The OPTO-150 is a miniature, 15kV rated high voltage optocoupler which integrates low voltage LED drivers with high voltage photo detector diodes. Designed for ease of use, the OPTO-150 delivers circuit isolation in a space-saving (0.55”L x 0.65”W x 0.25”H) encapsulated package.

Typical applications for the OPTO-150 include high voltage switching, high voltage isolation, external voltage sensing, voltage level shifting, and mass spectrometry.
