I need to limit a signal to the following range: This signal is comming from a shunt resistor in series with a load with variable impedance on a V power grid. The project contemplates loads up to 1A peak, but I can’t guarantee this restriction will be obeyed all the time.

But I need to guarantee the resulting voltage don’t exceed the specified range. To give a small guarantee, I’m using a shunt whose equivalent resistence is approximately 0. I cannot use normal diodes because its forward voltage nat46 too high.

I’ve tried to use two low forward voltage Schottky diodes BAT46but didn’t worked in my simulations. How can I do this?

I need a solution that uses simple components, because where I live they don’t have a big component variety and to buy those components on the internet it takes more than one month to arrive. I already have this BAT46 I mentioned. Since I’ve asked the question last night, I kept searching for alternatives. I found a clipping circuit voltage in a Malvino and Bates’ book.

And I think I understand its purpose: But still the established limit datashwet not being respected. I’m open to suggestions on how to ensure that the limit is obeyed with less “tolerance. Now I’m using dafasheet diodes forward voltage about 0. The first stage of opamps are to don’t mess with equivalent resistance I think this is officialy known as “impedance transformation”.

The second opamp is to invert the bias. Here’s the active clamp circuit I came up with. I entered it into Circuitlab so that Datashset could simulate it and verify its performance. Note that the output is inverted relative to the input.

This is required because the inverting input of OA3 needs to be a “virtual ground” for the mixing to work correctly. An inverting buffer can be added at the output if needed. Note datsheet R1, R2, R3 and R4 need to be the same value. Also, R5, R6, R7 and R8 need to be the same value, but not necessarily the same value as the first group. I also show the dataaheet for V1 and V2 for the mV case the two funky waveforms running across the middle. For monitoring current in an AC power line, a non-invasive sensor such as SCT datasheet linked might address your requirement:.


In order to amplify the sensed voltage to the mV range if required, datassheet basic op-amp circuit will work fine, no line isolation needed. There are similar sensors with lower AC current sensing amp or ampand with preamplified and even digital outputs, to refine the specification more finely.

They aren’t as inexpensive as this device, though: Is there some other specification that requires the use of the shunt resistor approach?

If so, please update your question accordingly for further inputs. I’m late to the party, but here’s an alternative circuit to the one proposed by Dave. I felt like it was worth posting it since it’s way simpler, even though the clipping is not as hard or as stable with temperature. All the component values are commercial. If you can’t manage to find a TLC op-amp, try with a TL but take care because it’s not rail-to-rail.

The voltage divider at the output can be omitted if you’d like to have a bonus 1. The output is negated with respect to the input: Here’s a time domain simulation from the CircuitLab project.

Clip signal with very low threshold Ask Question. First edit Here is my current schematic: In most circumstances, it will consume less than 1A peak, in another words, its “average” impedance will always be above ohms. But I’m trying to avoid the range of the input pin to be exceeded in possible peaks when the load is connected, for example.

Second edit Now I’m offering a little bounty in accordance to my low reputation.

I looked for other solutions and I managed to assemble the following circuit: This way I can “remove” voltage from the diodes and put them in short with less voltage. As you can see, this apparently works input on the left, output on the right: But when the input is below the threshold, the output is slightly datsaheet than the input: This isn’t a real problem, but if I can avoid it, it would be better.

First of all, will this work? I’ve used this bat446 because it is very simple.

But I didn’t choose a opamp. The only opamp that I eatasheet is the What opamps can you recommend to me? How can I make negative supply for all opamps?

Schottky Diode substitution – Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange

How can I better calibrate the components values to get even closer to the threshold? Can you show the schematic of what you simulated? Schottky diodes should work in this situation, assuming you are not too fussy about exactly what voltage the clipping happens.


I’ve worked out a way to create datasbeet active precision clamp using a pair fatasheet precision rectifier circuits, as long as the bandwidth required isn’t too great. It requires three opamps Going by the requirement your question implies, an alternate approach might be to dispense with the shunt resistor altogether, and use a coil coupling to sense current non-invasively.

Current sense coils are available with various transfer functions, or you could just wind your own. Limiting the voltage on the resultant output becomes a low-voltage op-amp problem, simple and safe. I can’t speak to availability in your country, but Microsemi UPSU has guaranteed max forward voltage of mV at 1 A, and is “widely available” in the US meaning, it’s available at Digikey.

BAT46 – 100V 0.15A Schottky Diode

Your BAT46 is likely to cause problems since it’s only rated for mA repetitive peak current or mA continuous. I’ve edited my question. And about the UPSU Note that if the thresholds are not symmetrical, the output will have a DC offset.

Yes, when I read this doing some sort of precision rectifier thing with opamps came to mind. Looks like you got this all sorted out: I want to use this as a method of providing guitar distortion. Persumably that would provide dataasheet certain amount of clipping to any signal rather than just clamp at vclamp? Would you simulate that for me because I’m too tight to pay circuit lab?

I datssheet pay you in bounty: For monitoring current in an AC power line, a non-invasive sensor such as SCT datasheet linked might address your requirement: No shunt resistor needed hence no heating up on overcurrent; Sensor output is isolated from power line hence no risk of electrocution; Output voltage is mV for up to 10 Amperes, so well within specified range; Such induction devices typically saturate a bit beyond the designed current limit, hence arbitrary voltage output at the sensor is prevented.

Anindo Ghosh 46k 7 84 Thank you for your answer. But unfortunately I can’t use a sensor of this type because I can not find it easy to buy, then that would make an international purchase, which would dataxheet weeks to deliver. But I really liked this sensor and I think I will buy it for future versions of this project. Danilo Roascio 3. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook.
