Background information:

USB ports for stationary computers have, unfortunately, the fundamental disadvantage to have no electrical isolation of signal lines.

In many applications in the consumer world, this restriction is not relevant because the PC connected to the USB devices are generally supplied through the bus and not through additional connections related to a second mass or to the protective earth have.

In the areas of data acquisition, control engineering or medical technology is such a galvanic decoupling of the connected devices, however, essential to prevent mutual interference from transients using the USB cable.

To this end, W & T to a family of USB isolators, which differ in the mechanical design as well as power supply and level of isolation voltage.
