Current Loop Circuits

TEMPERATURE SENSOR WITH 4 TO 20mA CURRENT LOOP

 
I designed a circuit similar to this one years ago to accurately measure the air temperature inside a building 1000s of feet from a control room.  The circuit uses a very robust current loop method.  It uses a highly accurate semiconductor temperature sensor and an equally accurate voltage reference. The circuit includes a diode bridge, so it is polarity independent.  By using the component values indicated, the circuit should not require calibration.  It has a range from 40F to +120F and an accuracy of +/- one degree F.
