GS182 RS232 Serial Isolator
The GS182 optically isolates the transmitting signal of a RS232 input to a RS232 output, ideal for isolating weighing accessories and isolating ground loops.
The GS182 optical isolators are used to isolate two serial devices. With GS182 optical isolator, only light passes between two serial devices, this is performed with a LED and a photosensitive transistor. The benefits of using opto-isolated converters is that, it protects your RS232 devices from transient surges, lightning and spikes. Optical isolation also eliminates ground loop and noise problems because the ground of two connected devices are separated. The user will require an external 9-12V DC power supplied to the unit.
