Linearizing Circuit for Thermocouples

This circuit changes the gain of opamp U1B in four steps or segments. It can be used to get a linear output from most transducers to 1% levels.U1A is a amplifying buffer use it to boost the signal to the required level.

Linearizing Circuit for Thermocouples

The resistor values i have put are for an imaginary transducer, you have to design them. The buffered input signal is compared to reference switching points by LM339.

Temperature Measurement and Control

LM339 changes the gain resistors of U1B thru the mux switch 4066. JP1 to JP4 can select either amplification or attenuation of signal. The resistor switched by 4066 can be across R1 or R2 based on JP1 to JP4.

You may have to input transducer values into a spreadsheet and draw a graph. Then divide the graph into 5 segments and deduce the switch points and gain.
