Optocoupler lead-bend configurations are available as
options. In addition, partial discharge testing as per
VDE / IEC is also available as an option.
See the order information section in the data sheet to
determine if and which options are available to a specific
product. Contact the Vishay sales office for other option
The options are:
Option 1 VDE option
Option 6 400 mil (10.16 mm) lead spread DIP configuration
Option 7 Surface mount, gull wing DIP configuration with
Option 8 Surface mount, gull wing DIP configuration with
Option 9 Surface mount, gull wing DIP configuration
A specific option or combination of options can be ordered
by add the options definition field following the base part
number and CTR range (if applicable) as presented in the
This field is always 4 characters long and commences with
the character X. In the case of surface mounted products in
tape and reel format, the tape and reel option character “T”
will follow this field.
The possible combinations for these fields (1) are:
X001, X006, X007, X008, X009, X001T
(2), X007T, X008T,
X009T, X016, X017, X018, X019, X017T, X018T, X019T
(1) Not all options are available for all product types.
(2) The X001T option is only available on products that are available on the following SMD products SFH6106, SFH6156, SFH6186, SFH6206,
and SFH6286 series, e.g. SFH6106-3X001T .
OPTOCOUPLERS FOR SAFE ELECTRICAL INSULATION PER DIN EN 60747-5-5 (VDE 0884) (1)
The optocoupler listed are suitable for safe electrical
insulation only within the safety maximum ratings.
Compliance with the safety maximum ratings must be
ensured by protective circuits.
The partial discharge measurement ensures that no partial
discharge occurs during operation at maximum permissible
operating insulation voltage (VIORM). Permanent partial
discharge affects the insulating materials and can result in a
high voltage breakdown.
It is recommended that tests with the insulation test voltage
(VISOL) should not be made, otherwise partial discharge may
occur impairing the insulation characteristics. Thus partial
discharges also may occur at the maximum permissible
operating insulation voltage.
The insulation test per DIN EN 60747-5-5 (VDE 0884) is
carried out after all the other tests
