This was caused by the horizontal voltage scale being too high the LOW range voltage was 10Vpk making the horizontal scale 2.

Ask a Question Want to reply tracier this thread or ask your own question? Very handy bit of kit, i like using it for yuntron zener diodes and finding suspect components.

S you have one axis displaying???????? The other day i wast testing a bulged capacitor with the tracker and the difference between a good one of same rating was barely noticeable To get the best price you have to wait and be patient.

Huntron Tracker

That is not their real strength and what they are primarily designed and to be used for. You can’t do all that at once with a single meter, let alone switching between two boards at the same time at different voltages as well.

As such mostly electronic manufacturers or a industrial type service company would buy and use them as they would be able to do comparison analysis between a good board and bad board.

Service and User Manual. These are specialty instruments and people who are unfamiliar with them often think of them as just some over priced curve tracer or component tester and used them in that way only. And here is some competition. Non- Linear resistance in parallel b.

Most small repair shops don’t use it, and do it the manual old-school way- “sniffing and probing” with traditional instruments i. Is that a fact? Guess what was on almost every technicians bench? Thousands of Tracker s were sold over the years with the last ones being manufactured in late I suggested you Google Oscilloscope Octopus as many of your questions would be answered with pictures.


Once you know these values there are little lines on the scope screen for thisyou can see from the datasheet if they match. I agree these instruments are way overkill for use at a home shop or most electronic repair businesses.

By continuing to use this site, you are consenting to our use of cookies. We know for example what a Zener Diode does but when we see the actual curve plotted it becomes really cool.

Or i can use the lecroy and dump it all into matlab via GPIB build the graph from that. I didnt know a transistor showed a small knee on its diode trace until i saw it! The manufacturer’s list price and eBay asking price is “over the top” in terms of cost-to-value ratio.

I had assumed that dad had given back the laptop he had got from the university it’s got loads cool software onbut he slipped up and i found out he still has it!!! Dec 28, 5. At the time being i am more troubled with locating bad capacitors on a board without having to remove them first.

You’ll need to choose a username for the site, which only take a couple of moments here. 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? I am assuming that with a low enough current, when at the furthest point from the short, you would get a slightly diagonal line, this you could magnify in matlab, then as you get closer to the short, the line becomes more vertical?

It looks to be in perfect condition with no cracks scratches etc. 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. That would have been a substantial troubleshooting advantage in the early part of the 20th Century. The CD is available for purchase at our Shop Huntron online store. You’ll need to choose a username for the site, which only take a couple of moments here. Internal Resistor in parallel with diode a.


There have been several threads here discussing the Huntron Tracker The Huntrons mostly for sale on Ebay are the older Trackers models, a troubleshooting tool, no different than a oscilloscope or multi-meter but for a more specialized use, comparison analysis.

Huntron Tracker 2000 Circuit Analyzers

Really looking forward to doing it! Or how to test it? The older Bad of Nails – good for all, but limited by smaller and smaller board sizes.

For an trackrr that is seventeen years old, yet shows little indication of use or wear, that should be a red flag concerning its utility for electronics troubleshooting. Medium 2 Range b. So I am thinking, Textronix or more likely the wayne kerr analogue scope would prefer the wayne as it’s never used, just cant remember if it has GPID.

Yes a curve tracer will show short and open. Articles Top Articles Search resources. Bottom line is this is not a very useful piece of kit for the 21st Century. Very limited use, very restricted market, useless for After that, you can post your question and our members will help you out. I have no actual experience with a real Huntron Tracker, but I am sure you can find dozens of testimonials from technicians or engineers who will either swear by them or swear at them.

This effects the ability of the diode to provide maxium output c. Tracer does come with the manual. The idea behind the Huntron Tracker is sound: I not only have a lot of experience in using Huntron Trackers I own 2. While Huntron does sell testing systems the Huntron Trackers are not.

The series resistor effects the diodes to turn on at the proper voltage b.
