Fundamentals of Isolation: Making Safe and Accurate High-Voltage Measurements

Webinar Recording 

Adopting best practices in high-voltage measurement applications ensures more accurate results, safety for the equipment, and (most importantly) safety for the engineer. The isolation methodology needed for performing these measurements plays a critical role in selecting the right equipment and properly using the instrumentation. 

Watch the recording for a discussion on the basics of high-voltage measurements and common isolation topologies. Additional topics include:

  • Signal noise reduction and improved noise immunity
  • Avoiding ground loops
  • Analog vs digital isolation
  • Protection for expensive equipment and the user
  • Common-mode voltage and fluctuating ground potentials
