The ISO3086T is an isolated differential line transceiver with integrated oscillator
outputs that provide the primary voltage for an isolation transformer. The device is a full-duplex
differential line transceiver for RS-485 and RS-422 applications that can easily be configured for
half-duplex operation by connecting pin 11 to pin 14, and pin 12 to pin 13.
These devices are ideal for long transmission lines since the ground loop is broken to
allow for a much larger common-mode voltage range. The symmetrical isolation barrier of the device
is tested to provide 4242 VPK of isolation for 1 minute per VDE between the
bus-line transceiver and the logic-level interface.
Any cabled I/O can be subjected to electrical noise transients from various sources.
These noise transients can cause damage to the transceiver and/or near-by sensitive circuitry if
they are of sufficient magnitude and duration. These isolated devices can significantly increase
protection and reduce the risk of damage to expensive control circuits.
The ISO3086T is specified for use from 40°C to 85°C.
