Video: Why do you need USB isolation to protect your instrumentation? | Acromag

In this Acromag video, Don shows you why you need USB isolation to protect your instrumentation. He gives a quick tutorial using a computer monitor to demonstrate how an isolator can benefit you. The isolation protects equipment from electrical surges and transient voltage spikes. It also eliminates ground loop currents flowing between the PC and peripherals which can cause damage and inaccurate measurements. Additionally, isolation minimizes conducted noise from static discharge, magnetic fields, and radio frequency interference. Acromag’s USB isolator is very easy to use. The isolator inserts in-line with the USB connection and operates transparently. No special software drivers are required. The unit receives power from the PC’s USB port and isolates that power to the connected device. High noise immunity and low radiated emissions ensure reliable data transfer in sensitive applications. A number of high-performance features help provide convenient and dependable operation. The green LED indicates that power is being received and blinks if the connected device draws too much current. An internal jumper lets you switch from Full Speed (12 Mbps) to Low Speed (1.5 Mbps) communication. The reset button offers a simple way to reinitialize a connected device without breaking the cable connection. High-retention USB sockets keep cables securely attached under shock and vibration.
