General Description

The CMPA102 comparator board provides two channels of comparator functions with a non-inverting open-drain protected output for each channel. Hysteresis is easily controlled with separate high and low threshold voltages. Each threshold may be set using the onboard potentiometers, or thresholds may be provided externally by the user. Input signal range includes the input-side supply rail and ground, without the need to use voltage dividers. The CMPA102 is suitable for use with supply voltages of anywhere from 3.3V to 24V. This robust design includes protected low-side output drivers that provide significant sink current capability. Reverse-polarity protection on inputs and outputs is also included.

This board includes terminal blocks to provide convenient access to the signals.

Applications

  • Monitoring sensor signals (fluid level, temperature, pressure, etc)
  • Low-side driver for small DC loads (motors, solenoids, bulbs, etc)
  • Simple closed-loop hysteretic control
  • Interface between equipment with different logic levels
  • Driving a load that could be subjected to fault conditions (e.g., overcurrent, short to supply)


A comparator is sometimes referred to as a "threshold detector" or "hysteretic controller."

Mounting Options

These products are available in two different mounting variants. Product numbers ending with -DIN come with DIN clips already installed and ready to snap onto 35mm or 32mm DIN rail. Product numbers ending with -FT have stick-on rubber feet installed on the bottom side, allowing for benchtop use or panel mounting. For panel mounting, we suggest 1/4" nylon standoffs under the mounting holes, and #6 screws.
