Maugar In my example an ohmmeter is connected at the output, in order to see the change in resistance. If you get a value either way or no value at all, then certainly there is a problem with the LED, and you should find another optocoupler. The firehose by 4-pib and forty beers by night, An engineer may never sleep and still be just as bright. How to test an optocoupler — AntiMath This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Any help would be apreciated. The purpose of an optocoupler is to transfer signals from one circuit to another yet keep them galvanically isolated.

These information are very good indeed. Step 2 If the LED is good then we should check the phototransistor, you could measure it with the ohmmeter just like the LED between pins 3 and 4 the emitter and collectorand you should get a high resistance value 4-pun ways if the phototransistor is good. AF modulator in Transmitter what is the A? Sunil on March 3, at 3: Evis on November 12, at 7: Kannan E on July 19, at 9: In my example an ohmmeter is connected at the output, in order to see the change in resistance.
Siroos on October 14, at Dec Please correct the pin numbers in image. Here I optocouplet to show you how to check if an optocoupler is working. If the LED is good then we should check the phototransistor, you could measure it with the 4-pon just like the LED between pins 3 and 4 the emitter and collectorand you should get a high resistance value both ways if the phototransistor is good.
Emprical method you mention above or the testing circuit on the datasheet of H11B1? Input port and input output port declaration in top module 2. The time now is Mihai on February 2, at 5: PV charger battery circuit 4. Mihai on September 17, at Measuring air gap of a magnetic core for home-wound inductors and flyback transformer 7. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Mihai on March 18, at I was wondering if i could just bypass the optcoupler and see if it works.
I have two circuits. Distorted Sine output from Transformer 8. Shahid on August 7, at 1: Hi, maybe a stupid question: The nice thing about standards is that you have so many to choose from.
With no voltage applied to the LED pins 1 and 2and with an open base pin 6there should be a high resistance between oltocoupler 5 and 4. If the input is at 2V DC, then the output resistance should be around — ohms. The firehose by day and forty beers by night, An engineer may never sleep and still be just as bright.
Pls let me know. ModelSim — How to force a struct type written in SystemVerilog? Nupra on March 18, at 6: Mihai on August 27, at Here is the web site. Your email address will not be published. Mihai on July 15, at 8: I hope it helps. Arvind Vijaykumar on June 1, at Hi, The MOC, is a phototriac coupler, meaning that instead of the 4-;in, it has a phototriac, which is basically a triac with the gate driven by the LED. What is the function of TR1 in this circuit 3. I guess, it should work mostly the same as a normal triac.
It depends on the optocouplrr circuit you are supplying the voltage on collector of the optocoupler, optocoupler will never transfer the voltages of circuit1 to circuit2, it decreases resistance between your supplied voltages at collector and emitter on the input of circuit2. I was referring to the junction resistance.
I appriciate… I tried that emprical method for H11B1 optocoupler. Equating complex number interms of the other 6. Mohamed on October 9, at 9: When Firefox stops working, you fire up Chrome. I like the way you explain things. Thanks for the easy to follow explanation 4p-in how to rest an optocoupler.

This IC is used to provide electrical isolation between two circuits, one part of the circuit is connected to the IR LED and the other to Photo-transistor. The digital signal given to the IR LED will be reflected on the transistor but there will be no hard electrical connection between the two. This comes in very handy when you are trying to isolate a noisy signal from your digital electronics, so if you are looking for an IC to provide optical isolation in your circuit design then this IC might be the right choice for you. Then Pull high the collector pin of the transistor using a resistor here I have used 1K and connect the collector pin to the output of your desired logic circuit. The Emitter pin 4 is grounded.
