Interworld Electronics announces the launch of two new ruggedised USB isolators tested to meet heavy industrial EMC standards.
The UHR401 is a single port ruggedised USB isolator while the UHR402 is a dual port ruggedised USB isolator. The UHR Series isolators safeguard sensitive computing equipment while maintaining reliable USB communication and data integrity in adverse industrial environments.
Providing 4 kV isolation between upstream and downstream USB ports, the UHR Series isolators protect expensive equipment from dangerous ground loops and voltage transients. The UHR Series is supplied with high retention USB connectors that require up to 3.2 lbs-force to disconnect them, helping the isolators to hold standard USB cables secure, especially in high vibration applications.
The Heavy Industrial EMC specifications allow the rugged USB isolators to operate in hazardous electrical environments, especially near variable frequency drives, motor control centres, welding, and large electrical loads. The UHR Series can also be integrated into medical applications requiring 60601-1 certification.
Powered from an external 10 to 30 VDC power supply unit, the UHR Series isolators provide up to 500 mA of power to connected downstream USB devices.
