Maxim Integrated introduces MAXREFDES79# IO-Link master

April 14, 2015 - Maxim Integrated introduces MAXREFDES79# IO-Link master with four ports and a complete software stack in an easy-to-use development platform.

It reduces the cost and time required to develop and evaluate both IO-Link master and IO-Link sensor systems, and allows up to four sensors to be tested at one time. As an IO-Link compliant system, MAXREFDES79# works with any IO-Link sensor on the market today.

The system has four ports, one for each IO-Link master. It integrates power supply products, uses COM 3 communication, comes with an adapter, and is enabled with a microUSB data connection.

Advantages

  • Flexible and highly integrated: 4-port master with software stack can test any four IO-Link sensors
  • Faster time to market: easy to plug in and quickly evaluate external sensors
  • Affordable: significantly reduces both IO-Link master and sensor development time

The MAXREFDES79# board with software stack is available for $500. The initial unit costs $415 at Maxim's website and select franchised distributors. Hardware and firmware design files, as well as test data, are provided free and available online.

An unlimited software license is available for $85 from TEConcept.
