High-voltage industrial digital input (DI) and digital output (DO) signals, also called binary signals, are control signals that range in magnitude from 0 to 24V. Digital I/O signals are used in industrial control equipment to communicate on/off status between remote devices and controllers in relatively noisy industrial environments.
Our industrial digital I/O ICs perform voltage level translation while providing circuit protection. Many also perform serialization to allow economical operation through digital signal isolators.
Industrial digital input (DI) ICs provide the interface between high-voltage signals (from binary sensors) and lower voltages found in industrial control equipment such as PLCs. Our IEC61131-2-compliant digital input interface devices offer the smallest solution size, the lowest power dissipation, and the most robust operation with 1kV of surge protection and integrated diagnostics. Our parasitically powered digital input IC reduces power dissipation by up to 60 percent and does not require a discrete isolated power supply.
Industrial digital output (DO) ICs provide high-speed switching of high-voltage output signals for use in industrial control applications. Our digital output drivers feature very low on-resistance to reduce power dissipation and increase channel density, integrated surge protection, diagnostics, and safe demagnetization to safely handle inductive loads. For maximum flexibility, they can be configured in either serial (SPI) or parallel modes with outputs as either high-side switches or push-pull drivers.
Peripheral module boards (PMBs) provide an easy way to evaluate our digital IO devices.
