Temperature Reference

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Temperature Reference

It is often difficult to properly calibrate a temperature sensor since there is no suitable aid for doing so available. This article, which describes a temperature reference source, aims at putting this right. Since the source is made variable, the reference temperature may also be used for adjusting thermostats correctly…. Read more »

Heat Sensitive Switch

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Heat Sensitive Switch

At the heart of this heat-sensitive switch is IC LM35 (IC1), which is a linear temperature sensor and linear temperature-to-voltage converter circuit. The converter provides accurately linear and directly proportional output signal in millivolts over the temperature range of 0°C to 155°C. It develops an output voltage of 10 mV… Read more »
