Planar passivated high commutation three quadrant triac in a SOT78D  (IITO-220) internally insulated plastic package intended for use in circuits where high static and dynamic dV/dt and high dI/dt can occur. This "series BT" triac will commutate the full RMS current at the maximum rated junction temperature without the aid of a snubber where "high junction operating temperature capability" is required.

Features and Benefits

•    3Q technology for improved noise immunity
•    High commutation capability with maximum false trigger immunity
•    High immunity to false turn-on by dV/dt
•    High junction operating temperature capability (Tj(max) = 150 °C)
•    High voltage capability
•    Planar passivated for voltage ruggedness and reliability
•    Triggering in three quadrants only
•    Internally insulated package
•    Isolated mounting base with 2500 V (RMS) isolation


• Electronic themostats (heating and cooling)
• High power motor controls e.g washing machine and vacuum cleaners
• Rectifier-fed DC inductive loads e.g DC motors and solenoids
• Refrigeration and air conditioning compressors
