Perhaps I should post this in a separate topic, but it is a continuation of the project addressed above and may relate to the way that I am using power. Such statements are not binding statements about the suitability of products for a particular application. My problem is that it never seems to be in an off state, as soon orf840a I connect the power, the pump turns on and the MOSFET gets really hot.

Submitted by webmaster on dataeheet December The last problem that I had was that the thing would overheat pretty bad after a just a few moments of the motor being on.

It also has a threshold voltage of 4V, which means it can easily driven by low voltages like 5V. Another problem you have dtaasheet that the IRF has an enormous Ron of 0.

I looked at the spec for a the IRF, and it looks like it needs 10V to switch it on. Vishay makes no warranty, representation or guarantee regarding the suitability of the products for any particular purpose or the continuing production of any product. Available in To package Note: I maybe could have solved this with proper use of diodes, but after a few hours of messing around, I was still stumped.

When I first heard of MOSFETs and saw some pictures, I said there is no way they can carry the load that they are rated at, it takes thick wire to carry significant amounts of irf8440a, not these tiny little pins I combed over the code because oftentimes problems like this are due datashheet coding errors, but I have not been able to ifr840a any problems in the code. Remember MOSFETS have an effectively infinite input resistance so if the gate is left floating it will pick whatever ions are floating around in the air, respond to any slight leakage currents that might be present.

Current flows in through Drain. If not, what do you do, and again, what are the proper components to use?

Trouble with MOSFET

I went to Radio Shack today and picked up a few things that I thought would be helpful and help get me ahead of where I was yesterday: You simply need to drive its gate from a NPN transistor with pull-up to 12V – however the pump might be putting spikes onto the 12V rail which might be an issue.

And Arduino doesn’t have high-voltage tolerant output pins. Both lowered resistance, but still kept maybe 2k ohms.

Then try supplying the NPN base from the arduino pin. Meaning, they can be turned on or turned off by supplying the required Daatsheet threshold voltage VGS. When a gate voltage is applied these pins gets closed. Reliability data for Silicon Technology and Package Reliability represent a composite of all qualified locations. I solved this by simply adding 3 more IRF’s in parallel.


B, Mar This datasheet is subject to change without notice. I thought I’d post an update since everyone was so helpful. You might need something to increase datasheett gate voltage for lower internal resistance.

This is its listing on Ebay: So my next question is what is the proper method for giving a motor more and less power? How to use IRFN: When you turn on a Mosfet by supplying the required voltage to the gate pin, it will remain on unless you supply 0V to the gate. Product names and markings noted datashewt may be trademarks of their respective owners.

Drain Current 12 V 0. If you are designing a PCB or Perf board with this component then the following picture from the 2N Datasheet will be useful to know its package type xatasheet dimensions. Here are some examples, to illustrate what is available http: Please note that some Vishay documentation may still make reference to the IEC definition.

Here is the part of the code where the delay is not working, I set it up to eliminate any outside factors: The below circuit shows how this mosfet behaves when the Gate voltage is applied datssheet and not applied 0V.
