Hi guys,

I've been trying to design a conductivity meter based on the tutorial in this link , The oscillator works perfectly in simulation but the second part of the circuit always outputs a constant ~10.5V DC instead of it being proportional to the resistance of the solution (I replaced the conductive solution by a resistor in simulation), no matter what value resistance I put.

Any idea why?

Here are the circuit and simulation

The + input at U7 should be grounded. Right now you have + fdbk
which has the output pinned to the supply rail, roughly speaking.


Regards, Dana.
