FERNANDO'S NOTES ON LV POWER DISTRIBUTION

PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION CABLING

  • Found suitable connector with 6 pins
  • HV
  • Ground
  • Signal
  • Problem: Flat cables interfere with HV cables --> shift connectors
  • Horizontal back chaining with shifted connectors
  • less work than connector on side, but more risky during assembly/disassembly
  • Three issues - most problematic: interference with HV cables
  • Discussion: can one cut connector
  • need only three pins, so maybe can cut to resolve interference with HV cables
  • Alternative: connector on the side
  • less risky
  • requires more work - have to make additional cables etc.
  • requires fabrication of 1000 flat cables and ~30 other cables - time estimate: ~3 weeks
  • PCB design time estimate: ~3 months (expect ready early 2022)
  • Action item:
  • write to DSG and ask if available to take on cable fabrication task
  • provide information on connector and placement to Fernando
  • Discussion: additional grounding
  • action item: investigate how this may be realized


NEXT MEETING: NPS MEETING ON THURSDAY 30 SEPTEMBER AT 9AM ET
