The AD210 is the latest member of a new generation of low
cost, high performance isolation amplifiers. This three-port,
wide bandwidth isolation amplifier is manufactured with sur-
face-mounted components in an automated assembly process.
The AD210 combines design expertise with state-of-the-art
manufacturing technology to produce an extremely compact
and economical isolator whose performance and abundant user
features far exceed those offered in more expensive devices.
The AD210 provides a complete isolation function with both
signal and power isolation supplied via transformer coupling in-
ternal to the module. The AD210’s functionally complete de-
sign, powered by a single +15 V supply, eliminates the need for
an external DC/DC converter, unlike optically coupled isolation
devices. The true three-port design structure permits the
AD210 to be applied as an input or output isolator, in single or
multichannel applications. The AD210 will maintain its high
performance under sustained common-mode stress.
Providing high accuracy and complete galvanic isolation, the
AD210 interrupts ground loops and leakage paths, and rejects
common-mode voltage and noise that may other vise degrade
measurement accuracy. In addition, the AD210 provides pro-
tection from fault conditions that may cause damage to other
sections of a measurement system.
The AD210 is a full-featured isolator providing numerous user

mode voltage isolation between any two ports. Low input
capacitance of 5 pF results in a 120 dB CMR at a gain of 100,
and a low leakage current (2 µA rms max @ 240 V rms, 60 Hz).
High Accuracy: With maximum nonlinearity of ± 0.012% (B
Grade), gain drift of ± 25 ppm/°C max and input offset drift of
(± 10 ± 30/G) µV/°C, the AD210 assures signal integrity while
providing high level isolation.
Wide Bandwidth: The AD210’s full-power bandwidth of
20 kHz makes it useful for wideband signals. It is also effective
in applications like control loops, where limited bandwidth
could result in instability.
Small Size: The AD210 provides a complete isolation function
in a small DIP package just 1.00" × 2.10" × 0.350". The low
profile DIP package allows application in 0.5" card racks and
assemblies. The pinout is optimized to facilitate board layout
while maintaining isolation spacing between ports.
Three-Port Design: The AD210’s three-port design structure
allows each port (Input, Output, and Power) to remain inde-
pendent. This three-port design permits the AD210 to be used
as an input or output isolator. It also provides additional system
protection should a fault occur in the power source.
Isolated Power: ± 15 V @ 5 mA is available at the input and
output sections of the isolator. This feature permits the AD210
to excite floating signal conditioners, front-end amplifiers and
remote transducers at the input as well as other circuitry at the
Flexible Input: An uncommitted operational amplifier is pro-
vided at the input. This amplifier provides buffering and gain as
required and facilitates many alternative input functions as
required by the user.
