Datasheet Updates
V-Series Isolator datasheets have been updated for
VDE 0884-17 Reinforced Isolation, best-in-class 1.2 kVrms Working Voltage, and Intrinsically Safe certifications.

NVE will be closed Monday, September 5
for Labor Day.
VDE 0884-17 Reinforced Isolators
      File Number:      
NVE’s remarkable 6 kV “V-Series” isolators have always had best-in-class isolation voltage, Working Voltage, MTBF, and barrier resistance. And now they’re some of the first isolators 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.

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 (SELV) range of 24 to 60 volts.
Best-in-Class Speed, Power, and EMI
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance for safety. 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.

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:
