Today’s Industrial equipment trend is toward smaller footprints and greater energy conservation to address environmental issues and save costs. Along with this, the temperature rise that results from a high-density PCB layout and the noise generated due to high-speed power devices creates problems for system designers. The RV1S9x60A photocouplers solve these problems to withstand harsh operating environments with three key features: low threshold input current (IFHL), high operational temperature, and high noise tolerance to protect microcontrollers and other logic circuits from high voltage transients when the photocoupler transfers high-speed input signals.

The products of this optocoupler family are available in a variety of packages for a given reinforced insulation, and minimum creepage distance to ensure safe operation: 

  • Small (SO-5)
  • Small and 8mm creepage (LSO-5)
  • Long-creepage 14.5mm (LSDIP)


  • Low threshold input current reduces power consumption, allowing the photocoupler drive circuit to suppress heat generation in the system power supply. (RV1S9160A 2.0mA, RV1S9060A 2.2mA, RV1S9960A 3.8mA)
  • High common-mode rejection (up to 50kV/μs) reduces board layout design time and reduces noise measure costs.
  • High operating temperature enables layout space savings by mounting the photocoupler near the IGBT or MOSFET power device


  • General power inverter (DC to AC)
  • AC servo motor control-
  • PLCs
  • Robot arm controller
  • Solar and wind input power conditioner
  • Battery management for energy storage and charging systems
