In this episode of PSDtv Infineon demonstrates their latest solution for industrial control at embedded world 2014 for Power Systems Design. Infineon's ISOFACE ISO1I81xT product family (ISO1I811T, ISO1I813T) of galvanically isolated 8-channel digital input ICs samples input data from digital sensors and switches. The digital input ICs can be directly connected to digital inputs like sensors or switches and the micro-controller or bus-ASIC. Robust galvanic isolation is integrated. Up to 8 inputs according to IEC61131-2 (Type 1/2/3) can be connected per IC. The precise characteristic of the current sink of the IC’s inputs reduces the power dissipation per channel by a factor of up to 2.5-times compared to solutions using resistors and opto-couplers.
