Isolated Digitizer

Standalone Transient Recorder and Isolation System up to 100 MS/s: ISOBE5600

High-voltage measurements are time-consuming and cost-intensive. Therefore, security and efficiency were allocated highest priority in HBM’s isolation test instrumentation. You can unreservedly place your trust in ISOBE5600 – the leading isolation system worldwide for precise transfer of your measurement signals to the data acquisition system:

  • Secure data transmission in high-voltage environments thanks to fiber-optic isolation
  • Worldwide use and proven a thousand times over – already in the 4th generation
  • Cost-efficient transient recorder for applications with low channel counts
  • Top-class measurement technology through optimal integration of hardware and software

2 Versions: Isolation Systems and Transient Recorder

Transmitter unit:

  • Battery-powered (ISOBE5600t) for high voltage applications
  • Line-fed (ISOBE5600tm) for medium voltage applications

Receiver units: 

  • Receiver type ISOBE5600m for use as transient recorder
  • Receiver type ISOBE5600r for use as isolation system

ISOBE5600 as transient recording system

Fiber-optic isolation enables the transmitter to securely send measurement data from the area subject to high voltage to the receiver.

Isolated Digitizer for Genesis HighSpeed

The 6600 Isolated Digitizer from HBM is a remote, fiber optic front end for the Genesis HighSpeed transient recorder.

The 6600 Isolated Digitizer from HBM is a remote, fiber optic front end for the Genesis HighSpeed (GEN3i, GEN3t, GEN7i, GEN7tA and GEN17tA ) transient recorder. Each channel is completely remote programmable. The 6600 Isolated Digitizer is designed to be used in the harshest environments including the strongest electric and magnetic fields.

The fiber optic link eliminates ground loops and guarantees a safe isolation between the device under test and the control room in short circuit, high voltage, and high power labs.

The HV-variants (HV6600) are the high voltage / high power models. The front-end comprises extra shielding that allows you to use it in even the most demanding applications and harshest environments. The built-in dual batteries of the front-end can be recharged when the system is not operational using an external battery loader. The front end runs up to 24 hours on internal battery, while the remote controlled “sleep” mode can easily extend this runtime multiple times.

The MV-variants (MV6600) are the medium voltage/medium power models. This front-end can be connected directly to the mains. The built-in power supply offers a 1.8 kV isolation. This feature allows for continuous operation of the system.

While operational, the front-end’s internal battery is recharged. When required, the front-end can be disconnected from the mains and battery operated for about 5 minutes to allow for tests that involve more than 1.8 kV. Also, this build-in battery ensures proper data storage in case AC mains is lost during acquisition.

Both the MV as well as the HV versions are available with two different sample rates: 25 MS/s for all standard applications and an ultra fast 100 MS/s version for even the most demanding applications.
