|− GC-01 is a robust line driver for industrial 5V and 24V Applications with four complementary output channels.
− For signal lines with a characteristic impedance of 30 to 140 Ω the integrated line
adapter, optimized to 75 Ω, minimizes ringing effects which arise when there is no line termination.
− At a supply of 24 V the push-pull driver stages typically provide 200 mA to discharge the line and also have a
low saturation voltage (of typically 200 mV with a 40 mA low-side load). The outputs are current limited and
short-circuit-proof, shutting down with excessive temperature.
− For bus applications the driver stages can be switched to high impedance by a high at input NEN.
− The driver stage inputs have a Schmitt trigger characteristic and are compatible with CMOS and TTL levels.
− For test purposes the temperature monitor can be deactivated by applying a voltage of greater than 12
V to input NEN.
− GC-01 contains internal ESD protection circuitry.
