The electronic alternative to relays
In introducing its new TERMOPTO – Terminal Sized Optos – Weidmüller is broadening its assortment of products with a family of 60 optocouplers that features a compact design and a compelling price-performance ratio.
TERMOPTO modules offer a space-saving electronic alternative to conventional electro-mechanical relays for isolating and adapting signals.
No bigger than two-tier terminal blocks, TERMOPTO modules have a design width of just six millimetres, which reduces the space required in electrical cabinets by >80 %. The modules have an enclosed housing with IP20 rating and reliably separate the input and output sides.
To ensure universal application versatility they have ten different input signals (5…220 VDC, 24…230 VAC) and can optionally be supplied with an AC or DC output (5…48VDC / 0.1A; 5…48VDC / 0.5A; 24…230VAC / 0.1A). Pluggable, standard cross-connectors reduce ground and supply-voltage connection times.
Customers are free to choose the connection technology with a choice between screw (clamping yoke) or PUSH IN technologies. PUSH IN reduces wiring times by up to 75%. Suitable for deployment in ambient temperatures from -20° C to +60°C, the optocouplers are equipped with a green LED status indicator and accommodate standard WS12/6 MultiCard markers. International approvals such as CE, cULus are in preparation.
