Dec 29, 9. I have no idea what that device is and what exactly it does or how. Since the instrument usually can acquire “signatures” without removing parts, it can become hnutron very rapid way to troubleshoot circuits and circuit boards, especially in a production environment where all the circuits and boards are identical.

In other words if you have a known good board and a bad board the signatures are going to pretty much match until you actually probe the problem area which is a huge advantage.

There is a REASON why these are appearing on the used market – companies are moving on and they are becoming redundant. 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 Trac,er actually need to know the exact parameters of the specific cap you have. 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, Tradker is temperature in Kelvin and A is the diode quality factor which is usually around 1.


Further more i would like an instrument that could reliably indicate a faulty capacitor even removed from the board. Reading the manual won’t hurt either. I sometimes jury-rig similar instrumentation for testing and characterizing semiconductor devices, although usually foregoing using just two probes. It does not have the tests leads or the power cord. And here is some competition.

Actually it is a very interesting and useful testing and troubleshooting instrument especially in it’s newer versions.

I agree these instruments are way overkill for use at a home shop or most electronic repair businesses. Of course it won’t have any “bells and whistles” like the “real deal” but at least you can get a “feel” for what its capabilities are. After replacing all of them the problem was fixed Very limited use, very restricted market, useless for Curve tracers can be calibrated.

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. While the company will have the ability to test lets say a servo drive board for example time wise paying a technician to troubleshoot it without a schematic is a money losing proposal if a Huntron Tracker is not used.

With selling electronic test equipment someone either needs it or they don’t. Yes a curve tracer will show short and open. The IV signature analyses method huntronn be very helpful as well.

You learn to “read” the results or signatures. Also higher value capacitors will “mask” a signature such as a resistance or semiconductor problem.

Ask a Question Want to reply to this thread or ask your own question? This issue was remedied with the release of Trackers that used variable ranging such as the Tracker and Tracker S.


The early Huntron units were based on an oscilloscope octopus circuit. I have a Huntron Tracker that I acquired from an estate sale. Google of scope octopus? You’d be VERY hard pressed to find a buyer.

Might be fun to play with though. They even sell robotic ones that automatically probe hundreds of test points rapidly for mass production.

Morning LG from my side of the pond. You must log in or sign up to reply here. Very handy bit of kit, i like using it for sorting zener diodes and finding suspect components. Billy Mayo Member Dec 18, Welcome to the gang, Dangie, good luck with it. huuntron

Bottom line is this is not a very uuntron piece of kit for the 21st Century. By continuing to use this site, you are consenting to our use of cookies. There are various ESR tables on the web,they are good for general guidance only.

Why can’t a DVM meter measure the leakage current or the parallel resistance? And just like companies want to upgrade analog oscilloscopes to digital ones the same holds true for the Huntron Trackers. This will draw a huntroj shape on the screen depending on the values of X and Y. Huntron Tracker Reply to Thread. Similar Threads Huntron Tracker Forums New posts Search forums.
