Optocoupler adalah komponen elektronika yang berfungsi sebagai penghubung berdasarkan cahaya optik. Pada dasarnya Optocoupler terdiri dari 2 bagian utama yaitu Transmitter yang berfungsi sebagai pengirim cahaya optik dan Receiver yang berfungsi sebagai pendeteksi sumber cahaya. Masing-masing bagian Optocoupler Transmitter dan Receiver tidak memiliki hubungan konduktif rangkaian secara langsung tetapi dibuat sedemikian rupa dalam satu kemasan komponen. Dalam Kombinasi ini, LED berfungsi sebagai pengirim sinyal cahaya optik Transmitter sedangkan Phototransistor berfungsi sebagai penerima cahaya tersebut Receiver.

Stack of GaAs infrared LEDs Stack of photodiodes driving Low to high [note 7] Practically unlimited Main article: Resistive opto-isolator The earliest opto-isolators, originally marketed as light cells, emerged in the s. They employed miniature incandescent light bulbs as sources of light, and cadmium sulfide CdS or cadmium selenide CdSe photoresistors also called light-dependent resistors, LDRs as receivers.

In applications where control linearity was not important, or where available current was too low for driving an incandescent bulb as was the case in vacuum tube amplifiers , it was replaced with a neon lamp. The trademark has since been genericized , [note 8] but the original Vactrols are still being manufactured by PerkinElmer.

Other industrial applications included photocopiers , industrial automation , professional light measurement instruments and auto-exposure meters. American guitar and organ manufacturers of the s embraced the resistive opto-isolator as a convenient and cheap tremolo modulator. Such fluctuations take hours to settle and can be only partially offset with feedback in the control circuit. Diode opto-isolators employ LEDs as sources of light and silicon photodiodes as sensors.

When the photodiode is reverse-biased with an external voltage source, incoming light increases the reverse current flowing through the diode.

The diode itself does not generate energy; it modulates the flow of energy from an external source. This mode of operation is called photoconductive mode. Alternatively, in the absence of external bias the diode converts the energy of light into electric energy by charging its terminals to a voltage of up to 0.

The rate of charge is proportional to the intensity of incoming light. The energy is harvested by draining the charge through an external high-impedance path; the ratio of current transfer can reach 0. The fastest opto-isolators employ PIN diodes in photoconductive mode.

The response times of PIN diodes lie in the subnanosecond range; overall system speed is limited by delays in LED output and in biasing circuitry. To minimize these delays, fast digital opto-isolators contain their own LED drivers and output amplifiers optimized for speed. These devices are called full logic opto-isolators: their LEDs and sensors are fully encapsulated within a digital logic circuit.

A special class of analog opto-isolators introduced by Burr-Brown uses two photodiodes and an input-side operational amplifier to compensate for diode non-linearity. One of two identical diodes is wired into the feedback loop of the amplifier, which maintains overall current transfer ratio at a constant level regardless of the non-linearity in the second output diode.

The proposed configuration consist of two different parts. One of them transfers the signal, and the other establishes a negative feedback to ensure that the output signal has the same features as the input signal.

This proposed analog isolator is linear over a wide range of input voltage and frequency. The gate of a MOSFET requires relatively small total charge to turn on and its leakage current in steady state is very low.

To reach the required threshold, solid-state relays contain stacks of up to thirty photodiodes wired in series. Transistor beta in the same batch can vary from to , resulting in variance in bandwidth. Optical channel always works one way, from the source LED to the sensor. The sensors, be it photoresistors, photodiodes or phototransistors, cannot emit light.

The simplest bidirectional opto-isolator is merely a pair of LEDs placed face to face and held together with heat-shrink tubing.

If necessary, the gap between two LEDs can be extended with a glass fiber insert.


Optocoupler Types, Applications with Examples and Circuit Diagrams

Pin 5: Collector Pin 6: Base The base terminal of the phototransistor is externally available. A single phototransistor is used at the output stage of a simple isolating optocoupler. As we can see in the below-shown circuit diagram, when a high voltage appears across the input side of the Optocoupler, a current start to flow through the LED. Due to this current LED will emit light.


4N35, 4N36, 4N37 product information

Principle 4N35 The 4N35 is an optocoupler for general purpose application. What an optocoupler does is to break the connection between signal source and signal receiver, so as to stop electrical interference. In other words, it is used to prevent interference from external electrical signals. Broadly it is widely used in electrical isolation for a general optocoupler. See the internal structure of the 4N35 above.
