Automatic contrast meter

Posted on Aug 17, 2012

The circuit arrangement consists of a photo-amplifier which feeds a voltage derived from varying light levels in an enlarger to a pair of peak detectors. One follows the peak positive voltage and the other the peak negative voltage. The capacitors used for storing the voltage peaks in the followers also form part of sample and hold circuits which are then switched to hold after the measurement. Their outputs represent the maximum and minimum values of light intensity

A differential amplifier then computes the ratio of these values, and the result is displayed on an LED bargraph meter.
