Irf840aa my next question is what is the proper method for giving a motor more and less power? When I first heard of MOSFETs and saw some pictures, I said there is no way they can carry the load that they are rated at, it takes thick wire to carry significant amounts of power, not these tiny little pins Then try supplying the NPN base from the arduino pin.

Please contact authorized Vishay personnel to obtain written terms and ird840a regarding products designed for such applications. Use Google Search box in upper right side of this page. Hence it is mostly used with Arduino and other microcontrollers for logic switching. 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.

The water pump is rated at 12V and 2. This happens even if I don’t even have the Ardunio hooked up. I maybe could have solved this with proper use of diodes, but after a few hours of messing around, I was still stumped.

Products may be manufactured at one of several qualified locations. I’ve attached an actual picture of what I’m working with. Product names and markings noted herein may be trademarks of their respective owners. If dayasheet 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. When you turn on a Mosfet by supplying the required voltage to the gate pin, it will remain on unless you supply 0V to the gate.

How to use IRFN: 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. If not, what do you do, and again, what are the proper components to use? 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.


Speed control of motors and Light dimmers are also possible with this Mosfet since it has irf840q switching characteristics.

IRF840A Datasheet PDF

I’m having some very weird issues with using PWM analogWrite and the delay function. Reliability data for Silicon Technology and Package Reliability represent a composite of all qualified locations.

I looked at the spec for a the IRF, and it looks like it needs 10V to switch it on. B, Mar This datasheet is subject to change without notice. Another problem you have is that the IRF has an enormous Ron of 0.

It also has a threshold voltage of 4V, which vatasheet it can easily driven by low voltages like 5V.

You simply need to drive its gate from a NPN transistor with pull-up to 12V – however the pump might be putting spikes onto the 12V rail which might be an issue. Once I did these things, the resistance seemed to drop to zero when I applied 5V to the gate. Customers using or selling Vishay products not expressly indicated for use in such applications do so at their own risk. Such statements are not binding statements about the suitability of products for a particular application.

Mosfet TO-220 & SMD220 Power MOSFETs

I solved this by simply adding 3 more IRF’s in parallel. And Arduino doesn’t have high-voltage tolerant output pins. I thought I’d post an update since everyone was so helpful.

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. Available in To package Note: 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.


If so, what are proper components to use? Current flows out through Source. I combed over the code because oftentimes problems like this are due to coding errors, but I have not been able to find any problems in the code.

The below circuit shows how this mosfet behaves when the Gate voltage is applied 5V and not applied 0V. Both lowered resistance, but still kept maybe 2k ohms.

No license, express or implied, by estoppel or otherwise, to any intellectual property rights is granted by this document or by any conduct of Vishay. Tying the gate to the source with a high value resistor is a good plan as people have mentioned, such as 1Mohm, so that its safely off until setup has run. I’d suggest a 1K from 12V to a capacitor to ground.

To avoid this problem we should always use a pull-down resistor R1here I have used a value of 10k. Current flows in irf804a Drain. 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: You alo need to check the data sheet datasheeet see how well it performs with only 5v on the gate. When a gate voltage is applied these pins gets closed. TL — Programmable Reference Voltage.

Something rated V and A dafasheet with logic-level drive would be much more useful to you To tackle this we should use a current limiting capacitor, I datashedt a used a value of here. I found that “analogWrite 9, ” worked better. Here is the part of the code where the delay is not working, I set it up to eliminate any outside factors: Here are some examples, to illustrate what is available http: You might need something to increase the gate voltage for lower internal resistance.
