Anyone here use TINA to do circuit design and/or testing?

I think it's a great tool to gain an understanding of electronics and try things without actually having to build them...

How can I simulate a SECU-16 input in TINA?

In other words, what's behind the input/common of a SECU-16 input?

Thanks,
-Brian

A SECU16 input looks like this:

Code:


+5v
|
1k res.
|
supervised
mode jumper
| Analog
input >--+---------mux chip-------->PIC analog input
|
current loop
mode jumper
|
249 ohm res.
|
common >+------------------------->common




In supervised mode, it pulls up the input signal to +5v through 1k, while in analog mode it just passes through the analog mux chip (CMOS 14051). In current loop mode, the input is pulled to common through a 249 ohm precision resistor to convert a 4 to 20mA signal into a 1 to 5v signal.

Thanks, Guy. That's the info I think I was looking for. I'll play around with it a bit and see what happens.
