LM335 - Precision Temperature Sensor

The LM135, LM235, LM335 are precision temperature sensors which can be easily calibrated. They operate as a 2-terminal Zener and the breakdown voltage is directly proportional to the absolute temperature at 10mV/°K.

LM335 - Precision Temperature Sensor

Precautions should be taken to ensure good sensing accuracy. As in the case of all temperatures sensors, self-heating can decrease accuracy. The LM135, LM235, and LM335 should operate with a low current but sufficient to drive the sensor and its calibration circuit to their maximum operating temperature.

LM335 - Precision Temperature Sensor

Above data from STMicro - Circuit shows a design using LM335 for Temperature Control.

LM335 Cold Junction Compensation

Temperature Sensors like Thermocouples need cold junction compensation as a part of front end signal conditioning, this is done at the terminal block where the Thermocouple wires are terminated. This design has to be more accurate and broad, if the design we make has to work well in both Tropical and Temperate Climate Zones.

Thermocouple Temperature using DPM or DMM

Temperature measurement and control uses the Thermocouple and the Seebeck Effect for measurement. The most common is J Type as it is affordable. K is better and works well even at higher temperatures too.

4-20mA Conditioning - XTR101 TI BB

These are Burr Brown Devices from TI. The BB Chips are excellent devices and High Precision, but a bit more expensive. These can be used when customer demands a Higher Quality and Precision. These are good for High Reliability Industrial Instrumentation. - delabs

4-20mA Conditioning - XTR101 TI BB

The XTR101 is a microcircuit, 4-20mA, two-wire transmitter containing a high accuracy instrumentation amplifier (IA), a voltage-controlled output current source, and dual-matched precision current reference.

4-20mA Conditioning - XTR101 TI BB

The two-wire transmitter allows signal and power to be supplied on a single wire pair by modulating the power-supply current with the input signal source. The transmitter is immune to voltage drops from long runs and noise from motors, relays, actuators, switches, transformers, and industrial equipment.

NCP1247 Controller - Fixed Frequency, Current Mode, for Flyback Converters

The NCP1247 is a new fixed−frequency current−mode controller featuring the Dynamic Self−Supply. This function greatly simplifies the design of the auxiliary supply and the VCC capacitor by activating the internal startup current source to supply the controller during start−up, transients, latch, stand−by etc.

NCP1247 Controller

This device contains a special HV detector which detect the application unplug from the AC input line and triggers the X2 discharge current. This HV structure allows the brown−out detection as well.

ADS7816 - 12-Bit High Speed Sampling AD

The ADS7816 is a 12-bit, 200kHz sampling analog to- digital converter. It features low power operation with automatic power down, a synchronous serial interface, and a differential input. The reference voltage can be varied from 100mV to 5V, with a corresponding resolution from 24mV to 1.22mV. - From TI Applications

ADS7816  - 12-Bit High Speed A/D Converter

Low power, automatic power down, and small size make the ADS7816 ideal for battery operated systems or for systems where a large number of signals must be acquired simultaneously. It is also ideal for remote and/or isolated data acquisition.

ADS7816 - 12-Bit High Speed Sampling AD

12-Bit High Speed Micro Power Sampling Analog-to-Digital converter

The ADS7816 is a classic successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital (A/D) converter. The architecture is based on capacitive redistribution which inherently includes a sample/hold function.

The converter is fabricated on a 0.6µ CMOS process. The architecture and process allow the ADS7816 to acquire and convert an analog signal at up to 200,000 conversions per second while consuming very little power
