CARROLLTON, Texas, 5 March 2007. OPTEK Technology in Carrollton, Texas, is offering a family of optical isolators designated the OPI1270, OPI1280 and OPI1290 series that have visible red LED with photo transistor or Photologic sensor, and transfer data through a plastic flexible cable.
"These isolators were designed for applications that require high voltage isolation between input and output, as well as signal communication over short distances," says Alan Bennett, vice president of sales and marketing for OPTEK Technology.
The OPI1270, OPI1280 and OPI1290 optical isolators maintains data transmission characteristics while being available in a variety of custom lengths.
The OPI1270 and OPI1280 Series isolators feature a visible red LED and a photo transistor sensor, while the OPI1290 Series isolator features a visible red LED and a Photologic totem-pole output sensor. In all three devices, the LED and sensor are housed in separate opaque molded plastic housings and coupled by a plastic flexible cable.
The isolators feature an isolation voltage of more than 20 kilovolts with 1.27-millimeter lead spacing. Power dissipation rating is 100 milliwatts, with an operating temperature range of -40 to 100 degrees Celsius.
