Testing a NST with a DMM? Answered
I have been looking for a good (and cheap) NST for a while but i dont want to risk spending too much on a NST that doesnt work. I know that my local scrap yard has a large supply of old NSTs that are either there because both or one side doesnt work, they were upgraded, or someone needed the money and/or space. i also know that they would frown upon me wiring each one up and testing each.
so onto the real question: is there a way to test a NST with just a multimeter and possibly a battery (i know thats how some people test for flyback transformer pins) or if checking continuity would be enough or even another way?
Just so everyone knows i have spent quite a while searching for someone using this technique but didnt find anything, also im looking for a way to know for sure if one or both sides are working.
