A Mega-Zilla From Manzanita Micro
Okay, the guys over at Manzanita Micro are kind of mad-scientist-inventor-speed-freaks who should probably lay off the coffee for a bit before posting to Facebook, but what fun would that be? And yes, we stalk everybody on Facebook. But here’s what we saw the other day on their feed:
This is THE DC Controller that I have been dreaming about building since I took on the Zilla controller line. This is a 4000 amp 400 volt DC speed controller: 1.6 MW or 1,600,000 watts. that’s 2144 Hp should you have a battery and a motor that can live at this level.
It’s only 72 lbs, water cooled IGBT transistors, LOTs of copper for thermal hang time, and transfer. Like only copper can do.It’s good to be building The Big One again.
This unit is #2. Otmar built the first one 5 years ago. This one is about 90% together, it will run this week.
If someone tells you that you don’t need more power? Walk away. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
