Temperature sensor and DVM interface

Posted on May 6, 2012

The DVM gives a direct indication of the temperature of the sensor in degrees Centigrade. The temperature sensor IC1 gives a nominal 1 µ per degree Kelvin which is converted to 10 mV per degree Kelvin by Rl and VR1. IC2 is a micropower, low input drift op amp with internal voltage reference and amplifier. The main op amp in IC1 is connected as a voltage follower to buffer the sensor voltage at Rl. The second amplifier in IC1 is used to amplify the .2 V internal reference up to 2.73 V in order to offset the 273 degrees below 0°C.

The output voltage of the unit is the differential output of the two op amps and is thus equal to 0.01 V per °C.
