Electrified

It's been a pretty good week.  It's pretty obvious that I won't be on the road in May.  How about June?

I don't have a picture, but the front motor mount is installed.  It was designed by Rob, machined by Larry, and installed by Greg.  I'll try to get a picture next week.  It's pretty!

In the photo below you can see that the cooling system is connected.  It's the bottle and gold thing to the right of the batteries.  Peter got it all hooked up and filled on Friday.


The other big accomplishment was to finish the high voltage wiring.  The box in the middle of the picture contains two safety switches to disconnect all of the high voltage and two relays which do the same except by computer control.  High voltage goes to the motor controller, the DC/DC converter, the two battery chargers, and the other battery boxes.

The big gold thing is a pre-charge resistor.  It keeps things from blowing up (sort of).


I ran all of the wiring in orange split loom.  That will protect it from vibration and wear.  It is probably overkill, but it seems like a good idea.
