Part Number: ISO1212
My customers are demanding products with fail-safe function.
Does ISO1212 have a fail-safe function (double insulation structure)?
We are considering replacing the 24Vin photocouplers.
In reply to Anand Reghunathan:
In reply to koki takakura:
The insulation of ISO1212 can break down under two kinds of stress conditions:
1. If the voltage rating across the barrier is exceeded: 2.5kVRMS for 1 minute or 6 kVpk surge. This condition never occurs in a 24V system.
2. If there is overvoltage on the 24V input causing overheating inside the chip. In this case, ISO1212 is designed to handle +/-60V operation in normal operation . This is the maximum voltage that can usually occur in a 24-V system. Hence damage to insulation of ISO1212 due to overheating is also prevented.
I hope this helps solve customer's concerns.
Please also take a look at http://www.ti.com/lit/an/slla370a/slla370a.pdf. This tech note highlights how ISO1212 can offer various advantages when compared to existing solutions in market.
