Featuring immunity to surges and transients in static states and commutations, our silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCR), also known as thyristors, are ideal for single- and three-phase power line networks, even in harsh environments up to 150°C. Thyristors (SCR) belong to our STPOWER family.
In addition to AC, DC and capacitive ignitor circuits, these unidirectional switches are found in high-voltage industrial circuits as well as automotive equipment and all other segments where electromechanical relays are not operative or unreliable.
Whenever a bidirectional switch function is needed at 20 A and more, a back-to-back SCR configuration will work with no compromise on the function/immunity.
An even simpler bidirectional AC power line switch is also available.
ST’s 8H Triacs have been designed for Industrial, Building, Residential, Appliances. Based on the new ST’s technology, the 8H Triacs are able to work at 800V & 150°C without compromise. It makes 8H Triacs the right choice to run in very hot confined electronic environment and improve the reliability of your system. Thanks to 8H Triacs robust dynamic turn-off commutation and high noise immunity at high temperature you can reduce your system size while increasing functional safety.
