16-Bit Isolated Industrial Voltage and Current Output DAC with Isolated DC-to-DC Supplies (CN0233)
The circuit in Figure 1 provides 16-bit fully isolated ±10 V and 4 mA-to-20 mA outputs suitable for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and distributed control systems (DCSs).
The circuit uses digital isolation, as well as PWM-controlled power regulation circuitry along with associated feedback isolation. External transformers are used to transfer power across the isolation barrier, and the entire circuit operates on a single +5 V supply located on the primary side. This solution is superior to isolated power modules, which are often bulky and may provide poor output regulation.
Digital isolators are superior to opto-isolators especially when multichannel isolation is needed. The integrated design isolates the circuit from the local system controller to protect against ground loops and also to ensure robustness against external events often encountered in harsh industrial environments.
