A teardown of a Danfoss VLT6000 4kW VFD, a run down of the current paths in the system and I show which parts I find to have a value.

I found a old 3.5" floppy drive cleaning kit and tried it out on a defective computer/floppy drive/floppy that I had. It would constantly ruin "new" disks and leave them with few kb of useful space.

YouTubes change from subscription to notification bell has had a huge impact on all channels, as they only themself estimate a average of maximum 30% of subscribers will actually get a notification due to people not updating their notification settings for all previously subscribed channels.

I myself have run through my entire subscription list and turned on notifications for all channels, as that was the reason I subscribed to them in the first place, I want to see the videos :) I know it can be used differently by browsing the subscription page and then only get notifications from a few select channels.

I made a little video about @Veritasium's algorithm analysis, @YouTubeHelp's notification system and analytics compared up against my own analytics.

I can get around 30 or more of these computers, new in bags, but the one I took with me home is a mystery to me and I can not make it run.

All I know about them is that they come from some sort of medical mobile solution. Marked with "PN04004002 PICUS VER 1.5" on the boards, only marking to give away sensible information, rest is just silkscreen for components.

It is a VIA VT82C686B CPU, has a CF-card with unknown content as I have misplaced my card reader, waiting for a new in the mail.

Black wires goes to a VGA port, white wires to a serial port.

I guess the black pin header is a button/LED connector, but I had no luck trying to start it that way, it connects to a P89LPC931 single-chip microcontroller. Other white headers sit near RS232 ICs.

I fed it 5V and 2 LEDs will slowly blink, but they blink faster and faster at higher voltages. 9V and its fast, 12V and it does not light up anymore. I assume it takes 5V from some markings near the connector and capacitors are only rated for 12V. In the middle of the board there is a unpopulated part where it says 12VDC.

I always knew that a circular saw is no joke and a kickback can quickly cost you a finger, broken bones, internal bleeding, cuts or just bruises.

I wanted to do some speed measurements from use of high speed camera and lately I had a little time to set this experiment up.

The result is that a 142g piece of wood is accelerated to 72 km/h in a mere 5 ms, so if it hits you, it is with a force of 112kg at impact (on 5 sq.cm).

EDIT: Speed difference is not speed as I used it in the video, that was an error.

Stay safe!

I could write a long motivational letter about the importance of teaching on electronics with all its basic trades of logical thinking and scientific methods, but instead I will leave you with the happy face of a 5 year old that completes her first little project :)

My first DRSSTC had a unfortunate and not-so-dramatic failure. I suspect in-adequate grounding from the coils grounding bar to ground to be the culprit, I will know more once I take the old bridge apart.

Silent death during a MIDI playback, once power is turned back on, the bridge short circuits and burns outs. I quickly changed it to a SKM200GB123 inverter bridge that I had around, built for another experimental project, hence why its a little crude.

It took 3-4 evenings/nights to locate all the faults, replace parts and get it running again. I am happy.

Can you guess the song that was played?

Voltage Multipliers / Russian Marx generator test center torn down
« on: February 06, 2019, 08:45:25 PM »
This is a sad occasion to look at a huge Marx generator in Russia that has been torn down to make space for a shopping centre. Luckily a few Russian high voltage enthusiasts managed to save as many toroids and capacitors as they could drag away in a large trailer.

First post will be the before pictures and the second the after pictures.

General chatting / Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
« on: December 23, 2018, 09:54:27 AM »
I would like to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all that celebrates and for the rest, have a great holiday if that is what you enjoy at this time of year :)

It has been a wonderful year on HVF and I am happy about the community quality and slow growing progress that makes us all able to know each other and the projects.

I recorded a small Christmas/New Year greetings video for my own youtube channel.

I wish you all the best for 2019!

X-ray / Siemens Polyphos 30 xray machine
« on: December 19, 2018, 08:35:32 PM »
I got hold of this decommissioned xray machine, which also has quite a few years on its back. All cables cut, missing most of the mechanical parts and motors for adjusting head/table. Missing remote control and possible some external power supplies.

What surprised me the most was the wire-wrapped backplane!

I will do a video walk-through of the system once I know some more about it, hopefully I can find a manual, but it does not seem like it floats all over the internet for that model.

Enjoy :)

The RRU3928 is an outdoor remote radio unit. It processes baseband and RF signal data. With the Software Defined Radio (SDR)technology, the RRU3928 supports the dual-mode operation of any two modes of GSM, UMTS, and LTE through software configuration modification. RRU3928 has a dual-transmitter and dual-receiver structure, which supports higher output power and carrier capacity.

It can f.ex. do 6x GSM carriers at each 10 Watt and 1x LTE carrier at 2x10 Watt or 4x GSM carrier at each 10 Watt and 2x UMTS carriers at 2x20 Watt.

This is the initial teardown and later on I will release part 2 which is the circuit analysis video.
