Switchable Voltage Divider is a voltage divider with switches. The switches can be used to control which resistors are used in the voltage divider.
Switchable Voltage Divider is a voltage divider with switches. The switches can be used to control which resistors are used in the voltage divider. The resistance values (in Ohms) are 249, 820, 2.61K, 8.45K, 27.4K, 91K, 300K and 1M. It is possible to have multiple switches flipped, putting the corresponding resistors in parallel.
It provides an interface to non-Phidgets variable resistance sensors such as: Force Sensing Resistors (FSR), light sensors, thermistors (heat sensors), and bend sensors. Comes packaged with a 60cm sensor cable.
Maximum Current Consumption: 30 mA
Supply Voltage: 3.0 to 5.25 VDC
Maximum Switchable Resistance: 1M Ohms
Minimum Switchable Resistance: 172 Ohms
Variable Resistor Range: Up to 50 MegaOhms
Resolution between SensorValue 100-900: Less than ±1% of variable resistor per SensorValue
