The unit I purchased came with a one page, 2-sided photocopy instruction sheet, so I thought I would share it here:



As far as I can tell, this unit will identify and test the following:

  • Common linear and logic IC’s
  • Some transistors; seems to be limited to bipolar

  • JFET’s
  • Three terminal regulators


Thanks for reading,
