Discrete Output, 4-Channel, High Current (to 2 A)

The DT3 provides four isolated, high current & voltage (up to 2 A, 65 VDC) discrete output switching channels.

Arranged and power sourced in channel pairs, the individual module channel(s) can control and switch load outputs for either single or dual power supply applications. With a single source power supply (VCC & GND), the channel(s) can be connected to a load and provide either hi-side (current source) or lo-side (current sink) discrete load current switching. With dual power supply sources (VCC & VSS), the channel(s) can be connected to a load to provide push-pull discrete load current switching (dual source current switching from both a positive and negative power supply).

  • ID/Type: High-current, individual, discrete isolated current switches; DT3: 4-Channel (2-channels are paired and share VCC/VSS power supply source inputs)
  • Voltage Range:: ±5 to ±35 VDC / Channel max. (external supplied dual source VCC & VSS); 5 to 65 VDC / Channel max. (external supplied single source VCC & GND); Note: Channel pair power input sources are/must be referenced to the channel pair ISO_GND
  • Overvoltage Surge Protection: 75 VDC max. (clamped)
  • Output Mode Formats (programmable per channel): Mode 0: Standard mode. User has two registers: “Drive Output H/L/T” and “Output Format”. Mode 1: PWM mode. PWM Output command; PWM Continuous or Burst modes (n-times)
  • Channel Off (tristate): High-Z (>2 MΩ)
  • Output Current: 2 A per channel, maximum
  • Output Impedance: <0.1 Ω
  • System Protection: All output(s) are set to “OFF” (at Power-ON and reset). No voltage transients on power-on or power-off.
  • Load & Channel Protection: Short circuit protected. Channel shuts “off” and a flag is set when current exceeds 10% maximum current rating > 50ms. Channel over-current reset by control/status register command.
  • Switching Frequency: Up to 350 kHz maximum (for PWM mode).
  • +VCC & -VSS Voltage Measurement: User can read source voltage(s). Voltage: LSB = 100 mV; Accuracy: ±1V
  • Output Voltage Measurement: User can read voltage of each channel. Voltage: LSB = 100 mV; Accuracy: ±300 mV
  • Output Current Measurement: User can read current of each channel. Current: LSB = 1 mA; Accuracy: ±20 mA
  • Isolation: Module power source (ISO-GND) and I/O to system ground is ≥500 VDC
  • Power: 5 VDC / 105 mA (max) (does not include source powered load)
  • Weight: 1.5 oz. (42 g)
  • PWM Output Mode Operation: Individual Output Mode: PWM Continuous or PWM Burst (n-times)
