CT/CR-7008     Contact Closure (8  Channels)    Click for a larger image of Fiber Optic Contact closure
For Contact Closure or Status Monitoring Applications  

 Typical fiber optic contact closure application  

The Litelink CT/CR-7008 system consists of the CT-7008 transmitter and CR-7008 receiver. Both units utilize digital encoding techniques to transmit and receive eight separate contact closures over a single optical fiber conductor. 

The CT-7008 may be activated by dry contacts or TTL signals and the CR-7008 will reproduce these inputs as isolated output contact closures corresponding to the respective input signal. All inputs are transient protected against excessive surges present on the signal and power leads. The unit is completely fail-safe in that a loss of operating power or a broken fiber will force all contacts to the open condition. Integral indicators are provided on both units to continuously indicate the link and contact closures status as well as proper operating power thereby making system troubleshooting simple.
