Three Opamp Differential Instrumentation

This is the best Instrumentation OpAmp, Great CMRR, ensure supply has no ripple and keep analog and digital grounds separate. Ri can be replaced with a trimpot and resistor to alter gain. Connect a preset ends to pins 1 and 8 and preset wiper to VCC for Offset Null when high gains are configured.

The Input zeners and diodes form a protective clamp for all voltages above VCC-VDD. If supply is changed to +12 -12 change zeners to 12V zeners. Use similar Zeners at output to protect Output from being zapped by overvoltages or high energy - voltage*frequency transients. Add plastic capacitors across Rf for damping AC operation or ripple. Also avoid floating inputs by providing a bias.

There is also listed  below all the Interactive Tutorials using Virtual Electronic Components. Instrumentation Differential Amplifier using Three Op-Amps, Slide the Potentiometers and vary the mV Source, See Output DVM. This is close to the Ideal Instrumentation Amp, High Z and Excellent CMRR.

Vout = (Vp - Vn) * (2Rf+Ri)/Ri
