0-1V to 4-20 mA Converter

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

Ensure 5/-5 dual supply for chip TL062 IC3. Gnd is common ps ground, let grounds radiate from ground plane in one side of PCB. R3-R8 is an attenuator that may need to be designed or modified. In output R23 is for protection from shorting of 5V supply, R23 can also go to an unregulated or external. supply upto 24V DC which is referenced to this cir

cuits gnd. More voltage more distance. Q2 is the current control device, and R22 50E is the shunt for taking a sample of current. 4-20mA in the output (provided suitable load is connected) means 200mV- 1000mV across 50E shunt. This is fed to close loop control system of IC3a inverting pin. If there is 1V at pin 3 and no current is flowing pin 2 is at 0V so output goes positive and drives Q2. this results in a flow of current till a 1V builds across shunt, if it exceeds then output of opamp falls This reduces drive to transistor and hence current reduces. That is the part of V to I conversion with open collector output. Now we need to convert 0-2 V to 0. 2 1. 0 V using IC3B. R14 is a representation of that 200mV offset set by R16 pot. the opamp IC3B adds both the input and this offset to get 200mV to 1000mV. for that the opamp IC3B is an analog computer, summer, subtracter. Try to now calculate the values for that. We aim to transmit more information by carrying articles.
