U3V50F12 Typical Application


This may be a naive question, but the U3V50F12 module has two GND ports (on on the input side and one on the output side). Are these meant to be isolated ground or can/should they be connected to the same GND plane? Is there a schematic of a typical application floating around?

Thank you.



Those GND pins are connected together on the board and are intended to be part of a common ground for the system they are a part of. We provide two ground connections on this board just to make it more convenient to connect to your source and load.



Ah yes, of course! For my implementation I am board mounting the module using the headers, so I was wondering why there would be a ground on each port; however, given the screw terminal configuration this does make sense.

Thanks for clarifying.
