Subject: RC low pass circuit (1s stage) of Pentek board 

Here is the transfer function and cutoff frequency (pole) of the first stage low pass circuit of the Pentek whitening board.


R1 = R2 = 49.9 Ohm, R3 = 50 kOhm, C = 0.01uF. Given a differential voltage of 30 volts, the voltage across the 50k resistor should be 29.93 volts.

Transfer Function: 

Given by, 

H(s) = \frac{1.002\text{e}06}{s+1.002\text{e}06}

So low pass RC filter with one pole at 1 MHz.

I have updated the schematic, up to the changes mentioned by Rana plus some notes, see the DCC link here: [PLACEHOLDER]

I should have done this by hand...crying
