous voltage.
