Intersil, a subsidiary of Renesas Electronics, has announced two new high-speed, isolated RS-485 differential bus transceivers that provide 40 Mbps bidirectional data communication for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) networks. The ISL32741E offers 1,000 VRMS working voltage and 6 kV of reinforced isolation, more than 2x higher than competitive solutions. The higher working voltage and reinforced isolation is required for today’s most rigorous medical and high-speed motor control applications. The ISL32740E with 2.5kV of isolation and 600VRMS working voltage comes in a small package, enabling high channel density for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in factory automation applications.
The ISL3274xE transceivers provide additional advantages over other isolation technologies, including ultra-low radiated emission and EMI susceptibility, support for up to 160 devices on the bus, and an extended 125°C temperature range. These devices leverage giant magneto-resistance (GMR) technology that provides galvanic isolation to keep the communication bus free from common-mode noise generated in electrically noisy factory and building automation environments. The ISL32740E and ISL32741E 40 Mbps RS-485 transceivers are available now with prices ranging from $3.79 to $4.79 depending on package type and temperature range. Evaluation boards are available for $99.

Available in two models with full-scale ranges of ±100 g (ADXL1001) and ±50 g (ADXL1002).
Typical noise density for the ADXL1002 is 25 μg/√Hz, with a sensitivity of 40 mV/g, and 30 μg/√Hz for ADXL1001 with sensitivity 20 mV/g.
Operate on single voltage supply from 3. to 5.25 V
Over range indicator
Rated for operation over a –40°C to 125°C temperature range.
The accelerometers cost $29.61 each in 1,000-unit quantities.

The RIO-2010 is a web-based remote I/O control module. The Ethernet-ready module is equipped with eight relays, 16 photo-isolated digital inputs, and a 1-Wire interface for digital temperature sensor connection. The RIO-2010’s built-in web server enables you to access the I/O and use a standard web browser to remotely control the RIO-2010’s relay.
The RIO-2010 can be easily integrated into supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial automation systems using the standard Modbus TCP protocol. The I/O module also comes with RS-485 serial interface for applications requiring Modbus RTU/ASCII. Its built-in web server enables you to use standard web-editing tools and Ajax dynamic page technology to customize your webpage.
The MP220 is an industrial high-current switch. It features a single-pole, double-break electrical circuit that enables it to double break two independent electrical circuits.
The MP220 switch utilizes a fast snap action mechanism to transition from break-to-make position. The switch in its standard version is currently IP67 sealed. An improved sealing for IP68 applications with a strengthened cable exit is also available.
The MP220 is available in standard microswitch-size housing with a range of possible actuators and a four-wire potted cable. The switch is EN61058-certified for 250 VAC/10 A with a –40°C-to-130°C operating temperature range.
