  1. GimmieFuzz79 replied to the thread Coil Question.

    The machine is up and running well. A few testers have been made and though functional they aren't exactly efficient. Currently decoding...

  2. GimmieFuzz79 liked Minder's post in the thread Coil Question.

    You say you have a machine capable of it, is it set up for winding now or are you thinking of designing a new system entirely? M.

  3. Minder replied to the thread Converting an electronic cooling fan to battery operated.

    It says 120VAC 60Hz right on it, it is a shaded pole induction motor. M.

  4. Nb778 attached a file to the thread Trumps solar wall, forget politics we should just build the thing.

    That was just a Teaser for the Fake Media and liberals. This is what is actually being developed. HE Came up with this idea too of...

  5. Minder replied to the thread TRIAC TESTING.

    @polyal BTW, the method I showed for testing comes from the GE SCR/TRIAC Experimenters Manual. M.

    That's one important one. If you're using atmel chips, check out the Avr127 application note. Even if you're not it still may be helpful.

  7. (*steve*) replied to the thread TRIAC TESTING.

    Best thing is to test them. An SCR has a diode junction between the gate and cathode. A trial is sort of like a pair of SCRs in...

  8. BobK replied to the thread Converting an electronic cooling fan to battery operated.

    That looks like a pretty standard size cooling fan. Most of that type of fan run off DC, either 5V or 12V. Is there any reason you...

  9. Nb778 replied to the thread 2 Portable generators.

    Yes the GND and NEU are connected at the main outside panel. Then there is a sub-panel inside the house where the GND and NEU split of...

  10. BobK replied to the thread 2 Portable generators.

    You do realize that the neutral and ground wires are connected together at the distribution panel. Bob

  11. Minder replied to the thread TRIAC TESTING.

    Simple way to test a triac under power is use a 6v - 12v transformer and hook a suitable lamp and the triac up in series across the...

  12. Hoobbyy_Engineer replied to the thread ADC Hold and Sample.

    So the correct parameter to find this charging time for the capacitor is Acquisition Time,right?

  13. polyal replied to the thread TRIAC TESTING.

    thanks for that are you saying that these devices are OK? although the 0.4 volts drop ( 100ohms ) is both ways so its seems its not the...

  14. Externet replied to the thread Replacing light bulbs with LED's for illuminating a radio's scale.

    AC reaches peaks (and valleys) of 1.41 times RMS = 14.1 Volts. for the 10 Volts AC. Nothing wrong with asumming 10% extra if secondary...

  15. (*steve*) replied to the thread TRIAC TESTING.

    It's a bit tricky to see in the TRIAC, but in the SCR it is obvious there is a diode junction between the gate and the cathode. The...
