Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON) pioneered the development of an open standards control network platform. With more than 100 million echelon powered devices installed worldwide, the company helps its customers easily and safely migrate their existing control systems to the most advanced platforms while bringing new devices and applications integrated into a growing global Industrial network. Echelon helps customers reduce operating costs, increase satisfaction and safety, increase revenue and execute better in mature and emerging markets.
Devices developed for industrial applications usually have a 4-20mA output interface. In the past there was no DAC module microcontroller system, the need to add a master DAC to achieve analog control, or use the PWM to simulate the DA, but also brought Temperature drift and long-term stability issues. In STM32-centric devices, using its own DAC can be very convenient to achieve 4-20mA output interface, with high precision, good stability, small drift and easy programming.
The MAX14883E has ±60V fault protection and polarity options to ensure reliable communications and reduce installation errors. The 83E has ±60V fault protection, polarity options, reliable communications, and reduced installation errors.
