Avago adds 30V line drivers for industrial automation apps

Avago Technologies has announced 3 new high-voltage line drivers, AEIC-7272, AEIC-7273 and AEIC-2631 for the industrial automation provides the additional supply voltage up to 30V. Avago says with integrated current limiting and thermal shutdown features, the line drivers protect against shorts to assure highly-reliable operation in harsh environments for industrial encoder and sensor interfaces, industrial programmable logic controllers and servo drive applications.

The new line drivers are designed to meet industrial standards for encoder applications and offers operating temperature range from -55° to 125° C for the AEIC-7272 and AEIC-7273 devices and -40° to 125°C for the AEIC-2631 device.

"These new high-performance line drivers improve drivability and assurance of power supply, with the durability required for rigorous industrial environments," said Hassan Hussain, general manager of the Motion Control Products Division at Avago. "Avago can now serve as a one-stop shop for complete encoder solutions, providing customers the best possible value by offering the line drivers with our market-leading portfolio of motion control encoders and decoders for industrial automation applications."

The AEIC-2631 device operates in a wide supply voltage range of 4.75V to 30V and features Tri-State outputs. The AEIC-7272 device features Tri-State outputs and the AEIC-7273 device features NPN Open-Collector outputs, and each operates from 3.5V to 30V. The line drivers' thermal shutdown feature is accomplished by monitoring junction temperature and comparing this to a band gap reference on-chip.

Additional AEIC-7272, AEIC-7273 and AEIC-2631 Line Driver Features
-- Operation to 800 KHz
-- CMOS and TTL compatible inputs
-- Support RS-422A
-- Lead-free, 16-pin SOIC package

Availability: Now
Price: The Avago AEIC-7272, AEIC-7273 and AEIC-2631 line drivers are priced starting at $2.00 each in 9600 piece quantities.
