The MOS-FET transistors on the heat sink may be tested while they are not yet connected to the transformer and the control unit. First we touch with one hand the source connections of the transistors and with the other the gate connections. This will discharge the gates. Now the source / drain connections must behave like a diode, which we can test with an ohm meter. For the next test we connect a car lamp between the drain connections of the transistors and the positive pole of a battery. The negative pole will be connected to the source of the transistors. The gate must be open. If we now touch with one hand the positive pole of the battery and with the other the gates, the lamp will light up. Now we touch the negative pole of the battery and simuntanously the gates and the lamp will be switched off. If this test is positive, the transistors are o.k.
Control unit: For testing the control unit, clamp "G" and clamp "C" must be connected to ground (minus pole). This prevents the load detection circuit from switch-off. The outputs "A" and "B" will show an output voltage between 3.5 and 4 volts. Theoretically the exact value should be 2.5 volts, according to a duty cycle of 25%, but the transformer is not yet connected and so the pulse width regulator will generate maximum value. If a frequency counter and an oscilloscope are available, the control signals may be checked and adjusted to 50 cycles or 20 milliseconds (period of the 50 cycle oscillation) at these outputs. During normal operation the transformer generates peak voltages up to 28 volts on clamp "D". The pulse width regulator may be tested, if variable DC voltages from 12 V to 28 V will be applied to this connection. For testing the current limiter, variable DC voltage may be applied to clamp "C" (0 ... 1 Volt). The switch-off should take place at about 0.35 volts.
The control unit may also be tested in connection with the mosfet transistors. Instead of the transformer, autolamps would be connected. The brightness of the lamps may now be adjusted by turning resistor R16 or connecting a DC voltage to clamp "D" as described above.
The autolamp also makes possible a very simple test to adjust the frequency. Therefore we put in series with the lamp the 12 volts output of a small tranformer, connected primarily to the mains supply. Both alternating voltages will now be added or subtracted, dependent on the phase shift. The lamp will flicker. The goal is, to make this flickering very slowly. Attention: The autolamp must be 24 volts or two lamps in series.
