LEM DHAB hall effect sensors

Folks, Has anyone dealt with those ? I'm thinking about using one for TinyBMS, which is originally intended to go with 750A version of LEM sensor (DHAB S/133). It is much cheaper to acquire 200A versions of LEM sensors, and it would be sufficient for my applications. Now the way I understand it, tha...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Give up ?, well that is pretty nearly the attitude of many scientists that try to study the CO2 cycles.. After 30 years of measurements, the ocean carbon community is realizing that tracking human-induced changes in the ocean is not as easy as they thought it would be. It wasn’t a mere matter of me...

Ask yourself where the vast majority of CO2 is contained, and what might cause it to release more !
Hmm.... the ocean ? But the concentrations in the ocean have been increasing, not reducing... I give up!

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

We DO NOT KNOW that human initiated CO2 is the cause of increasing concentrations in the atmosphere... ......it is only ASSUMED to be so. There is plenty of evidence to disprove that assumption. I will bite one more time :) So if deforestation and burning of fossil fuel don't result in increase of ...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

We know for a fact that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. High school level experiments can prove this. We know for a fact that we have been increasing CO2 concentrations in our atmosphere. Simple math proves this - backed up by regular measurements of CO2 levels. We know for a fact that temperature has bee...

So no more additional new bridges, or buildings, railways, shipping, wind turbine towers, etc etc..

It matters when humans and other living things must share the road, and the world, with you. Don't you worry, most of my commuting is done on two wheels :) On top of the huge kinetic energy and accompanying hazard required to move a relatively small payload, there's the irrefutable fact that it tak...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

The problem with recycling is the amount of energy it needs. It takes a lot less energy to melt steel than to make steel from iron oar. Lithium batteries aren't really recycled these days, mostly put in giant piles for us to figure out what to do with later ( if ever ). Most of the Lithium batterie...

Show where the electricity-prices at the meter have changed by +100%, when corrected for inflation, during the last 5 years. You should be able to show "many"?

Our culture is actually the core of our problem. It's not some kind of fall from grace to be a little more conservative with our footprint. We're just spoiled brats when it comes to energy.

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

You can't have solar power systems without panel (or mirror) deliveries. So it's a similiar issue. It is not a similar issue. There is initial construction (prior to operation), and then there is operation when power is being generated. Every type of generating facility has a construction phase whi...

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Well, you counted coal deliveries, so seems valid . . . Again, there is a difference. Coal delivery is an integral part of a coal fired power plant. Without coal delivery a plant can't function. Solar obviously doesn't have such pre-requisite. To make it a fair comparison you have to look at it thr...
