The octopus circuit’s look simple, but there must be load’s of way’s to really make a good tester. A good curve tracer does a hell huntgon a lot more. 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.

I know leakage is like a resistor in parallel with the diode, but what is a resistor in series? Then with other probe, poke about. One day, you should ask him to demonstrate his technique. I am assuming that with a low enough current, when at the furthest point from the short, you would manua a slightly diagonal line, this you could magnify in matlab, then as you get closer to the short, the line becomes more vertical?

Huntron Tracker 2000 HTR 1005B , testing for shorts and components

Google of scope octopus? Can’t I just use a AC power supply, 6. Good approximations come from the slope around zero volts and the slope at a high forward bias like about 1V. 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 20000 a decent DAC, then i could make a great transistor tester, that gives me real data curves for each transistor!


Next year Ron i want to make one that will act more like a tracer, I started a few weeks ago planning it out.

Huntron Instruments Test Set Service and User Manual

Internal Resistor in parallel with diode a. Devices like an Octopus or Huntron Tracker offer up approximations. Huntron Test Signal frequencys are 60hz, hz, hz What did they choose these 3 for test signal frequencys? 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. So do you guys know about these signature How do you know when you got defective signatures and a bad component signature?

My managers favorite one which takes days to do 2. Morning LG from my side of the pond. Non- Linear resistance in series c. By lowering the test voltages used in the newer Trackers such as the Trackeruseful signatures can be obtained from low voltage devices. The Huntron Trackeris a versatile troubleshooting tool having the following’ features: I guess if you lower the current enough and have enough adjustment, then the tracer would be great for tracing shorts?

The Tracker display indicates any component leakage, shorts, opens, noise, plus any combination of these problems caused by physical flaws. The basic one i built is really cool, but i think i need a bigger transformer one i use now is 6 voltsa 12V one would be good, some adjustable voltage regulator’s and one in constant current configuration.

Scanned document, reading partly badly, partly not readable. I know the Huntron manual has a lot of signature pictures and examples. Long way to go yet, not sure how i am 200 to do the DAC part, but probably drive it all from a 30f with the speed turned up.


This test lead is used in the alternate mode of operation. Haven’t heard about the old Huntron Tracker in decades. What can you do on a curve tracer than you can’t do on the Huntron Tracker ?

We know for example what a Zener Diode does but when we see the actual curve plotted it becomes really cool. Click here to register now. The basic circuits are hunhron built and expanded upon. Start with very low current? You must log in or register to reply here. Oh well something to try any way. I was livid over that.

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

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. The early Huntron units were based on an oscilloscope octopus circuit.

Non- Linear resistance in parallel b. Or i can use the 2000 and dump it all into matlab via GPIB build the graph from that.
