Agricultural Electronics PCB Repair Service


Farm Electronics are pleased to be associated with Jim Horsley Electronics.  Jim undertakes electronic PCB assembly work to a very high standard for ourselves.  He also offers this very useful service which may provide a very cost effective alternative to replacing with new, faulty PCB's on agricultural machinery.

PCB Repair Service

When a PCB fails it is often the case a new one is required.  Usually they're expensive or worse still obsolete.  A whole machine could be rendered useless if a replacement PCB is not available.  There is, however, the possibility a board can be repaired.  Boards that have become obsolete may contain components still available today.  Provided the components are identifiable, there is a good chance a repair is possible.  If you are spending a fortune on replacement PCBs or discover that the board is no longer available, why not contact me and I'll see if I can help.  Often it is more economical to replace the faulty parts than to replace the entire board.  You wouldn't replace your car every time a headlamp failed or a tyre punctured.  If you think this service could be of use to you, feel free to contact me.

Exceptions

Unfortunately not all boards can always be repaired, especially those containing micro-controllers (Single Chip Computers with proprietary software programmed on them) or specialised components that are no longer available.  Manufacturers often secure their software with micro-controller ICs to protect intellectual property.  Should the micro-controller fail, only the original equipment's manufacturer is likely to be able to help - usually with a new PCB.  However, in my experience, micro-controller failure is rare even when other components around it may have failed.  Boards covered in really thick lacquer (1mm or more) or set in a block of resin are usually not a viable repair due to the labour involved gaining access to the components.

Miscellaneous Electronic Devices

I have in the course of time repaired many types of equipment that are too diverse to be categorised, ie: things like a controller for a garage forecourt car cleaner, fork lift truck motor speed controllers, servo controllers for computerised wood cutting machinery, inverters used on industrial power supplies and even a guitar amplifier for Dire Straits.  If you have equipment you've not been able to get repaired and need it working again, I might be able to help.  I can't say that i can repair every circuit board that comes my way, but I am prepared to try if it looks viable.
