The MID400 is an optically isolated AC line-to-logic interface device for monitoring ON or OFF status of an AC power line. The logic circuitry operates from a standard 5V supply. The MID400 is packaged in a compact 8-pin plastic DIP. The optical isolation provided by the MID400 makes it suitable for power-to-logic interface applications such as industrial controls medical equipment, computers and other fail-safe type monitor systems in which status information about the AC line is essential.
The AC line voltage is monitored by two back-to-back GaAs LED diodes in series with an external resistor. A high gain detector circuit senses the LED current and drives the output gate to a logic low condition.The MID400 has been designed solely for the use as an AC line monitor.
It is recommended for use in any AC-to-DC control application where excellent optical isolation, solid state reliability, TTL compatibility, small size, low power, and low frequency operations are required. Features:
