HPS141 connecting an electrolytic capacitor


#1

Hello,

Do I have to pay attention to the polarity of an electrolytic capacitor when connecting it to the HPS141 Component Tester?

Kind regards,
Mark Evers

No you don’t have to watch the polarity.

Like most testers you should short the cap out first to avoid damage.

Hello VEL337 and Wrong_Way,

Thank you for your reply.
It is quite helpful!
I will discharge the capacitor before connecting.

Kind regards,
