Dax 1 modulator fault

Post by TonyG »

I'm working on a bunch of DAX 1 PA modules and I'm having a problem with one that shows a modulator fault in the fault log. All of the components that matter (FETs, ICs, diodes, etc) appear to be fine, so why does the -Vc line measure zero? Chasing my tail here ...

Hi again,
Ok, all of the floating supply rails (-Va, -Vb, -Vc) are measuring low (around 13K) between their checkpoints and gnd. Is this a commonly encountered fault?

Can you post a schematic of the PA module?
