3 from 5 Xvive not really compatible

I measured the transfer ratio of the original 5C1 and this Xvive replacement.
At low diode currents, they are about equal (0.2 mA > 80 kOhm). At high diode currents (10 mA), the 5C1 reaches 200 Ohms, while the Xvive type doesnt go beyond 500 Ohms. Using these in a compressor might cause a low compression ratio. You may need to mod the driving amp gain.
Also, the spread in the transfer is high. I bought five, one had to be rejected because the transfer was off by more than 200% (lowest R was 1200 Ohm).
The other four had spread within 30%, and only two were within 10%, so I just could use these for my stereo opto compressor.
So I would recommend other (high gain, low-ohmic) variants of the Xvive opto ports to be a 5C1 replacement. For stereo, buy more than you need and do your own matching.
When you want to use these for just switching (Ampeg, Mesa Engineering), you will not have these problems. The leakage of the cells is pretty low.

5 from 5 Xvive VTL5C1

I have just tested two of my ten ordered: the functionality is the same as the original Xvive VTL5C1 components installed in the audio equipment being repaired, therefore good quality price ratio for my use.
