I purchased an original clark zapper de luxe 2006 and following the instructions of management, always gives the message "no load" after a few seconds of "start".
The wristband is moist and well-connected to the zapper.
I note with the oscilloscope wave output that is not always positive (as it should) but centered on zero with symmetrical sides positive and negative, and a range of 2 to 3 V and maximum output peak to peak.
The amplitude output is not between 9 and 15V as shown the instruction manual.
Someone has this zapper that can tell me if this is normal?
Thank you and greetings
Thanks for your answer.
The coupling of the oscilloscope is in DC, and the wave output should always be positive(offset DC), and a range of 9V or more, however, is 3,6V peak to peak and AC.
The output wave of zaper without connecting to the wristbands is the following:
When connected to the wristbands square wave disappears and turns into a train of pulses of 1V amplitude (as if the zaper neither could deliver current output).
The zaper is totally new and do not know if this is their normal operation.
ParaZapper products will output 9.5 to 9.6 volts with a fresh heavy duty battery with a positive offset. Using a fresh alkaline battery will give a 9.9 to 10.1 volt output. A floating ground would show a sharp rise to a peak followed by a sinusoidal drop off.
