The XR3070-78X family of high performance RS-485/422 devices are designed for improved performance in noisy industrial environments and increased tolerance to system faults.
The analog bus pins can withstand direct shorts up to ±18V, and are protected against ESD events up to ±15kV. The differential high output driver delivers 10% higher SNR than standard RS-485/422 devices, affording additional noise margin or extended cable lengths.
The receivers include full fail-safe circuitry, guaranteeing a logic-high receiver output when the receiver inputs are open, shorted, or undriven. The receiver input impedance is at minimum 96kΩ (1/8 unit load), allowing up to 256 devices on the bus while preserving the full signal margin.
The drivers are protected by short circuit detection as well as thermal shutdown, and maintain high impedance in shutdown or when powered off. The XR3070-75X drivers are slew limited for reduced EMI and error-free communication over long or unterminated data cables.
The devices with DE and RE pins include hot swap circuitry to prevent false transitions on the bus during powerup or live insertion, and can enter a 1nA low current shutdown mode for extreme power savings.
The transceivers draw less than 600µA from a +3.3V supply, and typically only 300µA when idling with the receivers active.
