A big thank you to Richard (mole42uk) for the Solar inverter.

A fascinating piece of equipment beautifully built.

I am still figuring out how it works but it is certainly keeping me busy!

Thanks Richard!

Re: The Thanks Thread
 
Quick summary: You feed stable AC into the AC input/output, and random DC into the DC input. The inverter draws as much power as it can from the DC source (it continuously monitors the voltage and current, and adjusts the resistance it presents so as to deliver maximum power) and pumps this power onto the AC output, exactly in sync with the crests and troughs of the applied waveform. If there is no external voltage applied, it goes into shutdown; this is intended to protect anyone working on the power circuits from a shock, although of course you should still disconnect it properly if you know you are going to be doing so.

I have just stumbled across this thread and would like to add a belated thanks to Ti Pwun who very kindly sent me some coil formers FOC.

What a great resource this forum is.

Just thanks to all members for puting up with my ramblings and, sometimes, my 'iggernorant' questions.
And for the freebees, donations of bits & pieces & moreover, great advice.

All the best !

Many thanks to 'greenkit' for the beautiful HP3770B Telephone Line Analyser. It arrived in good condition, looks to be complete and has more internal options than I was expecting. This is going to give me hours of entertainment.

Thank you to John (kan_turk) for the Practical Integrated Circuits book. Basic stuff but definitely a useful addition to the electronics book collection.

My thanks to Mark Hennessey for his noble attempts to help me repair an Acoustic Solutions LCD monitor / T.V. Ultimately, my repair attempts were unsuccessful, but that's not the point of this post.

Many thanks to 60 Oldjohn for sending me a small sample of Rocol Kilopoise damping grease. This has enabled me to establish that it works a treat in repairing the damped tape tension arm on a Revox A77. Otherwise I would have had to buy the viscous fluid version at much greater cost, without knowing if it would work.

Cheers to you John :beer:

Thanks to Mike (coil1234) for the FOC NAD 4020A tuner, which finally completed its convoluted journey to me today. The packing was amazing for an FCS transfer - I'd be interested to see how he packs stuff that actually has to be posted! :)

Thanks also to Guy (Nymrod121) for organising the FCS arrangements and dropping it off at Oxford M40 services for me today. Much appreciated.

Big thanks from me to 'fetteler' for rummaged out the two LP Mullard FM modules for Ash and giving them to him. Ash said it was like 1973 all over again, when he last bought a pair. Hope to meet you when he drops your parts off for you.

Many thanks to yestertech for sending me an EEV camera tube in its original storage box, complete with (unused!) warranty claim card.

A great bit of Waterhouse Lane nostalgia ... my old school chum Bob Tokley was EEV's camera tube guru for many years and I visit him every so often. He'll be delighted to see it :thumbsup:

Cheers
