Open Source Inverter
Example alt text
Short description
Product Ecology 3D printing produces the plastic insulators and structure, Open Source Screw Machine (CNC Multimachine)) produces screws and heatsinks, Induction Furnace provides metal from scrap, such as Zinc-Aluminum Alloy. D3D CNC Circuit Mill can produce the circuits, such as for a Minimalist Arduino or an off-shelf Arduino Mega.
License OSHWA and OSI compliant. CC-BY-SA-4.0 International, GPLv3, DIN SPEC 3105.
Arduino Mega brain Mega with LCD is used as in Universal Controller
Power Modules Based on Power Panel concept of modular, air-cooled power transistor units.
Key Specification Scalability from 1-50kW
Construction 3D printed parts + COTS arduino, metal case. Terminal blocks for input and output. Cooling part is electrically isolated, via plastic base mount.
Productivity Relevant to small and large power applications from small off-grid power units such as the Solar Power Station to Open Source PV System, and power for larger, autonomous facilities.
Completion Status
Design phase, 2/21/21. See also Genealogeis and Status of Completion.
