    Hello,

    We have a DALI signal which comes into our non isolated offline LED driver. The DALI signal is isolated from the receiver in the LED driver by a TCLT1000 optocoupler..

    TCLT opto datasheet

    The problem is , that its too long to fit on the PCB. We need to use a smaller opto…..

    Do you think we will be able to use the LTV-356 optocoupler which is 3mm shorter….

    Will the clearance still be adequate with the LTV-356 opto? Also, if not, then can we just use a cutout in the PCB to increase clearance like that?
