AC Controller boards

Paul - I see the bare AC controller boards on your site.

Do you have an option to populate the board but no IGBTs and no ring cap? If not, please add my name to the list of people who would like this as a product.

I had mentioned that I have a large number of industrial VFDs that need brain transplants. The IGBTs and caps are fine. The control boards have lost regulators, their Inputs have blown up, maybe the DC/DC is cooked, etc. And they were a PITA to program even when they were running.

If it takes a group of us to make a decent quantity order, so you can get reasonable pricing on the parts, what would that quantity be?

I have about 25 VFDs needing their new brains but my wife would resist buying all of the control boards at the same time ... and it would take me 2 years to get them all installed!

Last question - any plans to use the AC controller to do an off-grid AC inverter sized for a house? On paper, the AC controller board *SHOULD* have the hardware to do it ...
