(8FSA) Help me identify this SMD transistor
« on: November 15, 2018, 09:33:46 am »
Hello all,

i have in hands a inverter welding machine to be repaired (DECA SIL-147 SIL-417) . I'm not very experienced on this but at first sight it would be just a problem of IGBTs replacement.

Looking closer i found one smd transistor (Q3) in s/c.
I don't have schematics and the case mark is not giving me any clues.
Its a SOT23 case with the inscription 8FSA



Edit:::::

Just found a similar welder schematic, but no references for the parts. The transistor should be a FET:





Can anyone help please?
Thanks

Well, I searched, hard, with all the tricks I know, but came up with nothing. I am sure you have checked the part number, but maybe give it another look.

Clean it well. Then, take a little bit of white heat sink grease, or medical zinc cream, and wipe it over the numbers. Sometimes, that helps them to stand out. Use good light, a magnifying glass and younger eyes, if available;-)

I will follow, this thread, to continue to try to help. One option is to identify what the part does and try to find a part that will meet the requirements.

Deca contact info:

Is it SIL-147, or is it SIL-417?

Hi,

Its a SIL-417, thanks for noticing the error. DECA doesn't share schematics or any tech information, i contacted them.

I found a similar welder schematic and i am confident that the the component is a BSS123 mosFET.
Didn't replace it yet because unfortunately i found other complicated issues issues with this ......  :(

Regards,

That's probably because they don't have that info to start with. It looks like a generic rebadged Chinese machine to me.

We never got board level schematics for our house brands when I was in the game, not even for the Flagship rebadged EWM models, let alone the Chinese ones. If even Cigweld and BOC can't get PCB schematics for their exclusive models, I wish you good luck. :)
It was usually a game of swapping boards, and only going to board level repair if things were obvious. (Like the period of time that EWM thought pop-riveting the heat sinks to vregs with the thin tabs was a good idea, then wondered why they all overheated and let the smoke out.....)

Any circuit design must contain at least one part which is obsolete, two parts which are unobtainable, and three parts which are still under development.
