Thanks for the nice comment. It is a BAT43, will look at correcting the diagram. Note: the voltage drop from multiple diodes in series is additive, so you can mix and match to get the closer to the exact drop you want when tuning( mixing Schottky and non-Schottky as you may need..)Cheers..

Hi, nice circuit. i will try it out. But i have one question. In step seven in the text you say you take a BAT43 schottky but in the circuit diagramm is a BAT42 diode. Which one is correct?Thanks for your answer and the stamina for your project.
I really like the "After a few hours of frustration, I tried my hammer, but that also didn’t fix it, although it did reduce my options to just one; building a new sensor circuit." At some point it is just better to cut your loses and start over. I never thought of it as reducing options, I had previously just considered it a permanent fix to a specific problem. I have been enlightened. Thank you.
Hi, Thanks for the comment,. It took a few weeks of elapsed time to do the research and get the components together to breadboard, PCB mount, and then test and adjust this. In actual workbench time, maybe 8 hours or so. Writing this was actually done by using my notes as I went through the process, and then condensing. The actual article occured over a few hours over a few days. I have learned so much from others who published articles on their efforts, I thought I would share as well. Hope it is found useful..Cheers
