Finally finished reading this entire tread. 7281 posts! Very impressive. Looks like I have found the right controller for my future EV. Now I'm off to read some of the related threads.

I'd like to build this controller. Is there still a link to a kit somewhere? I thought I saw one before but now I can't find it again. #shouldabookmarkedit
Thanks

Here's Paul and Sabrina's web site

https://pandspowerelectronics.ecwid....rds/c/16287307

Hmm. No kits that I see.

The bare boards are listed. I think it comes with a link to a bill of materials .. it used to. You'll need to make the mount for the heat sink, the cover, etc

You can buy the newer 1000A version there as well. Control board only, you'll have to supply the IGBT, heat sinks, etc.

It's been a while since Paul was on the board. Not sure how quick his response to emails will be, but he's always responded to my emails ..

Schematic Links

Good day All
I have found this post from the instructable link. I want to build one of these, or to be more specific I am first costing everything to convert a car to a EV. I see all the schematic links is broken even on the Revolt wiki page. So I guess this is not completely open source any more or the links moved.

I would not mind buying the bare PCB's from Paul since this will be cheaper than manufacturing it myself and also supporting him for all his hard work. But with no schematics or BOM I will not be able to cost my project and see if I will go ahead. As well as a electronic enthusiast I like to know the operating principal and some details. I have most of the power electronic parts and capacitors lying around, so it is more the electronics and circuit I need.

Would any one still have a link to the schematic and BOM?

Hello! Yes, I'm sorry I've been busy with work and life. I sold my milling machine, so I can't drill the metals, but I can provide all the other info, including software, bom, etc... for the 500amp controller.
