    Theory of Operation Theory of Operation This section provides the theory of operation for the 87 V/AN Digital Multimeter to a depth that is required for troubleshooting to the component level. The functional block diagram provides an overview for the description. The schematic diagrams included in the manual are referred to during the following detailed circuit descriptions.
  • Page 18: Power Supply And Voltage Reference

    Reference Supply ama101f.eps Figure 1. 87 V/AN Block Diagram Power Supply and Voltage Reference A 9-V alkaline battery supplies power to the Meter and is connected via a cable assembly to J3 on the A1 printed circuit assembly (PCA). Diode CR3 protects the Meter from damage due to accidental polarity reversal at J3.
  • Page 19: Function Selection And Overload Protection

    Digital Multimeter Theory of Operation enabled and disabled via control line V5* from microprocessor U2. C15 bypasses the output of U10. When U10 is enabled, 5 V is supplied to the voltage reference U8 input. U8 is a 2.5-V reference with a buffered output and accurately holds the COMMON input 2.5 V above the -2.5 V power supply or at 0 V.
  • Page 20 87 V/AN Service Manual The Meter uses diode clamps, a positive temperature coefficient thermistor, metal oxide varistors (MOVs) and fuses for protection when inadvertent overload conditions are applied across the input terminals. Table 12 shows the components that limit and direct overload currents to prevent damage to the Meter.
  • Page 21: Analog Signal Conditioning

    Digital Multimeter Theory of Operation Internal diodes on each pin of U1 clamp the voltage to a diode drop above or below the power supply levels. Further, U1 power supplies are internally clamped together to prevent overvoltage damage to circuits within U1. U1 pins 1 & 36 have the positive clamp tied to the voltage at CPH (U1 pin 32), which is approximately 5 V above the 2.5-V power supply when the charge pump and current source in U1 are enabled.

    87 V/AN Service Manual within the band pass specification of the Meter. The signal at ACAMP_O is routed to the Low-Pass Filter and/or the RMS Converter using multiplexer U12. The output of Low- Pass Filter or the RMS Converter is routed back into CONV_IN (U1 pin13), filtered, buffered and passed to FE_O (U1 pin 19) ready for measurement.

  • Page 25: Analog To Digital Converter

    Digital Multimeter Theory of Operation Analog to Digital Converter U3 is a 20-bit Σ∆ analog-to-digital converter (ADC). C21 & C22 are power-supply bypass capacitors. The DC signal at FE_O (U1 pin 19) provides the signal input for U3. The reference for conversion is supplied by U8 as described in 1.3 to the REF and VIN* (compliment of VIN) inputs.
