Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19707263A1] The invention relates to an autocalibrating sensor system comprising a sensor (1) and a calibration circuit situated in the output circuit (3) of the sensor, said calibration circuit making it possible to set switching points. The calibration circuit by means of an offset-D/A converter (5) sets an offset in the output circuit (3) in such a way that the switching points are in line with reference values. The offset-D/A converter (5) is controlled by a calibration logic (6).
