Isolator Unit

The Isolator Unit (AC244005) for the MPLAB® REAL ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator, also known as an opto-isolator, is a useful accessory to the MPLAB REAL ICE in-circuit emulator system. The isolator enables connectivity for AC line and high voltage applications not referenced to ground. Typically, these are consumer applications such as light dimmers, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, and other types of motor-based systems where the MCU uses a non-isolated power supply.
