High-Voltage Measurements and Isolation

High-Voltage Measurements and Isolation

This tutorial is part of the National Instruments Measurement Fundamentals series. Each tutorial in this series teaches you a specific topic of common measurement applications by explaining theoretical concepts and providing practical examples. There are many issues to consider when measuring high voltage. When specifying a data acquisition (DAQ) system, the first question one should ask is whether the system will be safe. Making high-voltage measurements can be hazardous to the equipment, to the unit under test, and to you and your colleagues. This tutorial covers the concept of isolation, as well as discussing National Instruments' isolated products. A PDF of the material is available for download as well.
