Optoisolator

A device which contains a optical emitter, such as an LED, neon bulb, or incandescent bulb, and an optical receiving element, such as a resistor that changes resistance with variations in light intensity, or a transistor, diode, or other device that conducts differently when in the presence of light. These devices are used to isolate the control voltage from the controlled circuit.
