The FC-ISO-C Encoder signal conditioner and optical isolator with open collector output is ideal for use with single-ended (open collector, NPN, pull-up, push-pull, totem pole) or differential line driver encoders. Optical isolation separates the input signals from three complementary open collector outputs (A, B, Z, A-not, B-not, Z-not) rated for 5-36 VDC that can be used in single-ended configurations.
The FC-ISO-D Encoder signal conditioner and optical isolator with differential line driver output is also ideal for use with single-ended (open collector, NPN, pull-up, push-pull, totem pole) or differential line driver encoders. Optical isolation separates the input signals from three differential line driver outputs (A, B, Z, A-not, B-not, Z-not) rated for 5 VDC.
Provide optical isolation between an encoder signal and PLC, servo drive, or other input device
Solve electrically noisy signal problems
Use as a repeater to allow longer cable runs
Convert a differential line driver encoder signal to an open collector single-ended signal
Change encoder signal voltage to match receiving electronics input
Ideal for use with encoders, servo drive encoder signal inputs and outputs, or as a multi-channel, high speed optically isolated interface for sensors like photoelectric and proximity switches

Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. Today I am going to show you our new High speed optical isolators from our friends at FACTS engineering. There are 2 new parts, an FC-ISO-C – with open collector output and FC-ISO-D with differential line driver output. These are typically used in encoder applications where connecting up between an encoder and a high speed input module on say… one of our PLC’s, a servo controller or even a variable frequency drive. These FC series signal conditioners offer isolation between the input and output to help eliminate electrical noise. The FC-ISO-C Inputs are single ended open collector, NPN, or differential line driver encoders. They have complementary inputs and are rated for 4.5 to 7.5 and 12 to 26VDC at frequency response up to 1MHz. Optical isolation separates the input signals from three complementary open collector outputs rated for 5 to 36VDC that can be used in single ended configurations. The FC-ISO-D Inputs are single ended open collector, NPN or differential line driver encoders. They have complementary inputs and are rated for 4.5 to 7.5 and 12 to 26 VDC at frequency response up to 1 MHz Optical isolation separates the input signals from three differential line driver rated for 5 VDC. Both isolators are setup via dipswitches located on the top here and bottom here (Zoom in). These are the same style hardware as some of our communications and signal conditioners which are slim line housing. They are DIN rail mountable or direct panel mountable via these mounting holes located on the tabs. You can find the agency approvals and specs for these FC Series encoder signal conditioners/opto isolators on our website at: www.automationdirect.com Don’t forget: we sell other signal conditioners and isolator as well. Check back with us often on AutomationDirects websites or on Youtube.com/Automationdirect for more Kickstart videos. If you are watching us on YouTube, please let us know what you think about the products or how you plan to use them in your application by leaving us a comment down below. Thanks for watching and we hope to see you again soon.
