Industrologic, Inc., announces the release of their UOB8, Universal Opto-Isolator Board.

The Industrologic UOB8 is an eight channel opto-isolator board assembly designed to allow microcontroller and other logic circuits to be interfaced to both input and output signals that require opto-isolation.

The eight optocoupler circuits may be used individually as input or output isolation circuits and include terminal block connections for convenient wiring to nearly any circuit. On-board reverse voltage protection diodes and ESD suppression capacitors are included in the optocoupler input circuitry.

The standard UOB8 board comes with 6N139 or equivalent high gain split-darlington optocouplers installed, but can be special ordered with 4N33 or equivalent medium gain darlington optocouplers installed to provide totally isolated individual open-collector outputs.

Two 16 pin DIP resistor packs are used to select the optocoupler input current and the opto output pullup resistance, providing an easy method of customizing the UOB8 to almost any application.

The UOB8 is available as a complete circuit board assembly, and can be enclosed in an optional ABS plastic enclosure. The circuit board is 2.75 by 4.25 by 0.6 inches, while the enclosure is 3.6 by 6.0 by 1.6 inches total size including mounting tabs.
