Future Electronics Promotes VOM160 and VO2223A Phototriacs from Vishay

Montreal, Canada – February 4, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently announced immediate availability of Vishay’s VOM160 and VO2223A phototriacs, making appliances smarter with opto-isolation.

Even the humble coffee maker now has sophisticated microprocessor-based power control features, requiring the control of AC power using sensitive digital devices on the same board. Vishay’s phototriacs are particularly useful in isolating these devices from noisy and dangerous line voltages. Vishay’s VOM160 comes in an extremely small footprint of just 5 x 5mm, while offering an outstanding safety isolation test voltage of 3750VRMS. With a mere 0.4pF of coupling capacitance from input to output, it provides outstanding noise isolation. This is a critical feature for controlling high line voltages with sensitive microcontrollers, while a VO2223A, in a slightly larger footprint, offers considerably higher load current.

The VOM160 and VO2223A offer a small footprint, low trigger current, solid state reliability, and high voltage in high current packages. Typical applications include coffee maker heater controls, AC driven pump motor controls, dishwasher motor and heater controls, washing machine controls, electric stove tops, and countertop hot cooking appliances.
