Solar photovoltaic inverters convert electrical power from a solar panel and deploy it to the utility grid with up to 98% efficiency. An isolation barrier must protect measurement circuitry from the power-handling circuitry and from switching transients. This article suggests how iCoupler isolation technology can reduce cost, increase smart grid integration, and improve safety of solar PV inverters.
A key requirement in industrial and instrumentation (I&I) applications is a reliable data interface for inspecting connected systems via a diagnostic port. The RS-232 bus standard is one of the oldest and most widely used physical-layer bus designs. First introduced in 1962, this single-ended data transmission standard continues to be widely used for communications over a short cable.
