High Power Industrial Controller

Design Note #34

High Power Industrial Controller

Switching high power electrical signals requires in-depth knowledge of isolation, cross talk, and safety techniques. High power electrical signals can generate large voltage or current pulse, when switched. Isolation between high power signals and low power controls is often mandated by regulatory agencies. Implementation of cost effective, manufacturable high power switching designs necessitates careful component selection, circuit board routing techniques and noise reduction design approaches. OTEC has successfully designed numerous high power industrial controllers.

“Unmatched in its class,” says lead designer Dean Craig of OTEC. “The Motorola MC68HCS12 gives us every feature we could want: large flash memory storage space, built-in static RAM, generous Input/Output pinning, background debug capability, integrated ADC, and timers at a great price!”
