I'm looking OpAmp which could be powered from dual power supply greater than + - 36V. Current transformer provides 36,9V. And LM358 on a single supply could work up to 36V. I'm looking something what could be work on dual supply up to 40V. Any suggestions? Thank you

  • \$\begingroup\$ Try searching Apex they have pretty large range of HV op-amp, expensive thouh. \$\endgroup\$ – carloc Nov 21 '16 at 10:55

If it's a conventional current transformer and has an internal burden then applying an extra external burden resistor will lower the output voltage and give you more options on the choice of op-amp. Alternatively just use a potential divider to reduce the voltage to a more acceptable level.

Don't bother trying to find a +/- 40V op amp, just add a high voltage output stage to your LM358.

enter image description here

See page 8 http://www.ti.com/lit/an/snoa600b/snoa600b.pdf


Having said that I did find this: The LM143 which runs up to +/- 40V


  • \$\begingroup\$ This will make circuit much complex just because of this 1V. But it is a solution. Thank you \$\endgroup\$ – Dmitrij Kirikil Nov 21 '16 at 10:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ Using a dual supply you only get +/- 16V (32 V max) on an lm358 so it not just a 1V difference. Your +/- 40V target means you'll need something capable of handling 80V. If you search around you might be able to find a simpler design for the output stage or even an IC with it all built in. \$\endgroup\$ – JIm Dearden Nov 21 '16 at 10:24
  • \$\begingroup\$ FYI: the particular circuit you show is from National's AN-272. The link to that application note in the how-to wiki is dead but AN-272 can be found at ti.com/lit/an/snoa600b/snoa600b.pdf. The circuit is explained on pp. 7-9 (section 5: +/-120V Swing Booster). \$\endgroup\$ – Null Nov 21 '16 at 16:00
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, I was confused and thought that it was 36V. Basically I need one op amp to increase 5 to 36 range and other to invert -5 to positive 36V. So supplying ground to VCC and -30 to Vee. works as well. The only one problem how to get 40V range in inexpensive way. :) But I found some solutions already to try and suggestions here needs to be tested as well. Thank you :) \$\endgroup\$ – Dmitrij Kirikil Nov 25 '16 at 16:02

Have a look at the LTC6090, which accomodates a supply voltage of up to 140V (+/- 70V) with rail to rail output swing and generally reasonable specifications all around:


  • \$\begingroup\$ This one good. But very expensive 5$ for one. \$\endgroup\$ – Dmitrij Kirikil Nov 25 '16 at 15:58
