Build diary update - Sourcing Parts
It is the most time taking task, also frustrating. We have been trying to follow the specs as closely as possible for the electronics component. Right now we are unable to move forward because of signal board. We have got about 70% of the components required for signal board but a few are still missing.I hope we will be able to finish by next week. Ordering sensors was easy and they were available through ebay, aliexpress from HongKong/China. For pumps, fans, connectors, wires, LED heating unit and cooling unit we sourced from local electronics market in Mumbai. They don’t have exact parts but on some search we were able to find close enough alternatives. We got those parts for very less as compared to price in the BOM.
These are most of the parts we have, some of them are at Makers Asylum, makes space where we do laser cutting, welding, machining and other heavy duty work.
Closer Look on electronics and sensors
Power Supply, pumps, fans, wires, connectors etc.
In next post i will update on signal board, acrylic cutting and modifying the design of PFC 2.0 according to the components and frame.
