Dual IO-Link Master Transceiver Ensures Cuts Power By 50%

Designers of Industry 4.0 applications can now achieve robust communications and reduce power dissipation by 50% with the MAX14819 dual-channel, IO-Link master transceiver from Maxim Integrated Products. Today's fanless programmable logic controller (PLC) and IO-Link gateway systems must dissipate large amounts of power depending on IO configuration (IO-Link, digital input/output, analog input/output). As these PLCs evolve into new Industrial 4.0 smart factories, special attention must be considered to achieve smarter, faster, and lower power solutions while also meeting IO-Link and standard IO (SIO) compliance.

 

Maxim continues to provide a portfolio of advanced factory automation solutions that creates pathways toward achieving Industry 4.0. The unique architecture of the MAX14819 dissipates 50% less heat compared to other IO-Link Master solutions and is fully compatible in all modes for IO-Link and SIO compliance. Robust L+ supply controllers with settable current limiting and reverse voltage/current protection help ensure robust communications with the lowest power consumption. With just one microcontroller, the integrated framer/universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter (UART) enables the most scalable and cost-effective architecture while enabling the industry's fastest cycle times (up to 400 microseconds) and reducing latency. The MAX14819 is available in a 48-pin (7mm x 7mm) TQFN package and operates over the -40°C to +125°C temperature range. Applications include IO-Link master systems and IO-Link gateways.

Infosys positioned as a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for IT Services for Communications Service Providers, Worldwide 2020

The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluated 12 vendors and Infosys was recognized for its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Infosys leverages its global partner ecosystem, CSP-dedicated studio, design tools, and 5G Living Labs to boost service delivery. Innovative solutions such as the ‘Infosys Cortex2’ are driving business value for CSPs.

 

Key Advantages

  • Low Power Dissipation: Low on-resistance, low supply current, and optimized current limiter architecture for significantly lower power consumption
  • High Performance: Integrated internal framer/UART enables the most flexible architecture while still achieving the fastest cycle times to achieve the lowest bill of materials (BOM) cost by eliminating the UART dependency from the microcontroller
  • Robust: 65V absolute maximum ratings and reverse polarity protection help to meet full compliance with IO-Link (1.1.2) and SIO (IEC61131-2, IEC61131-9) modes; also operates with NPN type sensors

 

The MAX14819 is available for $6.03 (1000-up, FOB USA) and an evaluation kit is available for $99: MAX14819EVKIT. For more info, visit https://www.maximintegrated.com
