*The base-emitter voltage drop (VBE) introduces some limitations in using emitter follower as a voltmeter: The circuit cannot measure the input voltage less than 0.6 V a non-proportional deflection: error From the above experiment, if we apply Vin with 5 V, the meter should read half of full scale I.e. Im = 0.5 mA. But, the simple calculation shows that Im = 0.46 mA

PMMC

Practical emitter-follower voltmeter using second transistor Q2 and voltage divider R4, R5 and R6 to eliminate VBE error in Q1

At the condition of Vin = 0, Vp should be set to give zero meter reading, Vm = 0. Therefore, the potentiometer R5 is for the zero adjust. If transistors Q1 and Q2 are identical, VBE1 = VBE2

At Vin = 0 -> Vm = 0, give Vp = 0 Consequently, if Vp is set properly, Vm will be the same as Vin Example An emitter-follower voltmeter circuit as shown in the previous picture has R2 = R3 = 3.9 k and supply with 12 V. Calculate the meter circuit voltage when Vin = 1 V and when Vin = 0.5 V. Assume, both transistors have VBE = 0.7 V SOLUTION when Vin = 1 V

The non-inverting amplifier gives a very high input impedance and very low output impedance. Therefore, the loading effect can be neglected. Furthermore, it can provide gain with enabling to measure low level input voltage.

Example Design an op-amp Voltmeter circuit which can measure a maximum input of 20 mV. The op-amp input current is 0.2 A, and the meter circuit has Im = 100 A FSD and Rm = 10 k. Determine suitable resistance values for R3 and R4 SOLUTION To neglect the effect of IB, the condition of I4 >> IB must be satisfied. The rule of thumb suggested I4 should be at least 100 times greater than IB Select I4 = 1000 x IB = 1000 x 0.2 A = 0.2 mA meter

An electronic voltmeter can be used for current measurement by measuring the voltage drop across a shunt (Rs). The instrument scale is calibrated to indicate current.

AC Electronic Voltmeter

Principle

Most ac measurements are made with ac-to-dc converter, which produce a dc current/voltage proportional to the ac input being measured

Vin

ac to dc converter

dc meter

Classification:

Average responding periodic signal only Peak responding any signal RMS responding (True rms meter)

AC Electronic Voltmeter

The scale on ac voltmeters are ordinarily calibrated in rms volts

Form factor is the ratio of the rms value to the average value of the wave form

Vin

ac to dc converter

dc meter

It should be noted that the rms value is calculated from Vin, while the average value is calculated from the output of ac-dc converter.

Form factor is the ratio of the peak value to the rms value of the wave form

Crest Factor =

V peak Vrms

Average-Responding Meter

In this type of instrument, the ac signal is rectified and then fed to a dc millimeter. In the meter instrument, the rectified current is averaged either by a filter or by the ballistic characteristics of the meter to produce a steady deflection of the meter pointer.

Calculate the value of R3 that will give meter full-scale pointer deflection when the ac input voltage is 100 mV (rms). Also determine the meter deflection when the input is 50 mV.

Peak-Responding Voltmeter

The primary difference between the peak-responding voltmeter and the averageresponding voltmeter is the use of a storage capacitor with the rectifying diode.

dc amplifier

the input impedance of the dc amp

Charge cycle

Discharge cycle

In the first positive cycle: VC tracks Vin with the difference of VD, until Vin reaches its peak value. After this point, diode is reversed bias and the circuit keeps VC at Vp VD. The effect of discharging through R will be minimized if its value is large enough to yield that RC >> T.

If A is large

Vout Vin

If the amplifier gain is very large, Vout is equal to Vin, this means that the dc voltage output is therefore equal to the effective, or rms value of the input voltage
