Why Do I Need Electrical Isolation?

Examining the important aspects of electrical isolation; what it does, why we need it, and how to test for it. Acromag is in the business of signal conditioning. We manufacture circuits that amplify, isolate, filter, and convert one signal form to another. Most of these circuits also provide electrical isolation. However, added isolation has a…

How to Measure Temperature with High-density Ethernet I/O

An Acromag Solutions Video Application Note Along with monitoring points for pressure, level, and flow, a chemical manufacturer has up to 500 temperature measurement points; both thermocouple and RTD, scattered throughout their process. Running and maintaining twisted pair wire for them all is too expensive; both initially and in the long term, therefore an ethernet…
