This is its listing on Ebay: If so, what are proper components to use? When I first heard of MOSFETs and saw some pictures, I said datzsheet 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 Such statements are not binding statements about the suitability of products for a particular application.

Here is the part of the code where the delay is not working, I set it up to eliminate any outside factors: Hence it is mostly used with Arduino and other microcontrollers dayasheet logic switching. 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 be much more useful to you To tackle this we should datashest a current limiting capacitor, I have a used a value of here.

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. Once I did these things, the resistance seemed to drop to zero when I applied 5V to the gate. I maybe could have solved this with proper use of diodes, but after a few hours of messing around, I was still stumped.


Current flows in through Drain. 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 dztasheet from the collector.

Another problem you have is that the IRF has an enormous Ron of 0. You alo need to check the data sheet to see how well it performs with only 5v on the gate.

Here are some examples, to illustrate what is available http: I’ve attached an actual picture of what I’m working with. This apparently produces a 1V signal. Speed control of motors and Light dimmers are also possible with this Mosfet since it has good switching characteristics.

If not, what do you do, and again, what are the proper components to use? Current flows out through Source. Ddatasheet last problem that I had was that the thing would overheat pretty bad after a just a few moments of the motor being on. Products may be manufactured at one of several qualified locations.

Please note that some Vishay documentation may still make reference to the IEC definition. When a gate voltage is applied these pins gets closed.


It also has a threshold voltage of 4V, which means it can easily driven by low voltages like 5V. This happens even if I don’t even have the Ardunio hooked up.

Trouble with MOSFET

Have you got a potentiometer to datasueet, maybe 1K? I looked at the spec for a the IRF, and it looks like it needs 10V to switch it on. I found that “analogWrite 9, ” worked better. TL — Programmable Reference Voltage. I’d suggest a 1K from 12V to a capacitor to ground.

Mosfet TO-220 & SMD220 Power MOSFETs

How to use IRFN: 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. 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. Drain Current 12 V 0. Please contact authorized Vishay personnel to obtain written terms and conditions regarding products designed for such applications.

So my next question is what is the proper method for giving a motor more and less power? Both lowered resistance, but still kept maybe 2k ohms. You might need something to increase the gate voltage for lower internal resistance. Then try supplying the NPN base from the arduino pin. The water pump is rated at 12V and 2.
