Overview:
Motor drives and Inverters work in high voltage domains and require safety isolation and protection to meet regulatory requirements. Optocouplers have been the defactor standard in providing this function for over 3 decades and has its own optocoupler-only safety standard IEC 60747-5-5. Join Avago Technologies in this Webinar, to learn about Optocoupler Isolation Advantages, as well as how optocouplers can help to meet safety and protection requirements in Motor drives and inverters designs.

Who Should Attend:
Hardware Designers, System Architects, Power Electronics Engineers for Motor drives and Inverters.

You will Learn:

  • Safety Isolation requirements for Motor Control and inverters.
  • Optocoupler isolation advantages
  • Isolated gate drivers protection features
  • Using Isolated modulators or isolation amplifiers for safety & protection.
