Ebay IC Tester Instructions Update


Posted on November 14th, by Shaun Merrigan in Tech. No Comments

Ebay IC Tester Instructions Update: Several years ago I posted the instruction and datasheets that came with the ubiquitous, generic Ebay IC Tester. These can be found here.

This post updates the original datasheet with new information: The datasheet with the tester indicates that 5v is the upper limit for zener diode testing, but recently tomtektest discovered that the unit can test zener diodes up to about 50v reliably. I dug into my parts bins and confirmed his finding using a range of zener diodes up to 48v. This is welcome information as it gives the tester additional usefulness in testing a much larger range of zener diodes.

Thanks for reading.
