Connect 12vdc proximity switch to pico adc-16

Postby dave1 » Fri Oct 24, 2003 10:35 pm

the problem that i have is that the proximity switch that i am using gives out a 12v dc signal while the adc-16 will only take a 5v signal. is there anything i can do???

Hi,

To use the proximity switch you will have to signal condition the input into the ADC-16. This can be done with a simple voltage divider to reduce it to 2.5 volts, which can be made by yourself or sourced elsewhere.

Best regards,
