Mouser Now Shipping Maxim’s Ultra Low-Power MAX12900 Sensor Transmitter for 4–20mA Loop Industrial Automation

 

March 27, 2018Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the MAX12900 sensor transmitter analog front end (AFE) from Maxim Integrated. With ultra-low power consumption of just 170 µA (typical) and a 5 mm × 5 mm footprint, the highly integrated sensor transmitter reduces space by up to 20 percent and power up to 50 percent compared to other 4 – 20 mA loop solutions.

 

The Maxim MAX12900 sensor transmitter, available from Mouser Electronics, enables increased system accuracy with 10 ppm per degree Celsius voltage reference and 0.01 percent maximum error. The ultra-low power transmitter converts PWM data from a microcontroller into current over a 4 – 20 mA loop, supporting two-, three- and four-wire configurations.

 

The MAX12900 integrates ten building blocks to help engineers optimize functionality and performance: a low-dropout (LDO) regulator; two conditioner circuits for PWM inputs; two low-power, low-drift general-purpose operational amplifiers; a wide-bandwidth, zero-offset drift operational amplifier; two diagnostic comparators; power-up sequencer; and a low-drift voltage reference.

 

The MAX12900 sensor transmitter is supported by the MAX12900 evaluation kit, which includes an evaluation board and graphic user interface to enable USB communication between the target device and a PC. The transmitter is ideal for smart sensors and remote instrumentation in industrial automation and process control.
