I'm trying to troubleshoot a Renishaw H-2000-5062-07-A optical receiver for a tool piece used in a milling machine. It has several of these 8-SOIC(?) parts and I very much suspect that they are optoisolators with transistor outputs. The package is of a white plastic typical to many optoisolators and it is 5mm wide. What looks to be a manufacturer's mark is the letter Q with breaks in the ellipse at 2, 6 & 10 o'clock. That's followed by the number 206 and below that is 045S. I've had no luck finding a company that used that Q marking or those numbers. Does anyone have any information on this part? Thank you!

    \$\begingroup\$ A slightly wider photo that shows the traces connecting to the part would be helpful in figuring out which parts are potentially matching candidates. \$\endgroup\$

Logo does not match, but perhaps a pin compatible version of Fairchild/ON MOC206 optocoupler with transistor output?

enter image description here

Fairchild datasheet

The logo resembles QP semiconductor, but I don’t find anything pointing to them making optocouplers.

    \$\begingroup\$ Based on which pins seem to be used and unused on the device I'd say that you nailed it in one. Thank you! \$\endgroup\$

I think it's from QT Optoelectronics, which was acquired by Fairchild in 2000 Fairchild was then swallowed up by ON in 2016.

enter image description here

The part does not appear in QT's 1995/6 databook, which is available online, but's most likely MOC206-M as @winny suggests (+1), and the ON part should be a match. Optoisolators do tend to age due to the LED losing brightness, especially if it is driven hard.

    \$\begingroup\$ That would make perfect sense since the naming convention, date code and placement matches that of Fairchild too. \$\endgroup\$
