There have been recent discussions with customers and internally at Huntron regarding the movement units for the Huntron Access Probers. Some have put forward that since the Access Probers actually move in the metric unit microns that the availability to select MILS as an option is unnecessary. Personally I work in microns when using Access Probers mainly because it allows for the use of smaller steps. So, do any Access users out there have an opinion on whether we should keep the standard MIL setting or get rid of it and use the metric MICRONS setting only? From a Huntron software development stand point it would certainly simplify things not having to make the mils to microns conversion for Access Probers.
Input invited!
Thanks.

Out of Production Hardware / Loss of X / Y gain on ProTrack CRT trace.
« Last post by jvthorsley on April 27, 2018, 04:14:11 pm »
For sometime had an intermittent problem with the horizontal & vertical gain on my ProTrack CRT trace.
Sometimes just had a bright spot in the centre of the CRT.
Identified the problem as bad contact between the pins on the high voltage module, Part No.2A12-N4-T0B6Z1.
Removed the socket the pins go into and soldered the module directly onto the PSU board.
Problem solved.
As can be seen and previously described on this Forum I have replaced other components on this PSU to keep it going!

Welcome to the Huntron Users Support Forum, CoraDias!

I agree that more complex ICs can fail in a way that you will not see the effect of that failure at the pins. It would like trying to troubleshoot a complex circuit board from the connectors only. The good news (if you want to call it "good") is that core failures of complex ICs are fairly rare since these problems are mostly caused by process issues during manufacture. These ICs will almost always fail the first time they are powered up.

Hi...i am a new user here. As per my knowledge it is possible that an electrical failure can occur deep inside a more complex IC and therefore be masked at the pin level where you have test access.There is not a list of what can and cannot be tested because a Tracker is a general purpose tester. It is used by people on the majority of existing electronic components.

Never heard what the resolution was for the display problem. Maybe he will respond here.

So what is it a loose connection or new LCD panel required?

Hello David
Thought you might find the attached DSI 700 to PC Cable Interface diagram useful.

Hello David                                                                                                                                                         
Hope the attachment from the DSI 700 User's Manual helps.
Any good foot switch from an electronic component supplier would do the job with the appropriate size jack plug.

I believe the foot pedal diagram has been posted on the Forum before. I will look around and reply more.

Edit: Looked at the DSI700 information and the foot pedal was a simple two wire switch to a headphone style jack.

Hello forum friends, any of you can provide a diagram for me to build a pedal for my DSI 700 scanner.
