Teccor’s Quadrac devices are triacs that include a diac trigger mounted inside the same package. This device, developed by Teccor, saves the user the expense and assembly time of buying a discrete diac and assembling in conjunction with a gated triac. Also, the alternistor Quadrac device (QxxxxLTH) eliminates the need for a snubber network.
The Quadrac device is a bidirectional AC switch and is gate controlled for either polarity of main terminal voltage. Its primary purpose is for AC switching and phase control applications such as speed controls, temperature modulation controls, and lighting controls where noise immunity is required.
