I have recently purchased ADC 20 as well as terminal board.
I read your post "Battery Discharge Monitoring Using an ADC-16" at http://www.picotech.com/battery.html
I have a few questions:
1. It is stated "A 10 Ohm load resistor is soldered in positions P1, P2, P3, P4 and P5 on the terminal board. " I have calculated the Rload I need, in the terminal board came along with ADC20, the Rload should be soldered in positions R1b? Am I right?
2. It is stated "Batteries, in holders, are then connected to channels 1 to 5." For the terminal board came along with ADC20, where should I connect the Lithium Ion cell (3.75V, 5300mAh) to?
3. I want to measure Voltage and Current both at the same time. In the ADC-20/ADC-24 Terminal Board User Guide, page 4 to 6, as the voltage I am going to use is 4.2 V(Which goes beyond 2.5 V), so I am going to use voltage divider connection. I have calculated the RA (5.95 k ohm) and RB (4.05 k ohm) values for voltage measurement as well as RB2 (0.5 ohm) value for Current measurement. My question is, how am I going to put these three resistors on the Terminal Board? Is it true that RA positioned at R1a, RB at R1b and RB2 at R2b?
4. Other than discharging the battery, I need to charge the battery as well, so I am going to connect Power Supply to Terminal Board came along with ADC-20, where should I position the Power Supply?
Hope to hear you, thank you so much.
