IC 4N35 Optocoupler

We can use the same program used for the transistor example above. Yes, it’s an opto. A transistor is a semiconductor device which can be used to amplify or switch electronic signals.

Conclusions Now, I know how to use three new electronic components: Hi I have read that in Submitted by Anonymous not verified on Tue, Hi J, So the difference is that a resistor isn’t directional and will therefore allow current to flow from either side.

Search Search this site: I do not understand what dataseet the difference and when it’s better to choose a transistor, an opto or a relay. They differs from the building technique which results in different specifics. Improvement The circuit above can be improved by using this circuit: This little component has dataasheet legs each of them having a different usage.

Once plugged into the Arduino board it will looks like: They do exactly the same of the legs of a transistor. I have fixed the image and also added an improved circuit which should be better.


The BC is not capable of delivering lot of current so use it with care.

For all the details have a look at the detailed specifics linked above but they mostly work the same way: I suppose in this case, an optical isolator would prevent surges and other damaging events from passing to the parts that work well, while a resistor would let it pass right on through.

Leg 3 isn’t connected to anything: So I bought this base workshop kit with an Arduino Uno; but my memory of these components is a bit old and I was even wondering what was some of the components of the kit One of the pages in the datasheet will show the pinout: Once assembled on the Arduino board, the circuit will looks like: Thanks for this simple explanation, very useful for a beginner like me.

Thanks for these precisions, it helped me to understand a lot too! To get the code refer to the Hello World blog post. Thank you for the good article!

The simple circuits I built will be used as base for more complex stuff. In the simple Arduino based circuits transistors are usually used as switch for electronic signals. Submitted by Pierre-Alain Dorange not verified on Tue, Probably related to power necessary.

So the difference is that a resistor isn’t directional and will therefore allow current to flow from either side. This is preferable against the one explained before because it won’t float when the microcontroller is shut off or when it is not actively drive the pins.

Could you please explain to me why? I studied electronics before going to IT embedded systems and I wanted to get back to electronic as a hobby.


The circuit above once created using the Arduino board will looks like: I bought an Arduino starter kit with some basic components, and I know among them is an optocoupler. We will use a transistor controlled by the Arduino board to act as a switch on an external circuit.

Well, nothing complex or useful actually. You can see a demo in the video below. I’ll briefly describe them and we’ll see some simple examples of circuits built upon an Arduino Duemilanove board which make use of them.

If we plug the diode as seen on the pictures above when we’ll push the button the LED will turn on. The most common function of a diode is to allow an electric current to pass in one direction called the diode’s forward direction while blocking current in the opposite direction the reverse direction.

Confused Submitted by Hubschrauber not verified on Sun, We already know these terms from the transistor introduction above. Thanks for noticing and posting a comment. This confirms the behaviour of a diode: Popular content All time: Email Required, but never shown. A diode is a two terminals electronic component that conducts electric current only in one direction.
