CLOSED - Group Buy - Circlotron

Recommended Posts

GROUP BUY CLOSED 4. NOVEMBER 2015

 

For gauging interest. This GB is intended to be add-on to the MWL168 Carbon Group Buy for anyone interested in building a Circlotron.
In addition to a full Carbon, two dual HV900 boards (circlotronhvpowerdualnewer2.ZIP) and two output & driver boards (kgsshvcarboncirclotrondriverv2.ZIP/kgsshvcarboncirclotron.ZIP) are needed.

Currently investigating a quote form PCBNet for:

circlotronhvpowerdualnewer2.ZIP
kgsshvcarboncirclotron.ZIP
kgsshvcarboncirclotrondriverv2.ZIP

Furthermore FTCaps has been asked for delivery of the 470uF/550V caps required by the HV900 supply.
The main difference between the 680uF/550V(76mm) cap and the 470uF/550V(68) is the height, making it easier to fit everything inside a 5U chassie.
16 of 470uF/550V are needed for the Circlotron HV900 supplies.

Please state your interest in the sheet.
Price of the 470uF Caps, will be close to the estimate of 680uf/550V @ 12USD.

 

Estimated ship date from PCBNet rgrd the Circlotron boards 22 of september 2015

/Thanks

Thanks to S_R/NoPants for contributing

Boards has been shipped.
Update: 470uF caps are comming 13/11 (according to FTCap). (17/10-2015)

Won't it need the output boards, driver boards, and the HV900 boards? The driver board is different from the regular carbon amp board last I checked.

It might make more sense to offer the boards as a full set, but either way I'm interested.

a complete set of boards is

2 x output boards

2 x driver boards

4 x single hv900 power supply boards (or 2 duals which won't fit in a single box)

1 pair of fat power  450v supply boards (or the dual which also won't fit in the box)

should probably stick to a board set that will fit into a single chassis

 

I also believe the recommended chassis was 5U

Please state your interest in the sheet.

Quotes from PCBNet added to the sheet.
Summary if interest less than 10 Circlotrons the set price is approx. 150USD. If close to 20, the price of each set is 80USD.

Just to add, the HV900 boards should be the single type. So it'd be 4 HV900 boards per amp that way.

Also, could you offer the 450V fat/split PSU boards as well?

the circlotron is the only push pull fully direct coupled electrostatic amplifier that is buildable with current parts.

Also at 25ma, rise and fall time are faster than  any other electrostatic amplifier of any kind.

Quote from PCBNet.

The HV900 PCB has been changed from Dual to Singles, all amount in the sheet in rgrds to HV900 has been adjusted to x2 the previous.
Latest quote price has been entered as well, and an estimated price for caps+boards been calculated.

Please confirm your order in the sheet

The GB will be closing by the end of this week, and the order submitted to PCBNet (caps are already ordered by JDineshk)

Sorry for late responding on this.

The HV900 has been changed to singles as requested.

I'll add the fat/split PSU to the sheet to probe interest. we need at least 10 boards to make it fly.

It's 4 caps per single 900V supply of which you need 4 of.  So 16 total.  The fat power supply needs its own caps.

Sorry - I read for gauging interest, so I put my name down. I'm not ready to order - perhaps a later group buy. I'll take my name off as the order has been placed already.

Can there ever be MOAR after the Circlotrons are built?
