Could it be because im not using the right zener diode ?
Its written ZPD5V1 on it.. is that correct ?


The Zener diode is fine.

You might want to check inside the meter and be sure the little safety fuse isn't blown.

Did you try measuring the voltage of a battery of some kind to be sure the meter is working OK?

Just had another thought. Put a fancy cover on them and call them "dapper diva dapters". Man I gotta get some sleep...

Shame on me indeed! Here's hoping Darlene forgives me for this biggrin.gif ...

I shoulda seen that coming . . . . . .


I think it's hilarious thumb.gifthumb.gif


Wonder if I could trade mark it, lol

think the meter is OK.. i did manage in some point to get 12V depending on where on the terminals i placed the probes

I preformed a second attempt with modding the pump cable and still no luck on reading the RPM mad.gif
I guess there must be a loose connection on the pcb.. isnt it possibe to measure the tac cable without taking the pump out ?

I popped the cap on the pump and cant see any loose ends on the pcb
How do i measure the wire ?
post #165 of 10727

You need to test for continuity between the rpm solder pad and the pin at the end of the wire. Or even between the solder pad on the pump and the solder pad on the Aquaero if you have them plugged to each other. 

 

My meter's a little different, i don't have to choose the value's before i measure. But i'd try maybe 2000 ohms or 200 ohms on the dial. Ohms are the 2nd section to the left of OFF. That little Omega symbol

how can i test it if nothing is powered up ? you need to school me here.. how about one of your famous architectural drawings biggrin.gif

Because you're not testing for Voltage. Your testing resistance for continuity in the signal. So if you have them plugged into each other, the meter should be able to send a signal from the solder pad on the pump to the solder pad on the aquero. 

 

My "Resistance/Ohms" selection on my Meter gives me the option of it making a beep when i'm testing for continuity instead of resistance. 

It's easier when you don't need to stare at the meter. But you should see something come up on the screen if there's no break in the wire

so i need to dial the nob to ohm on 20 ? and how much should it indicate on the meter ?

measuring from pcb to terminal on the cable with 200ohm i get 2,3 and sometimes lower

I don't see a 20 on there. I see 200, 2000, 20k....

 

I'd dial it to 2000 probly. It doesn't matter what it shows on the lcd, as long as it gives a reading. You're testing for continuity, not ohms, so the actual measurement doesn't matter.

 

For instance, if you test it from the solder pad on your pump to the light bulb in your lamp, it won't give a reading because they're not connected. If the wire isn't broken, it'll read something, if the wire's broken, it won't

sorry i meant 200.. but i do get a readout no matter what. So what does this conclude if im not getting a rpm readout on the aquaero nor the fan header on the mobo
