DC-Input Lead Free General Purpose Phototransistor Optocoupler

Currently Viewing:

The HCPL-817-000E optocoupler contains a light emitting diode optically coupled to a phototransistor. It is packaged in a 4-pin DIP package and available in wide-lead spacing option and lead bend SMD option. Input-output isolation voltage is 5000 Vrms. Response time, tr, is typically 4 us and minimum CTR is 50% at input current of 5 mA.



  • Current Transfer Ratio (CTR: min. 50% at IF = 5 mA, VCE = 5 V)
  • High input-output isolation voltage (Viso = 5000 Vrms)
  • Response time (tr: typ., 4 us at VCE = 2 V, IC = 2 mA, RL = 100 Ohms)
  • Compact dual-in-line package
  • UL approved
  • CSA approved
  • IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-2 approved
  • Options available are:
    060E = IEC/EN/DIN EN 60747-5-2 Option
    W00E = 0.4" Lead Spacing Option
    300E = Lead Bend SMD Option
