No description available.


Any potential from 1 to 15 V can be monitored with this circuit. Two lamps alert any undesirable variation. The voltage differential from lamp turn-on to turn-off is about 0.2 V at any setting. High and low set points are independent of each other. The SCRs used in this circuit should be the sensitive gate type. Z1 must be experimentally determined for the particular series of SCRs used. This is done by adjusting Z1 to the point where the undervoltage lamp turns on when no signal is present at the SCR2 gate. Any 15-V segment can be monitored by putting the zener diode, D2, in series with the positive input lead. The low set-point voltage will then be the zener voltage plus 0.8 V.
