According to this Onsemi datasheet: Note: the dual common anode zener configuration shown above is electrically equivalent to a dual common cathode zener configuration


One way to find out would be to put a voltage meter on the sensor and one end in the water and see if there is any significant voltage between the sensor and the water. Probably the best thing would be a continuity check on the tank and the water. Get a bench supply and attach one end to a grounding rod nearby, then attach the other end to the top of the ...


It is doubtful that you damaged other devices plugged into the same power rail, but for you to be shocked by a capacitor must have required a high voltage on it which is not typical inside a games console unless it is in its power supply. That can be dangerous as the power supply capacitors may remain charged to a high voltage even if the console is ...
