Open Source DC controller

mcudogs I am a complete novice so do not know how you make the power board, I understand that Paul is using a mill machine, it would be a bit unreasonable to ask him to mill the boards for everone who wants one. If you are able to produce them here in aus that would solve one problem that I can thin...

Open Source DC controller

That was me doing the aussie dollars on the forum, I have now converted the whole list to AU$ and not counting the boards it came to $250, I may have missed or guessed a couple that they did not have part Nos for. Looking around here in aus the parts seemed to be more expensive or they would not sel...

Camira Conversion

Woody Type Paul and Sabrina's into google and you will get their forum. They are on the last leggs of a open source free 144volt controller, it has got so good that I am sure that it has outstripped any thought that Paul originally had when he started the thread. I can't understand most of it but wh...

I have never received any benifit grant rebate or assistance from any government. For the Pholtovoltaic rebate you need to purchase and install a complete system, I have bought panels as we could afford them starting in the early eightys. I suggested to the state government that there should be spec...

Camira Conversion

Hi Johny Yes there is a bit of a gap, late October I searched for a rust free Camira I chose Camira as they have a history of problems which should have made a good one cheap - I wanted a reasonably sized car as I have a number of grandchildren to fill the back seat, Early November I stripped the en...

These parts included a 9 inch advanced DC motor, Curtis controller, 12 twelve volt supe...
