Agency File Number
L Package: E71639
400 to 1000
0.2 to 15
This Sxx08x SCR series is ideal for uni-directional switch
applications such as phase control, heating, motor speed
controls, converters/rectifiers and capacitive discharge
These SCRs have a low gate current trigger level of 0.2 to
15 mA at approximately 1.5V, with a sensitive version of
this series having a gate trigger current less than 500µA.
The sensitive gate SCR version is easily triggered by sense
coils, proximity switches, and microprocessors.
