The universal digital output driver iC-DX/DXC from iC-Haus enables compact sensors to be assembled with NPN, PNP, push-pull, and IO link-compatible output driver options. From an input voltage of 8 to 30 V an integrated linear regulator provides the sensor electronics with a stable +5 V voltage with a 10 mA carrying capacity. The iC-DX switching output supplies at least +/-150 mA of drive current. At 200 mA minimum drive current iC-DXC is also IO link-compatible, as it has a feedback channel with a polarity monitor for wake-up detection. The integrated temperature monitor protects both devices against overtemperature and shuts down the output driver at +150°C. An integrated reverse polarity protection circuit safeguards the sensor against incorrect wiring of the supply voltage.
