Maxim Integrated's "Corona" reference design introduces a game-changing architecture for industrial PLC digital-input modules by reducing the isolated channel count.
SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Designers now have a way to reduce power, system cost, and size for programmable logic controller (PLC) digital-input subsystems, with the Corona (MAXREFDES12#) reference design by Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM). This design reduces isolated channels and leverages analog integration for industrial control and automation applications.
One method of reducing the size of I/O solutions in PLCs is to reduce the number of digital channels that need to be isolated. Integrating three Maxim products including a transformer driver, the Corona design reduces isolated channels and eliminates the need for power-hungry optocouplers and discrete parts. These savings reduce power by 16%, solution size by 38%, and cost by 23%. Maxim's devices used in Corona are designed specifically for harsh industrial environments with operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +125°C, so they are ideal for use in PLCs and other automation applications.
