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:
Planar Passivation
Selected for Inductive Loads
Applications:
AC Switch
Heating
Motor Controls
Switch Mode Power Supply
Lighting
Solid State Relay
Ordering Information:
Example: Select the complete
eight, nine or ten digit part number
you desire from the table - i.e.
