ARM 20-pin 2.54mm Galvanic Isolation Adapter
Galvanic isolation is used where two electric circuits must communicate, but their grounds may be at different potentials. It is an effective method of breaking ground loops between the two circuits. Galvanic isolation is also used for safety, preventing accidental current from reaching ground through a person's body.
iSYSTEM Galvanic Isolation Adapters provide a basic isolation that withstands high voltages.
To prevent injury to personnel when dealing with potentially hazardous voltages it is mandatory to have a second protection measure in place, in case the first insulation barrier fails. This is termed double or, reinforced isolation. How should a double isolation be implemented depends on the use-case or application setup.
It is a user's responsibility to check local safety related directives valid for his company and country to make sure all requirements are met.
