The hyterisis components can work at much higher impedance levels than
the actual voltage divider if you place a resistor in series with the
relevent IC input pin. Develop your millivolt hysterisis across this
Because the circuits switch at different voltages, there shouldn't be
much interplay between the two.
You have to include the static hysterisis voltage in your setpoint
calculations, as it will seldom be symetrical about the original
calculated set points, depending on the output switch's compliance.
