If the ProTrack serial number prefix is KJ3 then Huntron Workstation 4.3 cannot be used. Workstation 3.5.4 may be your only option. There is more discussion about KJ3 ProTracks in this Forum thread:

As Curtis says if you want to run your ProTrack on Workstation 4.3 you will need the USB version.
I see the USB adaptor cards are still available on EBay for $95.00.

The ProTrack (USB only) and Scanner are still supported in the current version of Huntron Workstation 4.3. You can contact your local Huntron distributor and inquire about a license.

Older versions such as Workstation 3.5.4 can still be used but not with newer Windows versions. You have to use Windows XP and earlier. Workstation 3.5.4 is linked in this Forum thread:

I'll jump in before Curtis on this one.
It all depends on what version of Windows you want to run Workstation on and do you want Tech support on it.
I got the most recent version because as written about on this Forum I wanted to connect a Keysight DMM to the output of my Scanner. Plus a Keysight E4980AL LCR meter connected in the same way.

I want to use the workstation program for my Protrack I + Scanner device Model 20 A, which version should I download?
No camera

This is mostly an update for the new Trackers (2800, 2800S and 3200S with serial number 3000 and above) that have the new version main board. We recommend users with these Tracker install this version which also includes a firmware update (use the Diagnostics under the Tools menu/Maintenance).
We did address a relay selection issue for the ProTrack Scanner with this release as well.
Here is a download link:
Huntron Workstation 4.3.8705

I am going to share this free of charge.

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

Yes, i had modified some things on this unit, i had done the high voltage power supply mod and i have changed the old lcd, for a new one, in white and blue.

Although the voltage measurement is right, i will change all the electrolitic capacitors and i will try it again  :D

My thought is that power supply is starting to fail because when the leads are shorted in the LOW range there is a large current demand. Set the ProTrack to a range such as 3V, 1Kohms ( a much lower current demand) and short the leads. Replace the electrolytic caps as JVTHorsley suggested.

It appears that ProTrack has had some modifications. The white text, blue background LCD is definitely not original. It is also one of the first production run ProTrack Model 10 units based on the serial number. It was likely upgraded to a Model 20 later on. It also needs a very good cleaning!

Hello All,

Yes that is what i mean, I found one has a bad esr (4,3 ohm) and the test on the top of this smd electrolytic capacitor (See Picture) its a 47uf 16volt

Many thanks to jvthorsley and the Admin from Huntron
