Shopping thread
« on: October 25, 2015, 01:43:07 PM »
So, went shopping at my favourite shop, also known as the scrapyard. Went there with a lot of scrap, and this came home with me, amongst other things.

Control board out of a rather large LG inverter air conditioner, slightly used, slightly cooked.

First off the filter board, with around 1kg of copper in those toroid filters. See if you can spot where the dead compressor blew out a trace.

Just for variety, my orchid is nearing the end of it's flowering season........

The crispy outpout filter area.

The main board, where it is slightly damaged, but all I was interested in is getting the current sensors off the board. Might be useful as test parts, and the 8000uF of Samyoung capacitors might be useful. Monster IGBT block underneath will be taken apart and put under the microscope later.
