Analog Devices and Bourns Introduce Industry’s First Complete Evaluation Board with Certified RS-485 Electro-magnetic Protection

Analog Devices and Bourns have recently introduced the industry's first certified RS-485 evaluation board for protecting against EMC (electro-magnetic compatibility) events in industrial and instrumentation equipment. Available through both companies, the EVAL-CN0313-SDPZ board incorporates ADI's ADM3485E, 3.3-V RS-485 transceiver and various circuit protection devices from Bourns and meets IEC61000-4-2/4/5 ESD (electro-static discharge), EFT (electronically-fast transients), and power-surge specifications. The board is offered as part of ADI's Circuits from the Lab™ reference circuits library and includes circuit notes, test data and results to help engineers reduce design risk in applications such as motor controls, grid tied inverters, and programmable-logic controllers. The board is available from all authorised distributors of ADI and select authorised distributors of Bourns.
