EDOPS Control Panel

 

Well the control panel is looking a little more like it could control the EDOPS. It is pretty simple at the moment, from left to right......

1) Ammeter, donated by a distilling legend to me. Thanks!

2) 10000w scr to run one of the 3Kw elements.

3) On/Off for the second of the 3Kw elements.

 

The theory being that on heat up there is 6Kw, should be real quick in a 50ltr boiler. No problems with scorching or anything because the EDOPS is for spirit runs only. The DOPS is there for stripping with gas. Once it is up to heat I can knock the off button and muck about with the SCR till I get the sweet spot.

 

The ammeter will show the amps drawn with both elements on so I have an idea of the total draw and costs etc etc.

 

I suppose the next thing is to make a box to put this in and wire it up.. I guess that will be the next episode!
