Here is what I have used with far better success than transformers. For
some reason the transformers I get hold of have quite large phase error
(ie. they are cheap and get warm).


Cp has the dual role of killing RF, and compensating for the H->L
threshold of the HC14. It sits on the hot side, and charges up through
the protection diodes for the next 200us pulse.
It will drive 10m of POF.
Substitute an opto coupler of choice if you need less isolation.
