IRFA datasheet,datasheets manu Page:1==Power MOSFET==[VISHAY] pdf datenblatt – –

Also, I have no idea how to properly use a PNP transistor, I attempted to run the 12V through the PNP and use the Arduino’s 5V to turn it off an on, however this did not seem to work and I ran into all kinds of crazy issues such as power seeming to run back through the gate from the collector.

Current flows out ir840a Source. Use Google Search box in upper right side of this page. Remember MOSFETS have an effectively infinite input resistance so if the gate is left floating it will pick whatever ions are floating around in the air, respond to any slight leakage currents that might be present.

If not, what do you do, and again, what are the proper components to use? MarkT Brattain Member Posts: You might need something to increase the gate voltage for lower internal resistance. How to use IRFN: I maybe could have solved this with proper use of diodes, but after a few datasgeet of messing around, I was still stumped.

Please note that some Vishay documentation may still make reference to the IEC definition. Here is the part of the code where the delay is not working, I set it up to eliminate any outside factors: I found that “analogWrite 9, ” worked better.

I thought I’d post an update since everyone was so helpful. Such statements are not binding statements about the suitability of products for a particular application.

Both lowered resistance, but still kept maybe 2k ohms. Reliability data for Silicon Technology and Package Reliability represent a composite of all qualified locations. Current flows in through Drain. The below circuit shows how this mosfet behaves when the Gate voltage datasjeet applied 5V and not applied 0V.

This is the source code that I used: So my next question is what is the proper method for giving a motor more and less power? Please contact authorized Vishay personnel to obtain written terms and conditions regarding products designed for such applications. And Arduino doesn’t have high-voltage tolerant output pins. If so, what are proper components to use? This happens even if I don’t even have the Ardunio hooked up.

Perhaps I should post this in a separate topic, but it is a continuation of the project addressed above and may relate to the way that I am using power. Customers using or selling Vishay products not expressly indicated for use in such applications do so at their own risk.

Hence it is mostly used with Arduino and other microcontrollers for logic switching. Available in To package Note: Repetitive rating; pulse width limited by maximum junction temperature see fig. This is its listing on Ebay: B, Mar This datasheet is subject to change without notice. So if you are looking for a Mosfet to switch applications that consume high current with some logic level devices then this Mosfet will be a perfect choice for you. Another problem you have is that the IRF has an enormous Ron of 0.

When a gate voltage is applied these pins gets closed. My problem is that it never seems to be in an off state, as soon as I connect the power, the pump turns on and the MOSFET gets really hot. Submitted by webmaster on 8 December The last problem that I had was that the thing would overheat pretty bad after a just a few moments of the motor being on. Something rated V and A and with logic-level drive would be much more useful to you I didn’t have any luck with the transistors that got dayasheet Radio Shack, I actually just ended up getting the original IRFs that I had to work by using 4 in parallel to prevent them from overheating.


Do you do what I did and turn the power on and off really fast? Here are some examples, to illustrate what is available http: I’ve attached an actual picture of what I’m working with. You simply need to drive its gate from a NPN transistor with pull-up to 12V – however the daasheet might be putting spikes onto the 12V rail which might be an issue.

I went to Radio Shack today and picked up a few things that I thought would be helpful and help get me ahead of where I was yesterday: The water pump is rated at 12V and 2.

This mosfet can drive loads upto 23A and can support peak current upto A. It also has a threshold voltage of 4V, which means it can easily driven by low voltages like 5V. When you turn on a Mosfet by supplying the required voltage to the gate pin, datasheeet will remain on unless you supply 0V to the gate.

I solved this by simply adding 3 more IRF’s in parallel. To avoid this problem we should always use irt840a pull-down resistor R1here I have used irf40a value of 10k.

You alo need to check the data sheet to see how well it performs with only 5v on the gate. Meaning, they can be turned on or turned off by supplying the required Gate threshold voltage VGS.
