Power distro board

Postby Ted » Sun Feb 12, 2017 6:46 am

Hello all
I have designed a power distro board
8 fuses each capable of 5 Amos max with a max of 30 amps on the board,
Each fuse has a led to let you know if the fuse is good or bad.
Board size is 50x80mm
They are currently getting shipped to me and once I have them I will post some pics. I will be selling these if people are interested

They use the mini car fuse so easy to get replacement of needed

I have seen your designs on facebook group. Nice work.
On a side note I downloaded Eagle a few months ago but think I should try and learn to use it!
Cheers.

eagle has taken two years of a little bit of use to finally get round to be able to create boards quickly and I eve had to create my own components for the boards this time as they were not on file :( that's was the hardest part to learn
there are videos out there that helped me and being able to get the exact dimensions for the components helped too
