Hewlett Packard A Service Manual. Same with resistance and capacitance inductance. The basic circuits are easily built and expanded upon.

Guess what was on almost every technicians bench? A curve tracer or a I-V curve is a way of determining both parameters. Rd or dymanic resistance is the resistance as a function of bias. 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.

The other day i had a monitor that after working minutes it would turn itself off.

I thought the huntron tracker is a curve tracker. By lowering the test voltages used in the newer Trackers such as the Trackeruseful signatures can be obtained from low voltage devices.

Stop electronic waste – fix it yourself

This was caused by the horizontal voltage scale being too high the LOW range voltage was 10Vpk making the horizontal scale 2. The manufacturer’s list price and eBay asking price is “over the top” in terms of cost-to-value ratio. The Huntron does appear to have some utility as an A-B comparison “measurement” between a “known good” production board a Gold Standard if you will and a possibly defective board, whether pulled from a current production run or returned for “repair” by a customer.


The IV signature analyses method may be very helpful as well. All theory at the moment so no idea if it will work. Tarcker a 4 pin leaded inductor with a 2 pin Started by gkmaia Yesterday at To get the best price you have to wait and be patient.

From looking on EBay, it looks to be worth several hundred dollars. Oh, it doesn’t provide any numbers for comparison? If you want to get an idea of what is going on using a Huntron Tracker do a Google of Oscilloscope Octopus.


A lot of trwcker scopes for sale cheap but still can be used, same goes tfacker the older Huntron Tracker models. You then spray or heat component one by one until you see which component’s signature changes “shape” 4. In general, the higher the capacitance the lower the ESR. 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.

Main reason, no schematics for many of the boards sent in for repair. That is not their real strength and what they are primarily designed and to be used for. 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 maual understanding of things.
