With this simple measuring device can: Determine the Zener voltage up to 25V. The connections of cathode and anode of each diode finding. Check if a diode fails. Silicon, germanium and Schottky diodes distinguish. LED test and the V forward measure Q1 is connected as power supply. Because D1 is a constant tension on the base and there is resistance in the chosen emitteraansluiting approximately 5.6 V. With an R2 emitter of 5K6 will run through the transistor than 1mA. With the resistors in the circuit selected is the current approximately 1mA, 2mA, 5mA, 10mA and 20mA. Great precision is not necessary. If meter is chosen here a little DVM module. But every other meter can be used if the input resistance but high enough. Construction: The circuit is simple to build on a piece of PCB holes. Note that the DVM module of the circuit a separate isolated power supply needs. Instructions: Connect the test zener diode between the A and K connector. Start with a current of 2mA. This is a safe value for most types of zener diodes. Depending on the type of zener diode, a larger current can be selected. The Zener voltage will vary slightly. Join the zener diode on backwards, the meter will indicate approximately 0.7 V. The same image shows a normal silicon diode. A germanium diode, a voltage of about 0.3 V to 0.4 V, while indicating a Schottky about 0.2 V indicates. Join an LED on A and K, it will light and the V forward (the LED voltage) of the LED indicate. The diode / LED indicates the faulty meter is zero if the voltage on the collector of Q1 is, this is> 25V.

The ^generator output is rectified then filtered and applied between the positive supply voltage and the base of the detector transistor. This provides a negative voltage which reduces the base-voltage when the speed increases. In normal operation, if the tachometer voltage is less than desired,...
