28V: Operating voltage (nom.), 2 mA current draw (max.) - VSD1, 4 mA current draw (max.) - VSD2.
GND: Continuous Ground required.
SENSE: Detects DC voltage. Voltage sensing includes a hysteresis band to prevent signal chatter.
OUTPUT Z: Open-drain output is Ground when active and High Impedance when not active. Output can be specified to activate when SENSE voltage is above or below the specified voltage level. VSD1 output load capacity is 2.0 A (Resistive), and VSD2 is 0.5 A (Resistive).
The Voltage Sensor is available in two options based on the specified voltage setpoint.
Voltage Sensor 1 (VSD1): Monitors overvoltage and undervoltage at defined setpoints from +1 to +48 VDC. When combined with a NEXSYS Electronic Latch, the Voltage Sensor can create a wide hysteresis solution with separate pull-in and drop-out levels.
Voltage Sensor 2 (VSD2): Monitors overvoltage and undervoltage conditions at defined setpoints from +50 mVDC to +1 VDC. When combined with an external shunt resistor (not included), the VSD2 can detect undercurrent or overcurrent conditions by measuring the voltage drop across the external resistor versus unit Ground.
To help system designers understand the potential of NEXSYS Component Technology, we have assembled a collection of Application Notes. The links below show example applications that utilize the Voltage Sensor component.
