Hi, I want to get a V input into an Arduino from a VEGA BAR14 pressure sensor which outputs mA. Yes I know I can convert to V. Texas Instruments RCV Linear – Amplifiers – Instrumentation, OP Amps, Buffer Amps parts available at DigiKey. You can make a single-supply current loop receiver with the RCV by using its 10V reference as a pseudo ground. The RCV will convert a mA loop.

The problem is that I am getting an offset of about rdv420. I’ve corrected the model, see below and attached.

From you first post you mention that the output is negative if the direction of fcv420 changes. That will affect the necessary connections around the RCV To convert a mA signal to a V output a TI, Wanted to add – the neg power supply had disconnected from the RCV – which resulted in the positive reading with the rc4v20 – as soon as I fixed that – was back to reading negative. A dmm will show 12v from gnd to positiv and v from gnd to negativ.
Also in this post you mentioned that the sensor output around mA, causing the RCV output to saturate to around Ah well I’m getting nowhere I’ll just bin it.

Jan 10, 3: A mA creates a 5V to 1. Ask a related question What is a related question?
What is the purpose of the two capacitors in fig 8?
Does that sound somewhat unusual? Jan 9, 5: Colin, Thanks for the reply.
Do you have another question? That said, there’s something wrong with your mA sensor transmitter if it is outputting mA. First to be clear there are internal ESD diodes between the output and the supply voltage.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
