ETC AMS8176

HYBRID CIRCUIT FOR PROXIMITY DETECTORS
AMS8176 PNP Open Collector
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The AMS8176 is a hybrid circuit (2.9mm × 20mm) dedicated to tubular inductive proximity detectors, especially for 4mm to 6.5mm diameter hollow stud constructions.
The module consists of a proximity detector IC with a PNP output buffer for NC and NO applications. A part of the multiple protection functions and the status indicator (LED) are realised with
discrete elements. All these components are assembled by using hybrid thickfilm technology (ASICon-Hybrid) combined with surface mounted devices.
By adding a coil with a potcore and a distance resistor the AMS8176 works as a complete proximity
switch.

HYBRID CIRCUIT FOR PROXIMITY DETECTORS
AMS8176 PNP Open Collector
FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
The proximity detector AMS8176 is specially designed for mounting of ∅ 4mm tubes or M6. The
proximity detector consists of an oscillator, rectifier, comparator as well as a suitability for industry
protecting wiring with PNP open collector output. The detection distance is given by the resistor Rd.
This trimmable resistor has to be defined and to be mounted on the hybrid as chip-resistor by the
customer.
Hysteresis and TK is determined in thickfilm-resistors (Rh and Rk), by laser trimming of producer of
hysteresis > 10% and TK typical 0.2%/°C.
The bipolar coil has to be mounted on the capacitor Cosc and after applying the positive supply voltage to the hybrid the AMS8176 is able to work as a proximity detector.
The AMS8176 has an integrated short circuit protection whose scanning duty cycle is pre-adjusted.

MOUNTING RECOMMENDATIONS
If a protective cap is mounted on the coil, it should be as thin as possible, because its thickness
forms part of the operating distance.
The stud wall should not extend beyond the potcore.
The exact value of the operating distance with its tolerance is determined by:
• the values of the adjustment resistors (Rd, Rh, Rk)
• the oscillator coil
• the metal of the actuator and the material and shape of the housing
Handle with care to avoid electrostatic discharge.
OSCILLATOR RECOMMENDATIONS
Potcore SIFFERIT (Siemens) ∅ 3.3mm, K1 material
Coil N = 80 Thermofix S (Isolawerke) ∅ Cu 0.063mm
Coil L = 36.5µH embedded in NiCr steel tube
SOLDERING RECOMMENDATIONS
To solder the external connection pads it is necessary to preheat the substrate to 120...150°C and use
solder type Sn-Pb-Ag 62-36-2 (2% silver).
POTTING RECOMMENDATIONS
First cover the hybrid circuit with about 0.5mm of silicone coating, let it harden and with the parts
inserted in the housing, fill with epoxy resin.
There might be some problems of starting up cold if the quality coefficient of the coil is not sufficient.
