Lonestrom and I have been working on a power supply for our motos.
***Project has undergone a rather radical update since the initial post and you should read the thread to follow along.***
Specs have changed and are explained on page 4.
Final prototype with everything working. *3/23/2013*
Current Specs As of 3/3/2013:
8 software fused channels (8x15). 100A total current capacity. All channels with adjustable PWM (dimming). Two channels with programmable constant current. You will be able to control it from hard buttons mounted on your bike or from a smart phone.
***Old specs saved for posterity's sake***
8 fused channels (4x12A 4x6A). 40A total current capacity. 6 dimming channels so you can turn the heat down on your heated gear or dim your aux lights. You will be able to control it from hard buttons mounted on your bike or from a smart phone. You will be able to program it as well. An example program might be, when the ambient temp is <60F turn on heated gear power socket to 50% or when its <60F and I am going above 40 MPH or if its <50F turn it to 100%.
It has built in temp sensor, volt meter, ammeter. So your smart phone will be able to display your electrical systems real time status.
There is an optional audio sensor as well so you can fork your CB (walkie talkie) signal and when someone squawks on the CB it can mute your music player automatically. There is also an optional light sensor so you can adjust your aux lights based on ambient light levels.
It can sense the length of time you hold down one of the hard buttons as well. So, for example, you could set it up to blow an air horn if you hold the horn button down for more than a second. That way you can have your basic horn for polite signalling and also have a more serious horn if the situation warrant it. Or, maybe you can set it up so that a long press of a hard button will adjust the duty cycle of your aux lights so you can adjust their brightness with one finger.
Would y'all be interested in something like this? We are not selling anything currently, just curious if this idea is interesting to people other than us.
