we are using since years the ADUM5202 in an application for 230VAC Isolation

now we realized that datasheet specifications has been changed

from datasheet 10/08, Tabelle 4: VDE (Pending) Reinforced insulation, 560V


datasheet  05/12  Tabelle 4  now table 15 VDE (Pending) Basic insulation, 560V

We use the i Coupler in a TÜV certified system specified for saftey

What does the datasheet change mean for us?


I am sorry - I checked the PCN10_025

Replaced CSA IEC 60950-1 400 Vrms reinforced insulation with 600 V rms basic
and 250 V rms reinforced.

I confirmed with the Product Line.

In German:
…. das Bauteil und somit das Gerät erfüllt nicht mehr die Anforderungen.
Mit dem ADuM6202 ist dies wieder gegeben.
Dies geschah meines Wissens nach durch eine Änderung der Standard’s – speziell
UL und entsprechende Anpassungen der Testmethoden bei der VDE.
Laut unseren Informationen geschah dies NACH Release to the market of the

This means the ADum5202 is not longer consistent to the VDE Norm you are

The ADUM6202 is pin compatible to the ADUM5202.
