Intelligent power switch built for industrial automation

The STMicroelectronics IPS4260L quad low-side intelligent power switch boosts efficiency and reliability in industrial automation, with four 260mΩTYP RDS(ON) power switches and protection features in a space-efficient, thermally enhanced package. The IC can manage up to 2.4A@TAMB=85°C (0.6A per channel or 2.4A on single channel) with the possibility to set current limitation threshold by external resistor and to parallelize the channel.

The very low rise and fall time (tr, tf < 1μs) allows high switching frequency (up to 250kHz) and makes it ideal for servo drives, motor controls, industrial-PC peripherals, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and general low-side switching of loads connected to the positive supply, the IPS4260L provides rich diagnostics for Smart Industry / Industry 4.0 smart-manufacturing applications.

The diagnostic features include open-load detection that operates while outputs are in the off state, which prevents hazards due to failures such as wire breaks.
