I need to connect a sensor with a 4-20 mA loop to a microcontroller. The MCU operates at 3.3V and the following image is from the sensor's datasheet.
I'm planning on converting the 4-20mA to a 0.6-3V range to be measured with the internal ADC.
I'm trying to figure out if the setup would work if I power the sensor via a 12V boost. From what I understand it should be ok as the drops would be 3V (in case of max output) + 6V required for the sensor's operation or if just providing 6V would be enough?
