Open Source Inverter
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.|
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|
Based on Power Panel concept of modular, air-cooled power transistor units.|
Scalability from 1-50kW|
3D printed parts + COTS arduino, metal case. Terminal blocks for input and output.|
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.|
Design phase, 2/21/21. See also Genealogeis and Status of Completion.|
