NVE Corporation Product Announcement

NVE V-Series Isolators Certified for Reinforced Isolation Under VDE 0884-17

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.—August 25, 2022—NVE announced today that its “V-Series” isolators have been certified for Reinforced Isolation under VDE 0884-17, the new “gold standard” for isolation.

Reinforced Isolators That Are Actually Reinforced
Other isolators use single-layer barriers made of flimsy oxide or cheap plastic. They claim “reinforced” by squeaking by on electrical tests, but that doesn’t make them reinforced. NVE’s unique isolation barrier uses a special polymer formulation reinforced with ceramic for the industry’s toughest barrier.

Key VDE 0884-17 specifications are:
  • Isolation voltage: 6 kVrms
  • Working voltage: 1.2 kVrms
  • Surge immunity: 12.8 kVpk
  • Surge rating: 8 kV 
  • Transient overvoltage: 6 kVpk

Best-in-Class Speed, Power, and EMI
In addition to best-in-class isolation voltage and Working Voltage, NVE isolators have best-in-class performance including speed to 110 Mbps, low power, and virtually undetectable EMI emissions that will won’t run afoul of EMI standards.

Intrinsically Safe
In addition best-in-class isolation, several V-Series part types are ATEX / IEC 60079 certified for IS-to-IS intrinsically safe applications. The devices have a full 500 Vrms intrinsic safety rating, and unlike other isolators, they are rated for the full Safety Extra Low Voltage range of 24 to 60 volts.

True 8™ Package
NVE’s exclusive True 8™ package has true 8-millimeter creepage per IEC 60601 in a 16-pin JEDEC-compatible wide-body outline.

Multiple Configurations; Good Availability
V-Series isolators are available in a full range of channel configurations with the shortest leadtimes in the industry.
