The new one-port Ulinx UHR401 and two-port Ulinx UHR402.

USB isolators have been introduced by B&B Electronics. Designed to isolate and protect connected equipment from surges, spikes and electrostatic discharges carried on USB cable, these also protect themselves due to their rugged construction.

Capable of withstanding industrial networking hazards like shock, drop, vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI) and temperature extremes, these are equipped with high retention ports that hold USB cables firmly in place to eliminate data loss and, in extreme cases, the risk for fire caused by loose cables and arcing.

Rated for a temperature range of -40 to +80°C, these provide Level 4 ESD protection (15kV air, 8kV contact) as well as 4kV isolation between the upstream and downstream USB ports.

Applications include industrial control and manufacturing, remote sensing and remote metering, instrumentation, point-of-sale, test and measurement, laboratory information systems (LIMS) and medical applications requiring EN 60601-1 certification.
