Great work and design. Your CAD skills are way better than any architects that give us the plans to build from. Nice brazing as well.

I'm north east of Baltimore. When you get this thing further along, I'd love to see it in person.

Ditto on the CAD compliment!
Totally sick!

I think of CAD as playing with Legos for grown-ups, except that I also wouldn't mind just playing with Legos.

A lot of progress was made tonight on the PCU. All of the receptacles and indicators are mounted. SSRs and heatsink are firmly in place on top. And all of the internal components I have are mounted to the DIN rails.
The power and control signal entrances are not here yet, neither are my relays or terminal blocks. Waiting on a few more parts, hopefully arriving tomorrow or the next day. Then the wiring begins!

Here is the outside:


Inside:


And a closeup of the SSR heatsink mounting:


I still have room to grow with space for 3 more SSRs. That heatsink is a monster and makes the entire box weight a ton. Once I'm sure that I don't need to drill into this box anymore I'm going to shoot it with a black coat of paint.

I don't even understand what is happening around this forum anymore. I understand the function of the heat sink..... I at least got that one.

You guys are cracking me up. I meet requirement #1 and 7... can I still post?

I think requirement #8 should be disposable income or a love of being in dept due to a hobby.
And #9 should be a SWMBO who puts up with all this crap. (A Wit or Hefe every 3-4 batches and she puts up with me )

As long as you build one of these for me for free once when you are done building the prototype.

Yup....#9 is a must.

Oh yeah, you need to be a photographer and also be able to TIG weld.

Wow, you weren't kidding about "FULL-OUT"; really looking forward to following along! I will be interested to hear your thought on the level sensors. I have a few guided wave level probes available and am thinking about trying to incorporate one into a build. Your method may prove to be far easier. Keep up the great work!
