The company plans to run a custom beer mug production line at Electronica using the demonstration system.

Maxim said that its micro-PLC is about one tenth the size of conventional PLCs and therefore supports the trend towards distributed intelligence in factory automation.

Chips and power supply modules developed that fit with the micro-PLC platform include the Max17515 and the Max17552.

The Max17515 is a step-down power module that operates from a 2.4 to 5.5V input supply voltage and supports output currents up to 5A. The device includes switch-mode power-supply controller, dual n-channel MOSFET power switches, a fully shielded inductor, as well as compensation components. The device supports 0.75V to 3.6V programmable output voltage. The device operates at a fixed 1MHz

The Max17552 is a 4V to 60V, 100mA synchronous step-down DC-DC converter, compliant to the IEC61131-2 PLC standard.

“The micro-PLC platform is the result of smart integration. We used our system knowledge and analog process integration capabilities to move customers into Industry 4.0,” said Jeff DeAngelis, executive director of business management at Maxim Integrated Products, in a statement.
