Digital Sensor Output Drivers from iC-Haus
December 4, 2011
The iC-DX and iC-DXC from iC-Haus GmbH, Bodenheim, Germany, are universal digital output drivers that enable compact sensors to be assembled with npn, pnp, push-pull, and IO Link-compatible output driver options. For an 8–30 V input voltage an integrated linear regulator provides the sensor electronics with a stable 5 V with a 10 mA carrying capacity. The iC-DX switching output supplies at least ±150 mA of drive current. The iC-DCX provides 200 mA min. drive current and is IO Link compatible. Both devices can be used as full interfaces with a sensor supply, particularly for inductive or capacitive proximity switches; ultrasonic switching sensors; light and fork light barriers; pressure sensors and switches; magnetic, capacitive, or optical limit switches; and gear wheel sensors.
