RC Filter for 0-20mA Bricklet


Recommended Posts



I am just wonder about the capacitor and resistor that in front of the input of the ADC on the 0-20mA Current Loop bricklet. if I calculate the cutoff frequency I get 1592hz.  Is there some noise that needs to be filtered around that frequency?  Maybe it is not intended as an RC filter and the capacitor is filtering the ripple but the resistance is for some other purpose?


Also, I notice that the ADC is grounded with the power source of the current loop device AGND.  What would happen if the ADC chip was connected to the 3.3V power supply ground EP.
