I would like to add some sensors to my controller project which i completed recently (http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,109316.msg855545.html
The sensor circuitry requires its power to be isolated from the controller. The data output from the sensor will be opto-isolated from the input pins on the arduino chip.
The question is will the DCP021212 do the trick: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/dcp021212.pdf
The sensor circuitry is low power draw and requires +12V input. Would using the DCP021212 achieve the same result as using a separate transformer power supply to galvanically isolate the sensor from the controller board?
Thx in adavance as usual... sorry for the n00b questions in advance.
