Things get a little messy when you add the Rshunt and Rseries terms Io is basically the leakage current, e is e, q is the charge on an electron, k is boltzman’s constant, T is temperature in Kelvin and A is the diode quality factor which is usually around 1. Devices like an Octopus or Huntron Tracker offer up approximations. To give you a clue,seeing as your google dosnt work, you connect the octopus to an Oscope, the scope is used in X Y mode.


You state you have had 20 technician’s job’s, so i think it reasonable to assume for example you know how a Zener diode works? The textronix analogue scope we have will print direct to a printer, so i hope to get graphs from it. Welcome to our site!

Articles Top Articles Search resources. The Signatures of a curve tracer and the Signatures from a huntron track is the same right? I spent a number of years characterizing diodes.

I know leakage is like a resistor in parallel with the diode, but what is a resistor in series?

This effects the ability of the diode to provide maxium output c. Not a protection Diode, I know they have a internal series resistor but that is made like that Diode has an internal series resistor a. A good curve tracer does a hell of a lot more. A curve tracer or a I-V curve is a way of determining both parameters.


As for knowing when you have a defective component, you could answer this one yourself. Only downside is it will huntfon a fair bit of planning before huntgon can get the soldering iron out!

Once you know these values there are little lines on the scope screen for thisyou can see from the datasheet if they match. So do you guys know about these signature How do you know when you got defective signatures and a bad component signature?

Billy Mayo Member Dec 18, Forums New posts Search forums. Huntron Test Signal frequencys are 60hz, hz, hz What did they choose these 3 for test signal frequencys? People were building their own octopus circuits long before Huntron commercialized the things and put them in a small chassis box.

I’d let your manager handle the shorted bus or shorted IC’s. Rd or dymanic resistance is the resistance as a function of bias. For a better experience, please enable JavaScript in your browser before proceeding. I forgot, yes zener’s are cool, and a good way to find out majual voltage.

Then you will understand curve tracers, how they work and what they are capable of. One day, you should ask him to demonstrate his technique. The CD is available for purchase at our Shop Huntron online store. Or i could go straight into the GPID on pc from the scope then matlab, if i can get that working, and if i can build a decent DAC, then i could make a great transistor tester, that gives me real data curves for each transistor!

Huntron Diagrams, Schematics, Service Manuals

Rseries and Rshunt are model variables. I suggested you Google Oscilloscope Octopus as many of your questions would be answered with pictures. S you have one axis displaying????????


The nice thing about building an octopus and then moving along to a fancy version is you get a good visual representation of what is going on and gain a good understanding of things.

During one of my medical leaves from work they trashed the old Tektronix curve tracer I loved.

Power-off PCB Diagnostic and Troubleshooting Tools

Then i have a choice, i can add a memory card to a pic and collect the data via serial on the tex, then download into matlab for graphing. I thought the huntron tracker is a manyal tracker. 200 to be a hell of a learning experience for you. Your hunrton diode test doesn’t measure leakage current, CAN help determine if it’s leaky.

To participate you need to register. Google of scope octopus? Service and User Manual Pages: This issue was remedied with the release of Trackers that used variable ranging such as the Tracker and Tracker S.

Although the Tracker was a great product, the range selection capabilities of the Tracker were somewhat limited in that they are not well suited for lower voltage components used on today’s typical electronic PCB. Curve tracers can be calibrated. Replacement Transformer Started by ncag Today at 7: What can you do on a curve tracer than huntronn can’t do on the Huntron Tracker ? I guess if you lower the current enough and have enough adjustment, then the tracer would be great for tracing shorts?
