Millivolt Source with Digital Potentiometer

Here is a Millivolt Source i built for Calibration in the early days. It uses only CMOS Digital and Mixed Chips from Intersil and CD40xx Series.

Millivolt Source

Later i tried a unit with 8748 part of the code in my uC section. This is with Ramp-up and Ramp-down using only two buttons. This works even now, The support below is an HRC Fuse Holder made of Phenolic or Epoxy Resin. The mV Terminations are on Top.

Proportional Module for Process Controller

When you need a proportional control output, either 4-20mA or Time Proportional On-Off, This module is used. It does a slow PWM control, the cycle time for SSR or Thyristor Banks can be closer to Mains Frequency. The 4-20mA can be used to drive motors for turning valves for fuel or fluid heat control.

Thermocouple and Current Input Module

This module converts J, K Thermocouple and 4-20 mA Inputs to 0-2V Full Scale. These can be used for any voltage input too. The RTD module can be modified more easily for Voltage inputs. The control output can be On-Off or 4-20 mA/Proportional with another card. The 4-20mA I/O STC1000I is not complete.
