Description

This CerTIfied Reference Design is a low cost system that implements a 12-bit loop-powered, or 2-wire, transmitter using the DAC7311, OPA317, and TL431B. The design includes a protection circuit that provides immunity to the IEC61000-4 test suite. The design also includes a circuit to rectify a reverse polarity supply voltage. The protection circuit and rectifier do not negatively affect the current output performance, resulting in <0.2% total unadjusted error (TUE).

This design is well suited for industrial automation and process conrol applications requiring a low-cost solution for 2-wire data transmission.

Features
  • 12-bit, loop-powered 4-20mA, transmitter
  • 10-36 V Loop Supply Voltage
  • <0.2% total unadjusted error (TUE)
  • <0.04% calibrated error
  • Low Cost Design
  • Verified to pass IEC61000-4-2/3/4/6 tests
  • Functional with reverse polarity supply connection
