Description
 

A great overall tester for many of your common components. Later M328 version of the software that gives more functions. The chip is a Atmega328.128mm x 64mm big Backlight LCD display with only a 2mA when on standby. Uses a standard 9V battery (Not included). Board is all complete and ready to use however, the case needs assembly.

Tests; Inductors, Capacitors, Diodes, Dual diode, MOS, transistors, SCR (Silicon Controlled Rectifiers), Regulators, LEDs , ESR

Resistance :0.1 ohm resolution, maximum 50M ohm Capacitor : 25pf -100,000 Uf and Inductors : 0.01mh-20H

Other Features:

* Automatic detection of NPN and PNP transistors, n-channel and p-channel MOSFET,

diode (including double diode), thyristor, transistor, resistor and capacitor and other components

* Automatic test the pin of a component, and display on the LCD

* Can detect the transistor, MOSFET protection diode amplification coefficient

and the base to determine the emitter transistor forward biased voltage

*Measure the gate and gate capacitance of the MOSFET threshold voltage

* 12864 liquid crystal display with green backlight

* One button operation, automatic shutdown .

* Only 20nA shutdown current.

* Automatically detect NPN, PNP bipolar transistors , N -channel and P -channel MOSFET,

JFET , diodes , two diodes, thyristors small power unidirectional and bidirectional thyristor.

* Automatic identification components pin arrangement .

* Measuring bipolar transistor current amplification factor and base - emitter threshold voltage.

* Via the base - emitter threshold voltage and high current amplification factor to identify Darlington transistors.

* Can detect bipolar transistors and MOS transistors protection diodes.

* Measuring the gate MOSFET threshold voltage and the gate capacitance.

* Can simultaneously measure two resistors and resistor symbol is displayed.

** Note: Before measuring capacitance the capacitor should be discharged! Otherwise, it may damage the meter .

Instructions:

1. There are some digit codes like 1, 2, and 3 on back of test jig. Insert the DUT on test jig and press the button to start, the meter will identify and display the pin out vs. the clip numbers on the screen.

2. When the Component has two pins, you can choose different jig combination as test terminal, i.e. 1-2, 1-3 or 2-3.When the DUT has polar, the polar can be detected and shown accordingly.

3. When the DUT has three pins, you can choose different triple-jig combinations as test terminal, i.e. 1-2-3, 2-3-1 or 3-2-1.

III Features

1. Operates with ATmega328 microcontrollers.

2. One key operation with automatic power shutdown.

3. Shutdown current is only about 20nA.

4. Automatic detection of NPN and PNP bipolar transistors, N- and P-Channel MOSFETs, JFETs, diodes, double diodes, Thyristors and Triacs.

5. Automatic detection of pin layout of the detected part.

6. Measuring of current amplification factor and Base-Emitter threshold voltage of bipolar transistors.

7. Darlington transistors can be identified by the threshold voltage and high current amplification factor.

8. Detection of the protection diode of bipolar transistors and MOSFETs.

9. Measuring of the Gate threshold voltage and Gate capacity value of MOSFETs.

10. Up to two Resistors are measured and shown with symbols and values with up to four decimal digits in the right dimension. All symbols are surrounded by the probe numbers of the Tester (1-3). So Potentiometer can also be measured. If the Potentiometer is adjusted to one of its ends, the Tester cannot differentiate the middle pin and the end pin.

11. Resolution of resistor measurement is now up to 0.01_, values up to 50M_ are detected.

12. One capacitor can be detected and measured. It is shown with symbol and value with up to four decimal digits in the right dimension. The value can be from 25pF to 100mF. The resolution can be up to 1pF.

13. For capacitors with a capacity value above 2μF the Equivalent Serial Resistance (ESR) is measured with a resolution of 0.01_ and is shown with two significant decimal digits.

14. Up to two diodes are shown with symbol or symbol in correct order. Additionally the flux voltages are shown.

15. LED is detected as diode; the flux voltage is much higher than normal. Two-in-one LEDs are also detected as two diodes.

16. Zener-Diodes can be detected, if reverse break down Voltage is below 4.5V. These are shown as two diodes, you can identify this part only by the voltages. The outer probe numbers, which surround the diode symbols, are identical in this case. You can identify the real Anode of the diode only by the one with break down (threshold) Voltage nearby 700mV!

17. Only one measurement is needed to find out the connections of a bridge rectifier.

18. Capacitors with value below 25pF are usually not detected, but can be measured together with a parallel diode or a parallel capacitor with at least 25pF. In this case you must subtract the capacity value of the parallel connected part.

19. For resistors below 2100also the measurement of inductance will be done, if your ATmega has at least 16K flash memory. The range will be from about 0.01mH to more than 20H, but the accuracy is not good. The measurement result is only shown with a single component connected.

20. Thyristors and Triacs can only be detected, if the test current is above the holding current. Some Thyristors and Triacs need as higher gate trigger current, than this Tester can deliver. The available testing current is only about 7mA!

IV Caution:

1. Discharge the capacitors completely before you measure it, otherwise, it could damage your meter.

2. Considering the accuracy of testing, please replace batteries when battery power is low.

3. Brightness Adjustment: Keep pressing the power button and enter into the interface of contrast adjustment.

4. Error Correction: Please prepare your own necessities and refer to the following procedure.

Calibration Method:

1) Turn off the meter. Use 2 wires to short-circuit the little metal sheet marked with 1, 2 and 3; don’t release the short-circuit wires until step 3. 2) Push the start button to turn on the meter. The screen will show self test mode, the 2nd line will show ? Mark. Push the start button again quickly and Calibration will start.

3) When screen shows T4 isolate Probe, remove the short-circuit wires.

4) When screen shows 1-II-3 >100nf, connect a non-polar capacitor (>100nf) to the meter, the calibration procedure will keep going until completion.
