No-Wear Isolation of Potentials in Terminal Block Design

The TERMOPTO opto modules are characterised by a particularly compact design, pluggable cross-connections and an optimal price-performance ratio.

TERMOPTO offers a compact, electronic alternative to the electromechanical relay for electrical isolation and signal conditioning. Instead of an electromechanical solution that is susceptible to wear, a maintenance-free and compact terminal block with integrated electrical isolation is used. This saves space, reduces the amount of servicing and increases system availability. In addition, the overall accessory needs are reduced, because cross-connectors and markers from the terminal portfolio can be used.

Compact design reduces space requirements in the switching cabinet by > 80 % compared to conventional relay solutions. Wear-free semiconductor switches and extensive protective circuits ensure long service life and reliable switching cycles. LED status indicator provides information on the switching state. Closed design for space-saving, side-by-side arrangement. No end plate necessary; the electronics are mechanically protected. PUSH IN screwless connection system and the pluggable cross-connection reduce wiring time by > 50 %.

The TERMOPTO opto module is used in industrial applications in which electrical isolation and signal conditioning without switching amplification is sufficient.

The compact design in terminal-block format saves space on the rail and offers the option of a pluggable cross connection.

The choice between 10 input voltages and 3 output voltages as well as between screw or PUSH IN connection technology gives 60 variations for different applications.

The integrated protective circuit ensures sufficient protection in applications with resistive as well as slightly inductive and capacitive loads. For purely inductive, capacitive or comparable loads with high switch-on and switch-off peaks, such as solenoid valves or filament lamps, ensure that the module is dimensioned appropriately or an additional safeguard is used.
