The ISO1211 and ISO1212 devices are isolated 24-V to 60-V digital input receivers,
compliant to IEC 61131-2 Type 1, 2, and 3 characteristics, suitable for programmable logic
controllers (PLCs) and motor-control digital input modules. Unlike traditional optocoupler
solutions with discrete, imprecise current limiting circuitry, the ISO121x devices provide a
simple, low-power solution with an accurate current limit to enable the design of compact and
high-density I/O modules. These devices do not require field-side power supply and are configurable
as sourcing or sinking inputs.
The ISO121x devices operate over the supply range of 2.25 V to 5.5 V, supporting 2.5-V,
3.3-V, and 5-V controllers. A ±60-V input tolerance with reverse polarity protection helps ensure
the input pins are protected in case of faults with negligible reverse current. These devices
support up to 4-Mbps data rates passing a minimum pulse width of 150 ns for high-speed operation.
The ISO1211 device is ideal for designs that require channel-to-channel isolation and the ISO1212
device is ideal for multichannel space-constrained designs.
The ISO121x devices reduce component count, simplify system design, and reduce board
temperatures compared to traditional solutions. For details, refer to the
