The 4N35 from Vishay is a through hole phototransistor output optocoupler with base connection in 6 pin DIP package. Each optocoupler consists of gallium. 4N35 is an optocoupler integrated circuit in which an infrared emitter diode drives a phototransistor. They are also known as optoisolators since they separate. Optocoupler, Phototransistor Output, with Base Connection. DESCRIPTION families include the 4N35, 4N36, 4N37, 4N38 couplers.

And how it works is we give enough power to the anode and cathode pins, so that the LED is sufficient power to turn on.

When off, the phototransistor cannot conduct. I am learning how optocoupler works. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

4N35, 4N36, 4N37 product information

So these are all the pin connections. In this project, we will show how to connect an optocoupler chip to a circuit. Post as a guest Name.

Welcome Login Sign up. Hidden LED needs protection too. See the internal structure of the 4N35 above. A toggle switch was placed on the input side of the optocoupler circuit in order to switch on and off the circuit. On the output side, being there is electrical isolation, we need to place a power source so that the load, in this case, an LED can turn on.


Even when the load short circuit occurs, it won’t affect the control board, thus realizing good electrical isolation. Electrical isolation can be very important, especially in circuits where the input power to the circuit is very high and there are other parts in the circuit that only require a very small amount of power. This above circuit built on a breadboard is shown below. So if there is an incident optocoup,er as a surge of power into the input of the circuit, it doesn’t affect the area that only requires a small amount of power, since it’s isolated from the input.

When the LED is electrified, it’ll emit infrared rays. Since light is the media of the transmission, meaning the input terminal and the output one are isolated electrically, this process is also be known as electrical isolation.

The third pin is left unconnected. And so the resistor is there for exactly the same reason it is in every other LED circuit to limit the current and thereby protect the LED, as this quote from the tutorial you are following makes clear:.


Its pinout is shown below. Why optocoupler 4N35 needs resistor? Then the NPN phototransistor is power on when receiving the rays. The 4N35 is an optocoupler for general purpose application. Inside the optocoupler is an IR LED on one side between pins 1 and 2 in the image below and a phototransistor on the other pins 4, 5 and 6. We connect the output and the voltage necessary to power the output to the collector terminal.

Therefore, without optocoupldr IR LED being on, the phototransistor will be in nonconduction move and no current can flow through the phototransistor, meaning anything connected to output will not be powered. Lesson 11 DC Motor Control. Pin 1 and 2 are connected to an infrared LED. So if the power to the input is changed, this pptocoupler not affect the power on the output, and vice versa.
