Title: help with UAA2016 app circuiit from data sheet
Post by: MrDEB on October 17, 2011, 04:57:19 AM
I contacted ON semiconductor but no luck.
Want to use the UAA2016 zero voltage switch in a temp ctr soldering iron but how to use??
Here is the circuit I tried to get working but to no avail.
Going with a PIC, Hakko 907 iron but how to use the UAA2016??
I am lost big time with math.

That's a very nice chip! I never knew this before! I checked the datasheet, and i think i will get some of those for stock. I wish i knew them before, when i was designing my heater. Anyway. There is a nice typical application in page 3 of the datasheet:


If i were you, i would start messing around with the chip by designing and testing this circuit. Then i would play with the Rs resistor. I do not think that you need to know how to solve the math for RL and ILOAD. This is what you need to work on (page 5):

Temperature Sensing (Pin 3)
The actual temperature is sensed by a negative temperature coefficient element connected in a resistor divider fashion. This two element network is connected between the ground terminal Pin 5 and the reference voltage − 5.5 V available on Pin 1. The resulting voltage, a function of the measured temperature, is applied to Pin 3 and internally compared to a control voltage whose value depends on several elements: Sawtooth, Temperature Reduction and Hysteresis Adjust. (Refer to Application Information.)

And of course you need to experiment with the hysteresis by R3 (pin 2)

I'm -almost- sure you do not need to mess with math. I wouldn't... Unless you want to know (predict) the current and thus the power consumption of the heater.
