I have a sensor (File Attached) that gives me a digital signal with high (12 V) and low (0 V). However, my Digital Input module (File Attached) can only go up to 5 V. Thus, I need to somehow convert the signal coming from the sensor into 5 V.
Following is what I have right now
I am using ULN2004A to convert a high signal from the sensor (12 V) to a low signal of 0 V and a low signal (0 V) from the sensor to 5 V using a pull-up resistor. The schematic is attached below.
What I am interested in is if there is a better and easier way to achieve what I am doing here.

This part would do it. Set Vdd to 5V and the input could be 12V.
Thanks a lot for your reply Chris.
Is there a TINA - TI model that I can experiment this part with ?
Unfortunately we do not have models for any of the parts we purchases from Harris Semi. anything that begins with a CD. We did not get the data needed to creat models in the purchase.
