maybe you guys can give a few idea's
the car a far from finished but I think the grafix on the back glass will give me a since of purpose, incentive to keep pushing everytime I look at it.
I wish I could of wrote all these on my build page to keep it up dated , but how do you keep responding to a comment from another page? hehe
well keep it up guys, chat at yea later

Hey Louie,

I thought that the larger ones might be kinda steep. Im sorry. I dont make the price really. The guy with the cutter does. Hes giving us a really good deal. Its only a few cents above material cost per inch. He has to include wear on the blades and labor for preparing it out of the machine.

My wedsite is updating now. If you go to www.EVVette.com you will see a Revolt Decals section. From there you can select your size and add it to the PayPal cart.

Adam, you could do the same for the VLA500-01 IGBT driver integrators group buy $$ deposits.
I guess at this point that to cover the minimum quantity order will be impossible, please inquire about a single unit price.

Good job Mark!

Looks like they have 15 in stock!

We can easily get 5 modules grouped. I will add another section to my site and people can get them from there. I will order then and then ship the out.

I just have to figure in a small amount for shipping from Richardson Electronics to me.

If this all sounds good I will set it up.

-Adam

Shipping is $5.20 inside the US and $13.95 International.

I have a question about IGBT's. looking at data sheets under applications some are for ac motor drive and some are for dc motor drive. what is the difference inside the IGBT?
Not that I am going to put another controller together.

Hi Alvin! Some igbts have 2 in one package, that are in series. It makes it really easy to use 3 of those to form a 3 phase bridge, which is basically the power section of a 3 phase AC controller. Other igbts are just a single transistor, which would probably be used in a DC controller, although you could also just use 6 of those in a 3 phase AC controller.

We also need a control board that has a 15v supply that shares the ground with the 5v supply, and we need the control board to do something with the desaturation fault signal from the igbt driver board.
