AD5560 measure

Category: Hardware
Product Number: AD5560
Software Version: NONE

Hello,

Can the AD5560 only measure the voltage it outputs itself and cannot measure the voltage connected to its output when it hasn't been set to output any voltage?

Thank you.

    The answer to your question is NO. This is because the AD5560 can measure voltage from both its own output and an external voltage source. However, when measuring an external voltage source, it is necessary to put the force amplifier stage in high-Z mode. This mode prevents any output from the AD5560 and turns it into a voltmeter that can be read through the MEASOUT pin. The diagram below illustrates this process.
