Description:
A triac is a solid state silicon
AC switch which may be gate
triggered from an off-state to an
on-state for either polarity of
applied voltage.
Features:
Glass Passivation
Selected for Inductive Loads
Applications:
AC Switch
Heating
Motor Controls
Lighting
Solid State Relay
Switch Mode Power Supply
