Hi Guys,

I have bought a triac which have a value of fusing current = 166 A2S for Tp=8.3ms mentioned in the data sheet

I am wondering how can i check this value? Also , for the current pulse width triggering the TRIAC (0.5ms).

Thank you for your support

there is also a max rate of rise of current at turn on to be observed too

to check I^2T rating of triac, get a fuse with half this rating - put in series with Triac, fire into a near short - if the fuse goes and the Triac survives - the rating for the triac was likely correct ...

Thank you Orson for your help,
Would you please show me the circuit how to connect the fuse? another question, why should the fuse be half the I^2T !!
