Dual IO-Link master transceiver for Industry 4.0

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.

According to the company, the MAX14819 features low on-resistance, low supply current, and optimised current limiter architecture for lower power consumption.

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.

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 is said to enable scalable and cost-effective architecture while enabling fast cycle times of up to 400µs and reducing latency.

Also operational with NPN type sensors, the MAX14819 is available in a 48-pin 7 x 7mm TQFN package and operates over temperatures ranging from -40 to 125°C. Applications include IO-Link master systems and IO-Link gateways.
