This diode-transistor photocouplers consist of an LED, optically coupled to a high speed photodetector to transmit electrical signals between circuits while still isolating your system from higher voltages. The 6N137 optoisolator is presented in an 8-pin DIP package.
The output features is an open collector and coupler parameters are guaranteed over the temperature range from -40℃~5℃. The internal shield provides a guaranteed Common Mode Transient Immunity (typical) 10KV/μs.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
