The Microlink 3000 is a modular hardware system for data acquisition and control. It offers unrivalled flexibility, allowing almost any instrument or transducer to be connected to a personal computer. With a range of over 40 interchangeable modules, Microlink is equally suited to high or low speed data acquisition or to control, timing or counting operations.

Section 10.2 of the Microlink 3000 Hardware Manual, covering opto-isolation for the 3020 and 3021 counting modules, has been updated. It now reads...
Should you wish to change the input resistor, a wire link has been provided for each input immediately behind the screw terminal strip. Remove this link and add additional resistance. The total resistance needed for a particular switching threshold can be simply estimated as:
Threshold Voltage - 1 KOhms
This produces the nominal threshold current of 1mA at the desired voltage. This threshold will not be very accurate due to the spread of opto-isolator characteristics.
The isolators limit the maximum count frequency to about 50KHz.
