Toshiba has added two high current products to its TLP240 photorelay series that can be used in smart meters, security equipment, medical equipment and other automation and control systems. The company plans to start mass production of the TLP241A and TLP241AF photorelays in November.

The TLP240 series adopts a double-mold DIP4 package, realizing an isolation voltage of 5000Vrms (AC, 1 minute). The latest addition to the series will offer a wide range of off-state output terminal voltage, from 40 to 600V, allowing selection to meet system requirements for applications that include factory automation, smart meters and security equipment.

Other key features:

  • On-state current: ION = 2A (maximum), allowing use in applications that include factory automation, which requires control of high current.
  • Line-up of two products with different clearances and creepage distances
    TLP241A: 7mm (minimum)
    TLP241AF: 8mm (minimum)
