Allied Electronics, Inc. Datasheets for Diacs
Diacs are bi-directional diodes that switch AC voltages and trigger silicon controlled rectifiers (SCRs) and triacs. Except for a small leakage current, diacs do not conduct until the breakover voltage is reached.

|A DIAC is a full-wave or bidirectional thyristor. Whenever the amplitude of applied voltage exceeds the breakover voltage rating of the DIAC, it switches from blocking-to-conducti ng-state.|
|Teccor brand SIDACs are silicon bilateral voltage triggered switches, with greater power-handling capabilities than standard DIACs. Upon application of a voltage exceeding the breakover voltage point, a SIDAC switches on,...|
|DIAC, 32 V (Typ.) Breakover Voltage Silicon bi-directional trigger device intended for use in thyristor (SCR and TRIAC) trigger circuits, energy saving lighting circuits and other switching functions. Special Features...|
|DIAC, 32 V (Typ.) Voltage Breakover, 250 mW Power Dissipation, DO35 Package Type Glass–chip passivation These devices are triggered from a blocking–to–conducti on state for either polarity of applied voltage...|
