Reconfigurable Two-Current Source Supplied Signal Conditioner for Resistive Sensors
The principle of operation, its practical realization and measurement research of a reconfigured system of a signal conditioner are presented. A two-sourced conditioner supplied by direct current with four resistance sensors and four switching keys was experimentally tested. In the example application the resistance of sensors in the function of the same point load, caused by perpendicular force, was measured. In order to compare the results achieved with the use of a conditioning circuit, similar tests were carried out for a four-channel Wheatstone’s bridge-based commercial acquisition card. The research aimed at confirming the possibility of implementing the constructed signal conditioner in cheap measurement equipment.
