Welcome Package for Opto Isolators
New high voltage opto isolators are always a welcome addition to a designers. Optek has a new configuration that you may find handy.
They have axial fiber optic isolators offered in isolation distances from 18mm to 80mm. Providing power electronics engineers with a means to isolate high voltage input/output circuits over varying distances, TT electronics OPTEK Technology has developed a series of axial optical isolators using plastic optical fiber. Designated the OPI1270 Series axial fiber optic isolators, the devices are constructed using a visible red LED emitter and a phototransistor detector in separate opaque molded plastic modules, linked by a shrouded optical cable that shields the optical signal from dust and other contaminations.
