Learn how ADI’s latest digital output 3-axis MEMS vibration and shock sensor combines with a 10BASE-T1L MAC PHY for long reach Ethernet connectivity while also delivering power to the sensor on the same two wires.

4 mA to 20 mA Current Loop Solution

The LT8618 buck converter is a high efficiency and extremely compact power solution to power 4-20mA current loops. Because the input current is limited to 4mA, efficiency is critical in providing maximum load current to the sensor.

Power and Connect Remote Sensor Nodes

Harvesting small amounts of otherwise wasted heat using a thermoelectric device (uTEG) can enable wireless, battery free sensing. This demo highlights one such use case: ADI's uTEG powers a CbM node, periodically senses vibration and temperature (ADXL357, ADT7302), and performs an on-board FFT and transmits via BLE. The demo also highlights how I2C or SPI buses can be extended to large distances up to 1200m by using Serial Extenders (LTC4331 or LTC4332). We will have some remote sensors which can be either directly connected to processor card or through an extender with different cable lengths.
