Thank you! :)

I'll have to go into my archive or redraw it. The original post didn't look so compressed, like the thumbnail.

It looks like you have the control kit from malectrics.eu, KaeptnBlau. Did you know KWeld makes an UltraCap kit to drive their control unit, also? It's not too expensive, and it works very nicely.

Hey there,

I actually spoke with him via email on the topic beforehand. This was about 18 months ago, we were discussing a capacitive discharge model. (EDIT: Using a supercap array in place of LA/SLA/Li-Ion) This was before I ordered the boards from him. I wanted to be sure that his MOSFET array could handle 1kA+ burst current if I wanted to do so. It worked great, I informed him, it's entirely possible that I sparked the idea in his head.

He is a nice man with electronic talents for sure. Anyone reading this, you can feel good about his supplies and equipment.
