Series vs parallel

A project log for Precision current generator

A useful tool that injects small currents into your circuits, below the range of your usual lab PSU

The tuning pots are logarithmic, with values of 2K2 and 220K.

They are wired in series : when used for very low currents, the 220K does the coarse value and it can be refined by the 2K2 pot.

But not the reverse...

A "range" switch should be added to connect the pots in series or parallel. The parallel mode would use the 220K for fine-tuning the coarse high current pot, above 1mA.

I'll do this when I can, but the box is already pretty crowded and I don't want to add dust...
