JDM Distribution - DVI Galvanic Isolator




Isolate the source and display DVI connection used in an imaging system to ensure safety and a reliable operation room

The Gefen DVI Galvanic Isolator is used in mission-critical applications where galvanic isolation between the connected DVI (source and display) is required to eliminate the potential for ground loops and provide decoupling between various devices used in a High-Definition video system. This is a safety requirement in applications such as medical imaging systems where certain components of the system (such as endoscopy cameras) come in direct contact with the patient and the medical operator.

How It Works


Using the included DVI cable, connect the imaging source, such as a camera, to the DVI input of the DVI Galvanic Isolator. Connect the output of the DVI Galvanic Isolator to the next DVI component in the system such as a video scaler or a high resolution display. Connect the supplied 5V DC power supply to the locking connector on the DVI Galvanic Isolator and to an available electrical outlet. Power up the systems after all the cables and power connections are made.
