Moving to a new lab!
« on: February 16, 2018, 08:55:47 AM »
Follow me as I move from my old small 10 sq.m. lab to a new 20 sq.m lab and with additional 20 sq.m work shop.

This is part 1 in a series of videos on moving out, moving in and setting up the new lab / work shop.

I am moving out of the apartment and into our own house, which has a room dedicated to the laboratory and a work shop for rough work.

You really need more space :)

Will get the video link to watch on the faster internet.

But anyway, going from 10m2 to 20 is very good.

The maximum I have here is 18 I think. But after I crowded the space with transformer, old motors and some cheap tools, there is around 12m2 left.

Here you get a short glimpse of the new space for lab and work shop.

This is part 2 in a series of videos on moving out, moving in and setting up the new lab / work shop.

Nice. You have more space there. I'm not the biggest fan of the gothic style, but it seems you are not too. :P

By the way, today I finished changing the light bulbs here for LED. Some warm colors, and some intense white for working areas. It really makes a lot of difference. The best one by far is the LED tube, they are just like "old" fluorescent lights. Maybe that can help you a lot. These new lights are a lot better to work at night. Now I can work for some time instead of wanting to take a nap due to the low lights I had before. When I first heard about these led lights I was like "mehhhhhh", but I have to admit some are really good.

I use very cheap shelves here. I would cut 0,5 - 1cm of the back legs, then they will lean back. Or you could screw the top of the shelve to the wall too.

Congratulations on the extra space!   A little unsolicited advice perhaps.  Keep space between shelves and boxes so you can check for critters that like to take residence in boxes and make sure there's no fire hazards, especially from leaking oil or solvents or lots of loose paper.   In the basement, keep the bottom shelves perhaps 15-30 cm off the ground in case there is flooding or standing water, being lowland Denmark I suppose that's a possibility.  Make sure the sump pump (basement well pump) is working, and maybe get one with a battery backup or replace the battery in case you lose power in a storm.

72 Watt LED is quite a lot of light, I bought four 14 Watt LED tubes for the garage, just to get some normal go through / find stuff light and then I will add some extra work lights at the table and machinery.

Good advice on the shelves/racks distance between them, instead of filling up a wall completely and there is no chance to see what is going on behind them.

There is no sump pump in this house, so we are battling moist in the basement by heating and ventilation. I will of-cause keep anything of special value above table height :)

If you keep all your valuable gear 30 cm or so off the floor, you can put a pump in the basement, and it might save you in the case of flooding.  Many of these pumps switch on automatically when they are in a few cm of water, so if you are not home, it will kick in and start pumping.  I have seen too much valuable stuff get ruined this way.

Part 3 is online, it has been hard work to get the house ready for moving in and moving the lab/electronics stuff took way more time than imagined and there was endless amounts of stuff to move :)

Let me know when you have your yard sale, I'd like to look over your collection of doomsday devices. :)

One question, why the name kaizerpowerelectronics?

Keep an eye on the sales subforum, if that ever happens ;)

As a young teenager I was a huge fan of this Norwegian band https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaizers_Orchestra and I went by the nickname Mads Kaizer, so when I wanted a domain for my electronics site, that was my first thought.

Part 4 is here, after a long break due to business travel and more house building. I now have the work shop in a state where I can use my bench and the lab is getting populated soon.

I like it that you have "Lightning and Power installed" - more appropriate than normal Lighting :P

Nice equipment!  How do you like the Rigol scope?  I was going to get one but I heard some mixed reviews.

Did you ever get the solar panels set up?

I am very satisfied with the DS1054z, when I bought it on offer from Batronics at release there was no other alternatives with such a feature pack at 300€, bigger is of-course always better but at the end of the day, the display and speed it plenty for my work.

I picked up my solar cells from storage a couple of weeks ago, I am waiting for ordered connectors and to find some batteries for the bank. I got a charger from Victron, I will update the solar cell thread once I got some more to tell :)

That Rigol was probably the best value low end scope up until a year or so ago, but I'd look at the 4 channel Siglent SDS1000X-E units as an alternate option now - have not used one but it sounds like there are some very significant improvements vs the Rigol for not much more money.

After seeing the Rigol MSO5000 series on eevblog today, if you have 999$+239$ for waveform generator... thats one hell of a 4ch scope.
