IXYS Releases 600V, 1A Power SIP Relay

IXYS Integrated Circuits Division, now part of Littelfuse, Inc., today introduced the CPC1984Y, a 600V, Normally Open Power SIP Relay, rated for up to 1A DC/1Arms continuous load current, twice the load current of the company’s most popular power relay. This high-reliability device uses optically coupled MOSFET technology to provide 4000Vrms of input-to-output isolation. In fact, the CPC1984Y SIP Relay offers the best combination of load voltage and load current available with a 4000Vrms isolation voltage. The optically coupled outputs, which employ IXYS ICD’s patented OptoMOS architecture, are controlled by a highly efficient infrared LED.

With a typical on-resistance rating of just 0.51 ohms and a maximum rating of just 0.66 ohms, the CPC1984Y offers significantly lower on-resistance than competitive devices. Its 600V blocking voltage rating provides sufficient design margin for both 110Vrms/220Vrms power line applications for universal power supplies.

“The 600V blocking voltage rating and 1A load current handling capability combine to make the CPC1984Y SIP Relay well suited for a variety of high-performance switching applications,” said Mark Heisig, General Manager and Vice President at IXYS Integrated Circuits Division. “This includes industrial and motor controls, utility meters, instrumentation, medical equipment and home appliances.”

CPC1984Y SIP Relays offer these key benefits:

  • Low drive power requirements reduce the CPC1984Y’s power consumption.
  • Snubbing circuits aren’t needed to suppress arcs when switching.
  • Flammability rating of UL 94 V-0 ensures high flame retardance of the device’s plastic package.
