ERC Errors complaining

(1/1)

ashley.hughes:
Hi,

I have built up this diagram



The ERC Error checker is complaining that

--- Quote ---No Supply for implicit POWER pin IC2P V+
--- End quote ---

Now I get why as the op-amp needs a V+ and V- but where are these pins? or how do I connect to them when I can't see them? The part is a LM324N which is in the default libraries

Any ideas?

johnmx:
Those pins are invisible and thus global. Place two power symbols in the schematic named V+ and V-. Then connect V+ to +12V power and V- to ground.

ashley.hughes:
Thanks I changed the V12+ to V+ and 0V to V- and it keep it all happy thanks for that.

As for the rest of the circuit does it look alright as far as conventions and stuff go?

ivan747:
You left the on-inverting inputs of 3 op-amps floating. This will cause unnecessary power consumption. Put 2 10K (or any value) resistors in series to make +6V and connect all the unused non-inverting inputs to there. You don't connect them to ground because that saturates the transistors inside the op-amp, increasing the power consumption. Leave the inverting inputs as they are right now to make a voltage follower. You can also find a use for them (buffers can be useful and sometimes, adding a separate op-amp just to amplify a signal that was supposed to be amplified on the previous or following stage can correct oscillation problems. Personally, I like to use them as comparators, along with some LED's to indicate some status regardless of it's relevance  ::)).

Is that a VU meter?
