ST offers a series of intelligent power switches (IPS) for high-side and low-side configurations. These devices integrate the control section (logic interface, drivers, diagnostic and protection features) and the power stage on the same chip, with benefits in terms of compactness, increased system reliability and cost effectiveness.
ST‘s IPS can be used in combination with any industrial load, resistive, inductive or capacitive.
Fast-starting 60 V intelligent power switches with protections and diagnostics
With power-on delay time of less than 60µs, the IPS160HF and IPS161HF single-channel high-side switches satisfy standardized requirements for interface types C and D in Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Class 3 applications.
With a supply voltage range up to 60 V, these intelligent power switches are capable of safely driving complex (resistive, capacitive and inductive) loads with one side connected to ground such as valves, relays and lamps in factory automation or process control applications.
