NEW! 5 kV Five-Channel Isolators
Five-Channel IsoLoop® IL200-Series Isolators are now available in 5 kV isolation/1 kV Working Voltage versions.

5kV Isolators

Parts are available with 5/0, 4/1, and 3/2 channel configurations.

With the five-channel parts, NVE now offers high-voltage
V-Series two, four, and five channel data couplers, as well as
RS-485, RS-422, and PROFIBUS transceivers.

Key V-Series specifications include:
  • 5 kVrms isolation (1 minute) per UL 1577
  • 1 kVrms Working Voltage (line voltage) per VDE 0884-10
  • >1014 ohm barrier resistance
  • Wide-body packages with True 8 mm creepage
All the 5 kV isolators are in stock for immediate delivery.

GMR Switch Demonstration Video
NVE Vice President for Sensors Jay Brown shows how GMR Switches compare to Hall effect and AMR sensors.

There’s a live demonstration with three sensors, a magnet, and no tricks.

(SPOILER ALERT: The GMR Switches are smaller, more sensitive, and lower power than the other sensors.)

Embedded World 2015
Distributor HY-LINE Power Components showed IsoLoop isolators at the recent Embedded World exhibition in Nürnberg, Germany. There was strong interest in NVE isolators, particular for I²C and SPI.
Pi Day Applications
In honor of Pi Day 3/14/15, here’s the
Biot-Savart Law calculation for current-induced
magnetic field:

The equation can be used to calculate the field due to current through a circuit board trace. With this information, NVE AA-Series analog magnetic sensors can measure current.

Download the Current Measurement Application Bulletin for more information.
