Immediately after turnoff, the flyback current forces the common-mode voltage on the high side shunt to a diode drop below ground, approximately -0.
The RDHA702FT10A2FK datasheet states that the internal LED diode drop is a nominal 2.
The logic inputs (IN) are protected for positive faults up to (V-)+12V; however, negative faults can exceed the negative supply by only a diode drop.
Low voltage applications benefit from the extra margin afforded by saving the two diode drops inherent in diode bridges.
During the time td the current flowing through the diode drops to the value of 0.
