Getting Ready for RZR Riding Season 2017
Installation of a Kimpex Expedition Trunk, Alba Racing Cam Tensioner, and rock sliders on the Polaris RZR S 1000.
RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 9 - DFM Final Testing.
Final testing with lightbar in the RZR 1000S.
RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 9 - DFM FInal Testing.
Design for Manufacture and Final Testing before swapping out V1 to V1.2 in the RZR 1000S.
RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 8 - Canbus R&D.
Earlier work on checking the CAN-BUS connection and signal on the RZR 1000S. I capture some traffic to ensure I can see at least the speed and gear selection for the new module to control the HCControl2.
RZR Mini Multiplexer Part 7 - Rework and Reuse of Prototype PCBs.
Rework of an early prototype to use with the canbus controller and to have an additional RS485 device on the bus. HCControl2 is in the RZR 1000 S at this point and replaced the relay for the lightbar and winch. I'll be adding reverse and rock lights soon to integrated with CanBus to enable turning on the reverse lights in reverse and auto rock lights on at low speed.
Aoyue 932 Vacuum Pickup Station Review
A quick look at the Aoyue 932 Vacuum Pickup Station. Cheap and available at Amazon. If you are placing SMD components this is a must have for quick and easy placement.
RZR Mini Multiplexing Part 6 - Testing inputs and validation of design.
Testing inputs of the prototype board to validate the design.
RZR Mini Multiplexing Part 5 - Building PCB's by hand with parts on both sides of the board.
In this video I build a prototype of the multiplexer board. Stencil process, placement and reflow of a double sided board with parts on both sides. PCB stenciling, placement and reflow by hand for the prototype process.
RZR Mini Multiplexing Part 3
This is a multipart series of design, prototype and build of a small multiplexing system for UTV's. Initially this will replace lighting and winch relays with solid state control. In this part 3, I go over the base software using OSX with the STM8.
