USB-Isolator Industry, 4kV

USB-Isolator with
4kV isolation voltage, #33204


Background information:

USB ports for stationary computers have, unfortunately, the fundamental disadvantage to have no electrical isolation of signal lines.

In many applications in the consumer world, this restriction is not relevant because the PC connected to the USB devices are generally supplied through the bus and not through additional connections related to a second mass or to the protective earth have.

In the areas of data acquisition, control engineering or medical technology is such a galvanic decoupling of the connected devices, however, essential to prevent mutual interference from transients using the USB cable.

To this end, W & T to a family of USB isolators, which differ in the mechanical design as well as power supply and level of isolation voltage.


Product Features:

  • Galvanically isolated connection between two devices with USB ports
  • Isolation voltage min. 4000 volts DC
  • Power supply insulator and terminal via the USB
  • Optional external power supply on the upstream side
    This option allows the connection of power-hungry USB devices
    with a load current up to 1A without affecting the insulation voltage
  • Supports Low Speed and Full Speed USB devices
  • No installation of additional software drivers required
  • Housing suitable for mounting on DIN rails
  • Conforms to standardsboth in office and industrial environments:
    • Increased noise immunity for industrial areas
    • Stricter noise emission for residential and commercial areas
