Precision Null Detector

Precise determination of null point in AC/DC bridges helps us to evaluate accurate values of circuit components like L and C. Here is a null detector that has many merits. -- Somnath Chakrabarti

Shift the voltmeter to pin 6 of IC4 and trim VR2 such that the voltmeter reads 100 mV. At this instance, the tenth LED begins to glow without any flicker along with all the preceding nine LEDs. Your null detector is now ready for use.

The minimum input voltage Vi (min) to which the null detector can respond obviously corresponds to the voltage that just turns on the first LED, viz, Vo, DC =10 mV.

For DC signal, Vi, DC (min) = 10 mV/10A=10 mV/400=25 µV.
For AC signal, Vi, rms (min) = 10 mV/9A=10 mV/360=27 µV.

This circuit costs around Rs 100.

  1. Hi
    Is there any circuit that can work as Null Detector for Wheatstone DC Bridge with Precision step in Microampere. Very nice topic, thank you for sharing best regards Nikos
