Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) has launched photorelays that achieve an 80% reduction of trigger LED current over the previous model. The new TLP171 series employs a high luminosity LED to control the trigger LED current to 0.2mA (max.) against the 1.0mA (max.) of the previous TLP170 series. The reduction of power consumption offers developers the option of battery drive or direct drive from a microcontroller, which can reduce the number of peripherals and achieve smaller set design. The new product is suited for such applications as the replacement of mechanical relays, security systems, measuring and control instruments, factory automation control systems and amusement machines.
