A DIN rail-mountable and optically isolated electronic module has been developed by BEI Technologies Inc.'s Industrial Encoder Div. for use with incremental encoders. Isolation circuitry in the module acts as an encoder interface to boost output to the receiving electronics. It can be used to eliminate ground loops, reduce signal degradation from long cable runs by acting as a repeater, or to distribute an encoder signal to multiple input devices.
