The latest video on the Huntron YouTube channel looks at using the SigAssist feature in Huntron Trackers and the Huntron Workstation software. SigAssist is used to calculate approximate component values based on the signatures being viewed.
Thanks.

Are these all the same manuals you had to previously pay for on a CD / DVD?
Yes. The main reason behind this decision is that newer PCs are not including an optical drive so we decided just to put them on the website for all to access. While some of our manuals can be found online already, some of those sites are a bit sketchy. We would rather have Huntron users get them from the source.

All of the Huntron product manuals are now available for download from the Huntron website.
Go to our Huntron Technical Support web page, scroll down a bit and select the Product Manuals tab. All manuals, ancient and new are there.
We have also linked manuals on their respective product web pages.
Thanks.

For in circuit electrolytic capacitor test the best instrument in my opinion is the BK 881.

I am surprised at myself for not responding to this comment. This is a "Huntron" forum after all.
In-circuit testing with an ESR meter will give you cumulative values since there can be caps in parallel. How do you know which cap has leakage?
Finding a leaky signature when testing the "tops" means that specific cap has an issue. That's the beauty of this method.

Have a nice day.
Thanks for updating us on the repair. It is always good to have this information on the Forum.
Cheers!

If Channel A was being used when the charged cap was tested then relays K48 and K2 (located by the banana jacks) would have been closed and possibly damaged. K1 and K27 could also be damaged. Also check D6, D7 located on the top side near the relays. Check R103 (1K) and R102 (1K) located on the bottom. U16 could also be damaged (large 7 pin OPA551).

Hi,

After the resistances and relay replacement the tracker is half working.

If I push on the "Menu" button and select on the screen "control" "2000" "Low", the tracker works fine.

If I changed the "low"mode with "MED1" or "MED2", a low resistance value close to short-circuit appears on the display. (picture 1)

The same problem appears with manual settings when i push the 15 or 20V button (picture 3)

When I launch a diagnostic analysis of "all", the tracker keeps blocked on this screen (picture 4).*

Can you please help me to find a solution ?

Thanks in advance.
