Re: Power output tests at 24v PA
That's correct, assuming a forward voltage of 0.4 Volts across the diode.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
According to fig 7 of the datasheet, that happens at a current of 20 uA when the temp is 25 C.
Dividing the peak voltage (what you measure with a diode detector) by 1.414
converts it to an RMS voltage, assuming we are dealing with a sine wave.
We must use that RMS voltage when calculating power.

I could be way wrong but I measure DC volts, add 0.4V then divided by 1.414.
