Würth Elektronik introduces its WL-OCPT dual-channel optocoupler phototransistor

Würth Elektronik has expanded its WL-OCPT optocoupler product family with the DIP-8 design. 

Two-channel optocoupler phototransistors with eight pins are now available. This design contains two circuits inside a single component constructed from two input LEDs and two output phototransistors, therefore two separate circuits can be controlled with a single component. 

WL-OCPT features a stable current transfer ratio (CTR) over the entire operating temperature range (-55 degree C to +110 degree C). The DIN-EN-60747-5-5-certified components have an insulation voltage of 5000V, a collector-emitter voltage of 80V and a maximum forward current of 60mA.

The Würth Elektronik optocouplers are suitable for optical and space-saving galvanic isolation in power supplies, chargers, computers, microprocessors, instruments, machines, ammeters or smart meters. Binning of the dual-channel WL-OCPT is in a CTR range of 130-400 per cent, tested at an input current of 5mA and a collector-emitter voltage of 5V. Depending on the land pattern on the PCB, the DIP-8 optocoupler packages are available in standard, M, S and SL lead frame variants. The lead frames are made of copper to guarantee the best solderability.

Würth Elektronik eiSos Group is a manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components for the electronics industry and a technology company that spearheads pioneering electronic solutions. The product range includes EMC components, inductors, transformers, RF components, varistors, capacitors, resistors, quartz crystals, oscillators, power modules, wireless power transfer, LEDs, sensors, connectors, power supply elements, switches, push-buttons, connection technology, fuse holders and solutions for wireless data transmission.

Würth Elektronik is part of the Würth Group, the global market leader in the development, production and sale of fastening and assembly materials.
