Other uses for a ProTrack Scanner
« on: March 23, 2021, 12:03:12 pm »
A question Curtis
In my other contribution to this Forum "Manual versus Automated PCB Testing" using the output from the Scanner connected to a DMM+ the Scanner utility on the ProTrack menu to quickly make resistance measurements though the 64-way IDC connector.
As the Relay contacts are isolated could the above configuration be used on a live TTL logic circuit to check voltages on IC's with an IC clip? Or on circuits say up to 12 V.D.C. or A.C.?

Hmmm... I don't see why not. The current levels should be pretty low. The max voltage rating for the contacts on those relays was 200V though I would not risk going to that high. :)

The most important troubleshooting tool is your eyes.

Thanks Curtis
Using my Agillent 34410A DMM I don't think would take much current on voltage measurements.
