Electrometer amplifier with overload protection


Posted on Apr 4, 2012

The preamplifier is protected from excessive input signals of either polarity by the 2N5909 junction field-effect transistor. A nulling circuit makes it possible to set the preamplifier output voltage to zero at a fixed low level (up to + 10~8A) of the input current. (This level is called the standing current and corresponds to the zero-signal level of the instrumentation.) The opposing (offset) current is generated in the 109 feedback resistor to buck the standing current.

Different current ranges are reached by feeding the preamplifier output to low and high gain amplifier chains. To reduce noise, each chain includes a 1.5 Hz corner active filter.
