transistor output configured in such a way that the load is wired from the output of the sensor to the common side of the power source so that when the transistor turns on voltage is sourced to the load.
a device that delivers electrical energy such that the electrical current is independent of the voltage accross its terminals
a device that delivers or absorbs electrical energy such that the electrical current is
a device that outputs a specific amount of current, generating as much or as little voltage as necessary across its terminals to ensure that amount of current through it
a device that produces a constant current
a device that provides electrical energy regulated in such a way that the electrical current stays at the specified value
a device that supplies the same current to any resistance connected across its terminals
a device (usually constructed of several electronic components) that outputs a constant amount of current through a circuit, much like a voltage source (ideal battery) outputting a constant amount of voltage to a circuit
an element that delivers a constant current, regardless of the voltage across it
A power source that tends to deliver constant current.
The maximum current that can be supplied by the data acquisition device for output signals.
A current source is an electrical or electronic device that delivers or absorbs electric current. Current sources can be theoretical or practical. A current source is the dual of a voltage source.
