ADum5401 reinforced insulation?


in Table 15 of ADum5401 the compliance with VDE 0884 Part 2 for basic insulation @560 V peak is stated. Is there newer info available about the compliance with VDE V 0884-10 of 2006 for reinforced insulation like for other iCouplers?

Best regards,

    Hello Norbert,

    The ADuM5401 was not able to pass the 10kV surge test to receive reinforced certification.  The VDE 0884-2 has an allowance for Basic insulation at a lower surge voltage.

    To support customers that need reinforced insulation, we offer the ADuM6401.  It has thicker polyamide insulation on the coils and carries a VDE-0884-10 certification.

    Best regards,
