In Figure 3 , the reference is shown externally connected to the internal potential divider pins 4 and 6.

At 1V, 2 LEDs turn on. Figure 8 shows the connections for making an expanded- scale meter that, for example, reads voltages in the range 10 to 15 volts.

The device can be configured for either a bar-graph mode, where all lower-output terminals switch on, or “dot” mode in which only one output goes on. The IC can be made to give a bar display by wiring pin 9 directly to pin 3 positive-supply , or — if only one IC is used — can be made to give a dot display by leaving pin 9 open circuit or by pulling it at least mV below the pin 3 voltage value.

And then we connect pin 2, V -to ground.

Look for CMOS hex inverter chip. When a particular output is active the internal chip transistors will pull the output pin towards ground.

The LM family are popular and versatile ICs that can each directly drive up to 10 LEDs but can easily be cascaded to drive larger numbers of LEDs and can drive them in either bar or dot mode.

If desired, the unit can be activated by any one of the display LEDs, in which case, the alarm will activate whenever that or any higher LED is energized. Or for every 0. Need to brush up on your electronics principles? My premise is to connect the output pins of the LM directly to the ULN see crude illustration.

If I have a pull up resistor will this not have all inputs high when it is turned on. How the Circuit Works The potentiometer is the mainstay of lm3941 circuit. At oed, all 10 LEDs turn on. The LM is an pin chip.

In practice, the IC can be powered from DC supplies in the range of three to 25 volts, and the LEDs can use the same supply as the IC or can be independently powered; this latter option can be used to keep the IC power dissipation at a minimal level. The only problem is there is a “blip” across all led’s on the ULN output at power on.

The device can be configured for either a bar-graph mode, where all lower-output terminals switch on, or “dot” mode in which only one output goes on. This includes the pinout and all the details of how to connect the LED Bar graph. In this case, the 1mA current determined by R1 of the floating 1. Since we are using LEDs with such long leads, we simply connect pin 4 to ground.

How to Build an LM Dot/Bar Display Driver Circuit

The IC has a maximum power rating of only mW, however, so there is a danger of exceeding this rating when the IC is used in diwplay bar mode. How we go about computing this is this: We do and show the math below so that there’s a exact relationship between the voltage and the LEDs lit on the bar graph.

This can allow us to switch betweeen bar mode and dot mode. Use a cheap 10x resistor network of 10Kilo ohm to pull up all disolay of LM when connecting it to logic gates.

Use the pull up resistors near LM outputs, link into the inverters and connect the outputs of the inverters to ULN If 1 or no LEDs are lit, it can mean the battery is dead. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The less voltage, dispkay less LEDs on. A number of special ICs are available for operating general-purpose LED analog-value display systems.

The internal voltage reference of the IC produces a nominal disppay of 1.

Recheck the settings of RV1 and RV2. If all 10 LEDs are lit, this could mean full strength.

Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. The dot-mode circuits of Figures 5 to 9 can be made to dislay bar-mode operation by simply connecting pin 9 to pin 3, rather than to pin In the latter case, the low end of the IC2 potential divider is coupled to the 1. Email Required, but never shown.
