    Hi All ...

    I need to make a small electronic device that measures a TPS (throttle position sensor) and displays it on a 3 digit display in 0 to 100 percentage format. The TPS units have 3 wires ... earth, 5volt and output.
    At lowest position it outputs something like .6volt and highest position outputs up to the full 5volts. It would need to have some sort of potentiometer adjusters for both the low and high range so the unit could be calibrated for different TPS units. Hopefully it could be powered by the 5volt supply but it could be powered by say a DC12V adaptor.

    I understand what I need, but I lack the raw electronics knowledge to work this out ... I have soldering skills and could make it if I has a schematic of sorts that a nube could understand, and a list of components I would need ...thanks in advance :)

    cheers Lucky
