Coutesy Otmar Ebenhoech and Electric Vehicle Components Limited: EVCL For those of you who don't know Otmar is the Daddy of the 1/3 MEGAWATT!! Godzilla Controller. He also wishes to die silently like his Grandfather who was asleep at the wheel instead of screaming in terror like his grandfather's passengers! :-) Here's the lastest info on availability of the Power Pak and AVCON inlets: Power Paks will be ready to ship by the end of January. The only holdup has been that Avcon has been waiting for some Underwriters Lab (UL) stickers. The order form is being reproduced again at the end of this posting. The best deal will be for those who wish to form mini-buying groups for group purchases of three Power-Pak/Inlet sets. The price then drops to $250 for the Power Pak and $150 for the Inlet. (A far cry from the $3000 cost talked about earlier on the EV List). Each Inlet comes with a small electronic package which provides the pilot circuit. It consists of two resistors, a cap, a diode and a switch, and is installed between the pilot pin on the inlet and the vehicle chassis ground. The inlets come in three flavors, front, side and rear mount. These designations do not apply to where the inlets are mounted on the car, but rather the locations of the mounting holes on the inlets. The inlets can be mounted under a hinged grill, under a bonnet hood, behind a fuel filler door, or inside a motor or battery compartment. The most convenient location, of course, would be behind a fuel filler door. To see pictures of "refueling" using the Avcon connector, take a look at the EVAOSC website. Warning big graphics. The Power Pak is fully compliant with NEC Article 625 and meets all safety requirements of the Code. You will still have to supply your own on-board 220 VAC charger. The Electric Vehicle Conductive Charging Coalition (EVC3) has gone to great lengths to make this package available to hobbyists and private EV owners at a very reasonable cost, considering the extensive safety features and potential future advantages, including the ability to utilize public charging stations. A very substantial subsidy is involved. Otmar and I feel it's too good a deal to pass up, and we're going to be the first kids on the block to have the system. Of course, there's no great urgency, unless you're into electrical safety (and who shouldn't be!); the offer is good until the end of 1999. And those who have 110 VAC chargers might consider upgrading to 220 VAC plus the Power Pak.
