Continuous Balance DVM

Continuous Balance DVM: Continuous Balance DVM – The basic block diagram of a servo balancing potentiometer type DVM is shown in Fig. 5.15. The input voltage is applied to one side of a mechanical chopper comparator, the other side being connected to the variable arm of a precision potentiometer. The output of the chopper comparator, …

Principles of ADC (Analog to Digital Conversion)

Principles of ADC (Analog to Digital Conversion): Principles of ADC – The input signal is compared with an internally generated voltage which is increased in steps starting from zero. The number of steps needed to reach the full compensation is counted. A simple compensation type is the staircase ramp. Block diagram of Staircase Ramp Type: …

Integrating Type DVM (Voltage to Frequency Conversion)

Integrating Type DVM (Voltage to Frequency Conversion): The principle of operation of an Integrating Type DVM is illustrated in Fig. 5.5. A constant input voltage is integrated and the slope of the output ramp is proportional to the input voltage. When the output reaches a certain value, it is discharged to 0 and another cycle …

Dual Slope Integrating Type DVM

Dual Slope Integrating Type DVM (Voltage to Time Conversion): Dual Slope Integrating Type DVM – In ramp techniques, superimposed noise can cause large errors. In the dual ramp technique, noise is averaged out by the positive and negative ramps using the process of integration. Principle of Dual Slope Type DVM: As illustrated in Fig. 5.3, …
