Available in industry-compatible pin-outs, the transceivers are packaged in a wide-body 16-pin SOIC package with 8mm of creepage and clearance and operate over the -40-degree Celsius to +125-degree Celsius temperature range.
All are in industry standard 24DIP packages apart from the 20W family which is in a 2 x 1 package, all materials are UL94V-0, and offer 8mm creepage and clearage.
Compatible with several international standards for the safety and effectiveness of medical electrical equipment, it includes: IEC60601-1-2 Ed4 2014, which addresses electromagnetic disturbances, requirements, and tests, and IEC606011:2005+A:2012 2xMOPP, which regulates means of patient protection, ensuring a minimum of 4,000VAC isolation, 8mm creepage, and double insulation.
This configuration isolates the coil from pins achieving a greater creepage distance between them, explained Gerard Healy, Product Manager, Pulse Electronics Power Business Unit (Pulse Power Division).
The relay series features creepage and clearance distances greater than 8 mm between the control and output contacts and between the individual contacts.
Those include gloss reduction, change of color, change of adhesion strength, development of surface defects, and growth of rust creepage at the scribe.
A small surface-mount package that meets the 8 mm creepage and clearance distance required for high-voltage safety regulations.
They include a spark analysis extension that is claimed to be the only available product to analyse and optimise the electromechanical clearance and creepage of designs.
IXYS' ISOPLUS packages provide high isolation capability (up to 2500V), improve creepage distance, and dramatically reduce total thermal resistance.
Incorporating the company's proprietary Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI) chemistry, VpCI-373 eliminates blistering, creepage and adhesion problems.
