Hi everyone,

I know this has been asked before, and you have commented time and time again - but my short term memory needs to be upgraded, due to many kernal failures

So, once again I would like to poll the audiance for any ideas as to what types of electrical stuff you would like to see a Schematic posted for.

It will take a few weeks, so be paitient.

Feel free to send ideas to me directly by E-Mail [adst at SoCA dot com, or adst at pacbell dot net]. Otherwise leave a post to this topic.

BTW: The Panel Schedule worked out sort of OK in the Tech Ref section. I need to do some fancy pants stuff to get them on-line, but in the meantime, let me know if you are interested in these. They use Excel 97

Funny you should ask, I was just thinking about this today.

I'm interested in the schematic/operation of a rotophase unit used to derive three phase power from a single phase service.

They are very common here on irrigation machines. If there is no three phase line nearby it is much cheaper to install a rotophase than run a high voltage line several miles.

thanks for asking,


I look at most all of the schematics that you post. I don't always post a comment unless I have a specific question. Don't conclude that just because you don't get a lot of feedback or questions that your schematics aren't of value. They are a great educational tool.....keep up the good work.

This is my "me too" to GJ's post script. If I don't comment that means that I appreciated it but didn't have any question.

If I comment, that means that I appreciated it and would like more information about it.
