2.5 Gbit/s Network isolator for the isolation of medical equipment

Safety: IEC 60601-1:2005/AMD1:2012/AMD2:2020 (Edition 3.2 Medical electrical equipment)
EMV: EN 60601-1-2:2015  (IEC 60601-1-2:2014) (Medical electrical equipment)

The new MI 2005 network isolator is now also designed for connecting current WLAN routers with transmission rates of up to 2.5 GBit/s. The key advantage is that it can be operated with existing network cabling (Cat6). In accordance with the requirements of DIN EN 60601-1 (edition 3.2), it has two independent protective measures (2 MOPP) to the patient and is therefore ideally suited for the standard-compliant galvanic isolation of Ethernet-based signal interfaces within the patient environment. The new MI 2005 also has ESD and lightning protection properties. It thus protects connected devices and their users from overvoltages due to lightning, electrostatic discharges, etc.

Translated with (free version)

The MI 2005 network isolator can be used as an accessory or component of a medical-electrical device or system.This world - wide established network isolator offers a flexible and easy option for immediately isolating of medical equipment. In less than 5 seconds, patients, users and equipment are protected from dangerous leakage currents flowing via the data network. 

Under stress conditions the MI 2005 isolator was tested up to a  isolation stength of 5 kV AC (60 Sec.). Furthermore, 8 kV contact discharge and 16 kV air discharge are easily fulfiled.


  • easy handling - no software installation required
  • compact, sleek design and suitable for universal use
  • protects patients, users and equipment from dangerous leakage currents in less than 5 seconds
  • light and resistant housing - can be plugged into any system with a network connection
  • low-cost purchasing and efficient operation - no independent power supply required

Scopes of Application for network isolators


In medicine: Network isolators protect patients and medical devices from excessive leakage currents that may flow through the data network. Every device connected to the network represents a risk. This data network connection is ultimately also a risk for patients. The MI 2005 Ethernet Isolator protects patients, equipment and users from dangerous leakage currents that can appear unexpectedly at any time.
Measuring and monitoring: Network isolators protect sensitive measuring and monitoring devices in electrical testing laboratories, which are connected through an Ethernet network to a control centre, and need to be protected from transients and potential differences.
Server systems: In order to avoid failures or potential equalization currents, network isolators protect server systems which are connected over long distances via Ethernet cabling.
Audio applications: The MI 2005 reduce the transmission of low frequency alternating currents (AC hum) over the network connection.



The Network Isolator MI 2005 can easaly be plugged into an existing network cabling by simply inserting. The passive electronic components do not require a separate power supply and behave completely transparently on the data network. Therefore, no installation of drivers or additional software is required.

Conformity and Certificates

The MI 2005 network isolators fulfill the high requirements of current medical standards as per IEC 60601-1 (Edition 3.2) and IEC 60601-1-2. For this reason, these galvanic network isolators are ideally suited to use in medical sectors. The MI 1005 network isolators are listed for their consistent quality by UL in accordance with applicable UL standards and requirements.
