Product description

General technical description
The 16 optocoupler inputs of our yamutec® USB module are the ideal component for medium-sized projects in control and regulation technology. With our module you can reliably and quickly capture signals from up to 16 sources.

The inputs of our USB module consist of optocouplers. These ensure galvanic isolation of the signal circuit from the control circuit, so that your computer system is perfectly protected. The optocoupler inputs work in a voltage range of 3V to 30V. Our modules take into account the standards and regulations for EMC and RoHS. This makes the yamutec® USB 16-fold optocoupler module the perfect addition for building automation, process and environmental technology.

Your advantages with the yamutec® USB optocoupler module
The 16 optocoupler inputs of our USB module support your system in signal acquisition with important properties. This allows you to achieve high switching performance and reliably record fast input pulses over longer periods of time. There is also no mechanical wear on the inputs, which ensures a long service life for the modules. Due to the galvanic isolation, the signal and control circuits can also have different voltage potentials. The optocoupler also protects your valuable control technology from the consequences of overvoltages. The insensitivity to shock and vibration creates more stability in the control and regulation circuit.

USB relay module with Plug and Play technology
In addition, the yamutec® USB optocoupler modules with 16 inputs have the Human Interface Device (HID) process and do not require any driver installation. This enables more reliable and faster communication compared to standard modules. You save time with the help of Plug and Play technology.

The integration of multiple USB modules in a common system
If you want to connect several yamutec® USB modules of the same series together, it is possible to set an identification number for each individual optocoupler module using the on-board coding switches. Recesses in the aluminum housing are provided for mounting the module. You can mount the USB module either on a wall or on a top-hat rail. Built-in control LEDs inform you about the status of the 16 inputs.

Where can our optocouplers be used?
Due to the product features described above, our optocouplers are suitable for the following purposes:

  • for medical and safety technology to ensure surge protection
  • when controlling circuit parts that have different voltage potentials - for example interface and network cards
  • to comply with standards in the field of high-speed communication
  • Automation and safety technology with high switching times and fast information transmission

Software implementation
The Yamutec® USB-OPTO16 modules enable seamless integration into various widely used programming languages using the included YMLib.dll file. This DLL file opens up a variety of possibilities and makes programming much easier.
