  • Wiring Guide for Dual Output Vibration and Temperature Sensors
    ). Type 1: The data-collector powered dual output sensor (Wilcoxon model 786T) is useful for acquiring data with any one of the many portable analyzers for collecting predictive data for vibration spectrum analysis. The temperature sensor is powered through the accelerometer powering circuit
  • To Float or Not to Float? Analysis of a floating vs. grounded output
    Grounding electrical circuits is necessary for safety in the event that a fault occurs within the system. However, grounded systems can present their own set of problems. Small differences in potential within a grounding system can cause ground loops and these loops can have adverse effects ranging
  • Design of Fundamental Phototransistor Circuits
    The common-emitter amplifier circuit (Fig. 1) generates an output which transitions from a high state to a low state when light in the near-infrared range is detected by the phototransistor. The wavelength range for light in the near-infrared region is about 700 nanometers (nm) to 1100 nm
  • Inverter Output AC Filter Capacitor for Today's Demanding Applications
    Many of today's inverter circuits require highly reliable and rugged capacitors to filter out the rich harmonic content of their AC output waveforms. The current of the harmonics at the output of inverter circuits is often greater than the current at the fundamental frequency. Consequently
  • Basic Output Generator Excitation and Demodulation Requirements for USD Gyroscopes
    pickoff operation will be presented. The discussions and circuit examples provided in this note are intended to introduce system designers and engineers to the minimum basic requirements for gyroscope pickoff excitation and demodulation. The US Dynamics miniature gyroscope output generator, also
  • Multiple PWM Output Soft-Start Controller For Switching Power Supplies
    . A common requirement is that one voltage must rise and stabilize before another voltage. The circuit described in this document operates by using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to slowly increase the amount of time the power supply is allowed to operate. The circuit will first increase the duty cycle
  • Temperature Measurement Circuits for Embedded Applications
    Temperature Detectors (RTDs), thermistors and silicon integrated circuit temperature sensors. The attributes of each temperature sensor and the advantages of analog, frequency, ramp rate, duty cycle, serial and logic output solutions will be discussed. An analog output thermocouple circuit
  • Oscillator Circuits For RTD Temperature Sensors
    This application note shows how to design a temperature sensor oscillator circuit using Microchip's low-cost MCP6001 operational amplifier (op amp) and the MCP6541 comparator. Oscillator circuits can be used to provide an accurate temperature measurement with a Resistive Temperature Detector (RTD
