Maxim Micro PLC Platform makes Industry 4.0 at your fingertips

China, Beijing, October 8, 2014. Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) introduces a micro PLC platform that enables designers to implement Industry 4.0 designs with lower power, fewer components, and lower cost. The platform includes five reference designs that run as subsystems and are configured and tested via the computer's USB port.

A programmable logic controller (PLC) is the core module that controls and coordinates the entire plant's sensors and machines. The annual cost of factory maintenance and corresponding production losses is as high as $800 billion. To reduce this cost, Global Industry 4.0 development can make manufacturers' equipment smarter and more efficient. "Intelligent integration" (highly integrated to address a wide range of industrial issues) combined with unique process technology, Maxim's micro PLC platform can reduce the form factor by 10 times, power consumption by more than 50%, digital I / O output data processing speed Speed ​​up 70 times. The platform can quickly and effectively reduce industrial maintenance costs and extend uptime.

Maxim has developed a number of products that support the Industry 4.0 distributed model and work with the Micro PLC platform:

MAX11270: 24-bit, 10mW, sigma-delta ADC with built-in PGA for highest signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and lowest power consumption in its class

MAX17515: 5A, 2.4V to 5.5V input, full switch mode power supply, built-in inductors, reducing energy consumption and heat efficiency, up to 92% efficiency

MAX17552: 4V to 60V, 100mA, ultra-small, synchronous step-down DC-DC converter that complies with the IEC61131-2 PLC standard, effectively reducing heat consumption by more than 50%

Main advantage

Higher productivity: Digital I/O data processing speeds up to 70 times faster, increasing productivity

Higher efficiency: 50% lower power consumption, allowing fanless operation and higher I/O density

Compact form factor: 10 times smaller form factor, enabling PLC modules to be closer to the factory floor

High integration: Effectively reduce component count, improve reliability, and provide diagnostics to ensure that the production line is up and running 24/7


· Max De Integrated Business Management Executive Director Jeff DeAngelis said: “The micro PLC platform is the result of intelligent integration. We help our customers move to the Industry 4.0 process through professional system knowledge and simulation process integration capabilities. Now our customers can build smaller Faster, more efficient industrial controllers that take control of the future of Industry 4.0."

· Databeans Research Director Susie Inouye said: "The era of Industry 4.0 has arrived. Maxim recognizes the importance of this trend and is committed to improving system efficiency, productivity and reliability."
