Differential Pulse Train Output (PTO) Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Module Reference Design
The differential pulse-train output (PTO) reference design illustrates the design of a differential high-speed digital output module using a RS-485 driver powered from the PLC backplane using isolated fly-buck power converter. The reference design is mainly used in positioning and motion control systems to allow simple distant high-speed motor control in noisy environments.
- 4 high-speed differential digital output channels
- 1-MHz pulse frequency
- 25-mA maximum load current per channel for 100-Ω load
- 750-mW total power consumption from backplane isolated power stage (150 mA)
- Parallel control for simple MCU interface
- Beaglebone Black cape form factor for easy evaluation using TIDEP0027
A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
