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.
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
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?
Dear all, I am going to check a terminal block's voltage. 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

You could, I expect, use the optocoupler as an emitter follower and avoid saturation. Provided that the pin receiving the follower output is happy with a somewhat reduced output voltage. If you trigger on the turning-on edge, and your frequency & min-off-time of the coupler is low enough to let saturation recovery tun its course, then fine. Trig
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.

interrupt pin RB0 to optocoupler output
If you better look in optocoupler, inside on one side is transistor with optical control of his base. If you need small size you can use some adequate ratings SMD SOT-23 transistor and his base control by adjusted input signal which you use on LED side of optocoupler. But you should know that then you dont have isolation of circuit For (...)

Use optocoupler for that, dont put any additional load on ignition contact lock. You dont even need ignition lock, You can make circuit which will sens difference between turned off engine 12V-12,73V and when engine is on 13,8V-14,2V from lighter plug or similar.
Hi I m working on a circuit which need to drive an optocoupler(4n35) using a micro controller. The problem is when i connect the uc with the optocoupler the low logic pin of the controller rise upto say 2.26V. I have checked the datasheet of the at89s52(micro contoller i m using) it says the pin can sink a max of 10 mA so i added (...)
Are you trying to drive the FETs directly with the optocoupler, or are the optocouplers driving other gate drive ICs? You should post the actual gate drive schematic. Insufficient current in the isolators can cause several problems. Of most concern is the possibility that the turn off time of each FET will be increased greatly, leading to cross
Will my circuit connection work? At default state, the MCU pin is at state 0. If the MCU pin changes state to 1 it activates the 12v solenoid. Does the optocoupler make any difference if it is there or not? 69608 maybe you should add a pullup resistor 10k on pin colector opto
