I have a background in software data logging using a/d converters with transducers and other sensors. However, this was some years ago and I now need to restore my expertise. I am looking at the initial feasibility for a very specific one off application.
Looking at the ADC 11, it appears to handle an input voltage of 0-2.5v DC. That's fine but what I have no idea of is the extent to which that is compatible with various sensors that are available. I wouldn't even know what sensor supplier to look at... RS, Farnell??
I will need to measure simple things like voltage, current, temperature; but also a number of domain specific inputs/levels that form part of a control system. I don't yet know the operating voltages but I would just like to get a feel for general sensor compatability and/or good sources of information about this topic.
Thanks for your assistance,
