Hello and thanks for this great forum.
I am interested in using the pt100 to measure temperature in a custom circuit with a PIC microcontroller. In this case, my PIC software would have to convert the probe resistance, via an ADC, to temperature. I would therefore presumably have no need for the pt104, correct?
My question has two parts.
1) Is a schematic or other documentation available for a recommended input circuit for the pt100? In other words, how do you suggest I convert the probe resistance to a voltage that can be fed to an ADC? Any information regarding suggested analog design would be helpful.
2) Do you have any suggestions for the routine to convert the digitized resistance measurement to temperature? I did notice the linearization equation on your website, but I was wondering if further implementation recommendations are available.
I am basically hoping to emulate parts of the pt104 functionality in my own design so I can easily integrate the measurements into a larger control system. If it goes well, we may be purchasing many probes.
Thanks in advance for your help,
