Current Flowing @ 1.3V

Current Flowing @ 1.3V

In this final image I turned up the DC voltage to 1.3V and we can now see the diodes beginning to allow current to flow. The Fluke is measuring 0.03A or three hundredths of an amp at 1.3V across the diodes.

This GI is doing what it should and will block dangerous DC galvanic current.

Hope this helps!!
