I went through my backups - I don't have the .sch or .pcb files for the DC controller. If you find them, can you shoot them to me?

Sorry, I wasn't paying attention to board revision in question. Previously quoted advice was for older 500A control board which comes ready for resistive type throttle. I've tried both igbt and mosfet firmware on same controller Both worked fine but mosfet version (16kHz) was more quiet.

If there are already instructions ... and I just need to follow them ... can you post a link? Or is this in the WIKI?

EDIT: I ask since RTD Explorer does not exactly work with the IGBT version as yet.

Here is the post from Paul where he explained the Hall Effect modifications to the igbt controller board before:

Hi Paul
Yes the Controller is working great. I have about 12K miles on it now and it has never let me down at all.

The controller is very meaty compared to other controllers I have owned. It makes for a better drive, and I have great confidence in it.

Here's a new board for the high powered IGBT DC controller:


Back:


Then, you just plug it into 3 IGBTs. Well, they evidently also have IGBT modules where the high side is your normal igbt, and the low side is just the diode. Notice the connectors are all standard spade crimp on, so you don't have to deal with those little crimp pins.

Paul, the PCBoard you are showing is not listed in your web store.
Is it available for sale/purchase?????
