DIN rail optical isolator for encoders

By Control Engineering Staff July 1, 2000

Goleta, Calif. -Said to be the first of its kind, this DIN rail mountable, optically isolated, electronic module is designed specifically for use with incremental encoders. Isolation circuitry acts as an interface to provide electrically robust encoder output to receiving electronics. It can eliminate ground loops, reduce signal degradation from long cable runs, or provide means to distribute an encoder signal to multiple input devices.
