Post subject:  ohmeter test failed

the test 1,2,3 are not following manual values.

test1 = 0
test2 = 220 Ohm
test3 = 30 Ohm

maybe my ohmmeter is not fully aligned, but test results are not as aspected

any suggestion ?

thank
Don

Hi Don,

There is definitely something wrong with your measurements because it would be physically impossible for test 2 to show more resistance than test 1. In test 1 you are measuring the MOSFETs Drain to Source resistance with the MOSFETs biased off, which should be very, very high. In test 2 you are adding the rest of the HR50 circuitry in parallel which, if you don't have the QSK board, should be about 1.9K and if you do, it should be about 400 ohms.

If, in fact, one of the MOSFETs is shorted and test 1 reads 0 ohms, then test 2 would read 0 as well.

Hi
wrote a wrong thing and also a limit of my DMM

Test1= reading is excessing the DMM limit and now resistance can be read
Test2= abt 300 ohm
Test 3= all 4 mosfet abt 40

and so based on the test 1 I do not know if proceed to next tests or not.....

Does you amp have the QSK board?

hi,
yes, QSK board mounted and motherboard version G

With the QSK board installed you should be OK. Since your meter reads 40 ohms from the gates to ground, I believe that you ohm meter is reading about 20% lower than the actual value. If that is the case, then reading 300 ohm on test 2 would be OK.

Do you have a know resistor that you can verify that your ohm meter is reading correctly?

hi
yes instrument is not so good, and it provides a little low measure( I did a benchemark).

I went forward and verified currents and mosfet bias.

everithing was fine and I will connect to power RF ;)
Thanks andkeepin touch on Forum
