Quartz crystal tester circuit

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

This a very simple and inexpensive circuit that can be used to test quartz crystals. Here a Colpitts oscillator is wired used the transistor T1. When the crystal is connected between terminals A and B the circuit will produce high frequency oscillation. The oscillations will be generated only if the crystal is a good one. The diode OA91 will rectify t

hese oscillations and it can be visually identified from the meter. The deflection of the meter will be directly proportional to the activity of the crystal.
