Test batteries without a voltmeter

Posted on Sep 5, 2012

From a high-volume-production point of view of the Design Idea `Test batteries without a voltmeter` (EDN, Nov 9, 2000, pg 167), it is a time-consuming and laborious task to tweak the large number of potentiometers on each of the comparator input references. An alternative to this onerous adjustment chore is to replace all potentiometers with 1%-tolerance fixed resistors (Figure 1). Before calculating each voltage-reference resistance value, you should use a reasonable selected total resistance value, RTOT, ranging from 100 k to 1 M.
