Circuit breaker monitors leakage current
Circuit breaker monitors leakage current
12.13.2020 Circuits

The residual-current circuit breaker continuously monitors the supply lines for any leakage current and immediately disconnects the supply if necessary. Load-supply wires, both live and neutral, pass through the magnetic core of the CR4311-5 transducer, which monitors the supply current...

Circuit provides flexible gain ranges
Circuit provides flexible gain ranges
12.10.2020 Articles

Certain designs need a programmable-gain amplifier with a wide gain range and high accuracy and common-mode rejection. Usually, it's wise to exploit a programmable-gain instrumentation amplifier, such as an AD625. Unfortunately, the gain range of such standard parts is fixed at certain values...
