    I am having an issue understanding the Datasheet for the THE LCC100 CLAIR IC.

    I am looking at the Input Control Current to Activate and it states a maximum of 8mA. So if I am going to power this IC with 1 AA battery and if my math is correct. I would need a 187 Ohm resistor (1.5V/.008A=187) between the input and the battery?

    When looking at this Datasheet what other information should I pay close attention to?

    Where can I look to see exactly what can go through the NC/NO contacts as in Amps and Volts?

    Thanks again for your help, as I am jumping into this new world of electronics.

    No its an opto-Led input , just use a 470 ohm resistor in series with the led with a 5v signal, and this will switch on the output mosfets, note that one set of fets is normally-closed and the other is normally-open.

    If I use a 9V battery what resistor should I use, I can only use a 9V batt or a AA 1.5V batt.
