Looks like an ex demo car is up for sale here in Perth. Shame I have already paid a deposit on a white one at $50k.

Re: Prelude conversion project - some questions

OK so a bit of a nuisance problem with the drive contactor. Sticking is bad enough, but it seems to be causing grief now. Francess said she took off up a slight hill and felt the drive drop out. She turned it all off, and the auxiliary circuit supplying the green LED was open. Well that's one way to...

Re: Simple Precharge Circuit

Seems as good a spot as any to bring this up, but the brand new GV240 contactor in the Prelude is sticking from time to time. Seems to be a bit variable though. Sometimes it sticks and other times it doesn't. The rear pack contactor is stuck and won't get off, presumably because the A/C capacitance ...

Re: Is anyone using an arc welder with an offgrid system

Hopefully this is a useful place to put my query, considering if actually involves welders on battery-backed solar homes (but not off grid). I'm considering a 10 kW hybrid inverter (transformerless) for my home, but in the shed I like to stick-weld, angle-grind and cut stuff with a honking big 2400 ...

Yes they will probably be nickel plated so won't need much preparation. The contact grease is always a good move.

Francess dropped in this afternoon to get the last few minor quibbles sorted before it goes over the pits next week. The main job was swapping out the drive contactor to a GV240 with auxiliary contacts so I can put a green LED in the cabin to indicate that the car is ready to drive. In the process o...

Re: electric lawn mower

Terry, I borrowed a friends corded chainsaw last weekend to bring down a weedy tree behind the house. Brazilian pepper tree. Made light work of it and was worth 150 bucks new. I would definitely recommend you stick with corded chainsaws unless the job absolutely necessitated cordless.
