ISOLATED FULL DUPLEX RS232C INTERFACE


Posted on Mar 18, 2013

This self powered interface circuit electrically isolates the TxD and RxD lines from the PC serial port and protect the PC from direct connection to hazardous voltages. The isolator is intended to provide electrical isolation between a computer and the equipment connected to its serial port. This can be necessary when the target system works at a completely different voltage level, or when earth loops must be avoided.
