straker said:What's good for cleaning metal detector circuit boards? I tried using denatured alcohol and that won't cut it. My board is dusty and a little dirty. Any help would be appreciated.
I actually laughed a bit while reading your comment DOhhhh maan, are those guys even serious?! I mean, using water to clean the circuit board? Do they even understand does the circuit board do? I mean, it connects electronic components, how can you clean it with water?! In case you want to break it, and as a result to break your detectors, and after that just throw them away, then yes, use water guys! Even the best specilists in circuit card assembly would not be able to help you. Use the sprays guys, don't go full retard, never go full retard. Sorry for being a bit too harsh on you.
Agree! Water is a very mild solvent. If you care about minerals or acidity or salt in the water, use distilled water. Pure distilled water is very nearly non-conductive.[U]Hariver,[/U] did you see REAL MANUFACTURE of pcbs' to tell there is not water? constantly i take trash boards from street and wash its just by water. nothing here
special. you i see are very capitalistic there to clear boards by 'holy wiskey solvent made in USA'. i am living in REAL world and certainly water is conductor.
if you wash working board you must to give to dry 2-3 days. i did never say you to connect up board to supply right after washing -!!!
