Triacs Demonstrate High Current Levels
Presenting on-state current ratings of 16 A rms, ON Semiconductor’s BTAxxx Series silicon TO220-packaged triacs offer gate trigger current (lgt) levels of 35 mA and 50 mA in 3 and 4 quadrants. The snubberless devices exhibiting power ratings of 8 A, 12 A and 16 A, blocking voltage to 800 V and immunity to dV/dt of up to 2,000 V/µs. The Pb-free triacs are suitable for industrial and control applications. Pricing per unit is $0.45 at 8 A, $0.47 at 12 A and $0.54 at 16 A in 1,000 quantities.
