Caputron Releases New Linear Current Isolator

Caputron – June 5, 2017

Responding to the lack of a high bandwidth, low DC leakage and precise isolator, Caputron has recently designed and released the state-of-the-art Linear Current Isolator Model 1106S. In designing our product we kept two commonly used devices (AM-Systems 2200 and World Precision Instruments A395) in mind. Through extensive testing of the currnetly available devices and in conjuction with the feedback feedback of our partner universities, our engineers have developed an isolator that provides users with a simple interface, intlelligent feedback and unparalled performance. For more information on the isolator, our engineer can be contacted at Adam@caputron.com or 646-926-3646.
