Summary This article shows the challenges an extended IoT system can pose in terms of EMC and thus also functionally. Potential leakage currents, inductively and capacitively coupled interference can disrupt data transmissions from wired sensors. To reduce these influences, decoupled, i.e., galvanically isolated

The subject of power supplies is potentially very broad and the application of resistors in power supplies is quite diverse. Here we will focus on power supply units (PSUs) designed for use in electronic appliances that nominally require fixed DC outputs ranging from just a few volts up to a few kV. Whether
