Wideband Lambda Probe Interface (1)
The price of fuel only ever seems to go in one direction so it is important not to waste it. The use of a wideband lambda sensor to analyse the combustion gases from a vehicle engine or heating boiler will indicate how efficiently fuel is burnt. The interface to such a sensor can however be quite complex. This design marries a lambda probe interface IC with a microcontroller to produce a stand-alone lambda measurement device. Built-in self calibration gives hassle-free setup and ensures measurement accuracy.
