The BT136 is TRIAC with 4 A maximum terminal current. The gate threshold voltage of the BT136 is also very less so can be driven by digital circuits.
Since TRIACs are bi-directional switching devices they are commonly used for switching AC applications. To switch off control of an AC load that consumes less than 6 A with a digital device like a microcontroller or microprocessor then BT136 is the best choice.
|Main Terminal 1 (Pin 1)||Connected to Phase or neutral of AC mains|
|Main Terminal 2 (Pin 2)||Connected to Phase or neutral of AC mains|
|Gate (Pin 3)||Used to trigger the SCR.|
- It has a highly sensitive gate
- It is suitable for uses in mains appliance control
- BT136 is a 4 amp which can be used as like switch for your home electric appliance which is 220 V operated We can use it to control the switch of your fan, led light.
- AC Light dimmers
- Strode lights
- AC motor speed control
- Noise coupling circuits
- Controlling AC loads using MCU/MPU
- Ac/DC Power control
- Light dimmers
- Washing machines
- Motor control
- Hand tools
Commutation is not required in AC switching circuits because the TRIAC will not latch on the state since the AC voltage reaches zero for every half cycle.
