I want to connect one RTD sensor (PT100 or PT1000) to the PCAN-MIO. I suppose that using one Analog Input and function block "CHARACTERISTIC CURVE WITH LIMIT" I could read the temperature and send this temperature by CAN, could you please confirm it?
Thank you very much.
the analog input is not prepared for a PT100, because the voltage difference across the PT100 when the temperature changes is very small.
You might use a PT1000. Please connect a "pull Up" resistor of 1kOhm to 5V output (5V output needs to be enabled via configuration) , connect the other side of the resistor to PT1000 and Analog input, connect the other side of PT1000 to AGND.
At 0°C you should see 2.5V , at 25°C you should see 2.61V.
PCAN-MIO has got an internal voltage divider to allow a voltage range of 0-10V. This voltage divider should be disabled (remove resistor marked with a red cross), otherwise internal voltage divider reduces the resolution by 2 and the internal divider has to be added to the calculation.
Internal voltage divider is 2x 6.8kOhm, see attached schematic diagram.
