Power Optocoupler VM 5
four channel power optocouplers
load current 3A per channel
higher current possible by parallel connecting
The short circuit protected optocouplers are suitable for
non-contact switching of valves, brakes, DC contactors,
and other loads of up to 3Adc. For higher loads, the admissible
output current can be multiplied by simply connecting
the outputs in parallel. Excitation is performed via an optodecoupled input, and is thus isolated from the power part. An LED indicates
the switching status.
The supply voltage of the output drivers is 24Vdc. The
output drivers are positively switching, permanently shortcircuit-
proof, and switch loads of up to 3Adc even with a
maximum ambient temperature.
The devices switches off in case of a supply voltage
failure or a short-circuit at the output, and will not be
ready to resume operation until the fault has been cleared
and excitation has been performed again.
The devices are incorporated in an insulating material
housing and can be snap-on mounted onto TS35.
