Since this an N-Channel mosfet the load that has to be switched in this case a motor should always be connected above the drain pin.

I’ve attached an actual picture of what I’m working with. MarkT Brattain Member Posts: Tying the gate to the source with a high datasjeet resistor is a good plan as people have mentioned, such as 1Mohm, so that its safely off until setup has run.

Another problem you have is that the IRF has an enormous Ron of 0.

I looked datasheeet the spec for a the IRF, and it looks like it needs 10V to switch it on. Available in To package Note: TL — Programmable Reference Voltage.

Also of note is that the delay function seems to work just fine if I remove the PWM pin so that it is not connected to anything. Reliability data for Silicon Technology and Package Reliability represent irf8840a composite of all qualified locations.

If not, what do you do, and again, what are the proper components to use? When you turn on a Mosfet by supplying the required voltage to the gate pin, it will remain on unless you supply eatasheet to the gate. Once I did these things, the resistance seemed to drop to zero when I applied 5V to the gate. Products may be manufactured at one of several qualified locations.

Hence it is mostly used with Arduino and other microcontrollers for logic switching. Current flows out through Source.

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: Repetitive rating; pulse width limited by maximum junction temperature see fig.

If you are designing a PCB or Perf board with this component then the following picture from the 2N Datasheet will be useful to know its package type and dimensions. Please note that some Vishay documentation may still make reference to the IEC definition. 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.

Both lowered resistance, but still kept maybe 2k ohms. This apparently produces a 1V signal. It also has a threshold voltage of 4V, which means it can easily driven by low voltages like 5V. Drain Current 12 V 0. 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.

To tackle this we should use a current limiting capacitor, Datasheef have a used a value of here. The below circuit shows how this mosfet behaves datashset the Gate voltage is applied 5V and not applied 0V. 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.

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.

I solved this by simply adding 3 more IRF’s in parallel. This is the source code that I used: I didn’t have any luck with the transistors that got from 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. Something rated V and A and with logic-level drive would lrf840a much more useful to you
