This high EMC immunity reference design demonstrates a RS-485 transceiver to use on both the drive and within encoders such as: EnDat 2.2, BiSS, Tamagawa, etc. EMC immunity, particularly immunity against inverter switching noise, is important for position encoder feedback systems within industrial drives. This design supports a wide input voltage range (used as output voltage to the encoder) from 5 to 15V (12V nom) in order to meet the wide supply range of encoders.
The power supply of this design includes protection against overvoltage and short circuit according to the selected encoder’s voltage range to prevent damage during a cable short.
The BoosterPack plug-in module form factor with connector compatible to TI LaunchPad development kit is included for easy evaluation of EnDat, BiSS, and other systems with the C2000 MCU. This reference design has been tested up to 100-m cable length with EnDat 2.2 encoders.
