Well, I have to finish putting the stuff into the control section. I'm very confident that the software is working as it should. There's definitely room for improvement, though. I need to add the thermistor, and basically finish plugging in all the stuff to the breadboard.

I still need to test the hardware overcurrent shutdown. I'll have to fake the signal for overcurrent.

Then I'll test the control circuit with everything except the connection to the power section. (everything including the mosfet driver)

Once that's working OK, I'll make the single final connection from the control section to the power section, and that's it!

Then, once that's working OK, I'll move the bread board stuff over to a permanent board that is on order. I'll have to be really really really careful not to do anything stupid at that point. Then it's done! ya!

That is amazing! I like that box, and the controller is really coming along

Keep going, and I can't wait to see the results.

Most of the mess of that is from the In System Programming wires. It's really not that bad, I swear. After all the work of getting the whole circuit together for testing the control board, I found out that the breadboard is no good. It has several spots where it's not connected correctly inside. I'll get another one tomorrow. If you ever see a really really great deal from China on Ebay, don't buy it. The chinese prisoners don't have the strength and motivation to do really high quality work.

Basically, I spent SEVERAL hours meticulously putting together that circuit... The Chinese Government caused it not to work... Basically, I'm pretty mad at China right now. Not as mad as the Dolly Llama, but still... hehe.
