Re: Suggestions needed for multi building Wi Fi expansion

Thank you !<p>I was looking at Proxim's point to multi point products, but not the Quick bridge line.
I did not know you could add remotes to it.
I thought it was only usable in pairs.<p>Thanks!!<p>David

Suggestions needed for multi building Wi Fi expansion

We are expanding our network to include WiFi. We want to connect several buildings together. With our main office being the "hub" Distances range from 300ft to more than 1000ft. Plus elevation changes. I'm leaning towards a one to many solution, like an ISP might use. Something with "client" hardwar...

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

I was out buying a breaker panel, etc. yesterday, and did not get a change to fire it up.<p>Thinking about a load, I need another base board heater for my basement, I think that should be a good resistive load.<p>........ more to come.

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

Gordon,<p>You are correct.
and that gives me a new question.<p>Home main breakers amp ratings.
If I purchase a "200 amp" main breaker.
Is that 100 amp per leg? 200 total
or 200 per leg?<p>thanks

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

would you say the distortion is caused by the brushes introducing noise into the DC excition field?<p>If so, normal wear would help?<p>David

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

LOL, Yes.<p>Right now I just cover it with a tarp. After I get some more done I will have an idea of how it should be shaped and air flow. The air compressor is in the way. So it will probably be in two parts. It really is a long work in progress.<p>I have several gauges, a contactor, E-Stop etc. st...

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

Well I'll have to think about what to load it with. Any suggestions? Lights seem too , well lite. As for use. I want both 120 and 240 @60hz. If you think about how your home panel box is wired. L1, L2, and neutral L1 120, L2 120 L1-L2 240 I intend on wiring an outdoor main breaker panel (Square D) m...

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

OK, here are the pictures. I did not shrink incase you need to zoom in on something.<p> Generator scope pictures <p>If you read the docs. then is this sine wave jaggedness caused by the rough (new) surface of the brushes, and slip rings? or is it a poor rectifier? or both?<p>Thanks for all your inpu...

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

It's a China special.LOL<p>My concern was THEY misconfigured it. It just throws me off that one winding is 60 hz, and the other is 120hz The Plasma cost $2,600.00 So you can see my aaaaaaa!!!! When the DMM read 60hz, and 120hz and 180hz<p>I hooked up an old scope (hard to remember how to use it)to h...

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

Chris,<p>No the Plasma does not use a high frequency start circuit. It is a Lincoln Procut 55<p>Generator, This is the 1st time I have ever started it. Prior to hooking anything up, I checked the voltage and frequency. Thats when I discovered this abnormality.<p>If it is just noise fooling my DMM ho...

Re: 24kw AC generator frequency problem

Dean,<p>Look at the owners manual for a circuit diagram. http://www.utterpower.com/ST_manual.pdf and http://www.utterpower.com/ST.htm for a good look at it's design, and slip rings.<p>If it is a nasty waveform, how can I clean it up? A Cap on the DC output side? and why is it only on winding #2? Als...

Re: Remote Control Lawnmower

I have never considered an all electric mower. I never know how high the grass is going to be. It could be hay !!! :) I am using a 8hp riding engine for a 21" blade. And If that won't do it I have a 16 HP twin waiting!<p>I have also never considered selling them.<p>Every mower I have made or am maki...
