Opto-couplers | Solid-state

The unambiguous and secure separation of potentials in the different data and control signals – this is important for the trouble-free functioning of equipment and production facilities. The opto-coupler is to an increasing degree responsible for the coupling between sensor and controls, or controls and actuators. The opto-coupler offers several other advantages over mechanical relay couplers, in addition to the electrical isolation of input and output circuits. This includes a high switching frequency, a high repetition accuracy, a long lifespan, and resistance to shock. CONTA-CLIP offers opto-couplers in a variety of voltages and power ranges. These modules and units are provided with the appropriate protective input circuitry so that they are suited for industrial applications.
