Low voltage output triggering

September 4, 2013 in 8 Channel PDU by Joshua Oster-Morris

Based on a suggestion at the forum¬†where I discuss this project, I’ve implemented a method to turn circuits on or off based on voltage thresholds. An example would be to turn on a low voltage indicator light when the voltage drops below a certain level. Alternately you might turn on a generator to recharge your battery once the voltage drops below a certain level. You will be able to set a the outputs to toggle at the edge of the voltage threshold OR with hysteresis that you will define (so turn on at 11.9V and turn off at 12.8V for example).
