I just don't see the necessity of putting wattmeter in Your set up, It's just valuable to measure what currents flow in the circuit/ how many mAh You use per distance. Simple voltage/ battery capacity meter is fine for average user in my opinion.Trbt555 wrote:I'm planning on removing my wattmeter and putting in a simple voltage display viewable when riding. More details to follow when I receive the hardware.
Sand blasting I just like this surface finish, I use it a lot in my knives (You can check out my instagram, link in the signature) so it was natural to use it here too Aluminium was treated the same way.randyc1 wrote:Question Squad:
Your 3mm motor mount , you said it was stainless steel , ..why is it light grey, was it primmed ?
Hey Squad are you still think about making those Boosted looking compartments? I'd love to buy a set.Squad wrote:
Thanks, the board is currently out of order... I had lipo failure quite some time ago and will be making complete rebuild of this board with 18650 li-ons, with some other modifications. I did not had any problems with heat dissipation,michaeletsmith wrote:Howdy gentlemen.
I'm new to the game of electric boards. Busy working on my first build.
This one is very impressive!
I notice there isn't much concern given to air flow in the design of the enclosures. Even the original boosted board has heat sinks on the motor-side housing. Is temperature gain not much of an issue here? What has your experience been?
I would like the .pdf traces please email them to me to firstname.lastname@example.orgSquad wrote: ↑Oct 06, 2015 5:48 amFirst of all it's not my antispark switch design , I made the pcb using laser printer and chalk paper, heat transfered the trace-mask with iron, then etched it with ferric chloride. I added 2 more FET's parallel to those two on the scheme, BUT now I would just buy one high current FET like IXFN200N07 (the same price range as my 4 FET's). If You're interested I have .pdf traces layout for the boards I built, write PM if You want it.akiraEC wrote: Great built !
Very interrested by your antispark design.
The schematic you show has only two FETs right ?
If you would agree to share the 4 FET schematic and/or the PCB design, I'd love to make one for my board !!
