Saelig Introduces USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Isolator For Electrical Isolation of USB Ports
USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Isolators eliminate ground loops and ground potential differences - ideal for measurement, industrial, automotive and audio technology applications.
By: Saelig Co. Inc.
The ADQ-USB 3.0-ISO isolators automatically detect SuperSpeed (5Gbit/s), High-Speed (480Mbit/s), Full-Speed (12Mbit/s) or Low-Speed (1.5 Mbit/s) connections. The model ADQ-USB 3.0-ISO-PS includes a +5 V power adapter with a lockable 5.5mm barrel connector (bayonet lock) for a safety. For industrial and automotive applications, the ADQ-USB 3.0-ISO-W version can accept 10 to 36 VDC from an external power source via a 2-pin lockable Phoenix-type connector to power devices with up to 900 mA. The external power input is protected against reverse polarity and short-circuits.
The isolation voltage between PC and USB device is 1kV (continuous)
Housed in a robust aluminum housing with rubber bumpers and designed for an operating temperature from -20 to +70degC, the Alldaq USB 3.0-ISO isolators are suitable even for applications in harsh environments. An optional DIN rail mounting kit is also available for permanent installations.
The ADQ-USB 3.0-ISO can protect computers and USB devices effectively against interference voltages, while also eliminating ground loops. Typical applications include: electrical isolation between measurement instruments and PCs, rejection of ripple pickup in studio equipment, removing differing ground potentials in industrial control equipment, and protection against voltage peaks in automotive set-ups.
Compact in size (3.6" x 2.5" x 1.3" - L x W x H incl. rubber bumpers) and weight (4.5oz) the ADQ-USB 3.0-ISO series of USB3.0 isolators are made in Germany by Alldaq, a prominent manufacturer of a wide range of measurement solutions for use in industry, research, servicing, and education; they are available now from Saelig Company, Inc.
