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. Please contact authorized Vishay personnel to obtain written terms and conditions regarding products designed for such applications.

Then try supplying the NPN base from the arduino pin.

IRFN Pinout, Features, Equivalent & Datasheet

How to use IRFN: Since this an N-Channel mosfet the load that has to be datasheett in this case a motor should always be connected above the drain pin. Hence it is mostly used with Arduino and other microcontrollers datwsheet logic switching.

Here are some examples, to illustrate what is available http: Another problem you have is that the IRF has an enormous Ron of 0. Datasheft 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.

If not, what do you do, and again, what are the proper components to use? Meaning, they can be turned on or turned off by supplying the required Gate threshold voltage VGS.

Mosfet TO-220 & SMD220 Power MOSFETs

Current flows out through Source. Do you do what I did and turn the power on and off really fast?

Both lowered resistance, but still kept maybe 2k ohms. I’d suggest a 1K from 12V to a capacitor to ground.

This idf840a can drive loads upto 23A and can support peak current upto A. So my next question is what is the proper method for giving a motor more and less power? Product names and markings noted herein may be trademarks of their respective owners.

This is its listing on Ebay: My problem is that it never seems to be in an off state, as soon as I connect the power, the pump turns on and the MOSFET gets really hot. I solved this by simply adding 3 more IRF’s in parallel.

This is the source code that I used: MarkT Brattain Member Posts: I’ve attached an actual picture of what I’m working with.

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. 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. You might need something to increase the gate voltage for lower internal resistance.


TL — Programmable Reference Voltage.

I found that “analogWrite 9, ” worked better. If so, what are proper components to use?

When I first heard of MOSFETs and saw some darasheet, 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 Such statements are not binding statements about the suitability of products for a particular application.

Products may be manufactured at one of several qualified locations. Available in To package Note: I’m having some very weird issues with using Datzsheet analogWrite and the delay function. I maybe could have solved this with proper use of diodes, but after a few hours of messing around, I was still stumped.

The water pump is rated at 12V and 2. I looked at the spec for a the IRF, and it looks like it needs 10V to switch it on. The last problem that I had was that the thing would overheat pretty bad after a just a few moments of the motor being on.

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.
