Come on guys you're all being a little harsh.

Those are "structural welds" and they need not be pretty.
Fred I don't think those are vias, it looks to be welding splatter. In the likely advent that they are vias then its bound to be a very complex algorithm for reducing ground noise by confusing it.

In Rick's defense the calibration gas was probably used to produce those welds. Rick I've heard Methane works well as a shielding gas, try that next time you weld. Improvement guaranteed!

Credit where credit is due, it produces a range of numbers that vary with RPM (and sometimes without).

Uh oh, I have it, in 720p, and will have to re-host it for him. He must've had his account hacked or something...

I think that is not a real weld but a chemical weld using something like jbweld.

If you search the web and look at his ebay feedback, they are all positive. I still have the nagging question of perhaps it was user error on my part, but since he never responded to my offer of paying extra for a tested plug and play ready unit, I will not know with 100% certainty.

This controller is so bad that I would think that anyone who uses it in an actual engine will notice that it is crap, but no one notices.

Don't be silly, JBWeld is a quality product, and that is clearly not! :-p

Definitely jealous about the dancing thing. Actually, when I played it in bed this morning while the wife was getting ready to go to work, she stuck her head out of the bathroom and, paraphrasing, said "What the hell is that shit that you're listening to at this time of the morning?" :-)

LOL @ 10V, FreeEMS is good down to (below?) 6V, possibly as low as 5V if you're uber lucky.

Fred.

I would know about going under 5v as I set the alarm off on mine in the datalog for lower then 5v under cranking.

You hit ~5.412V (assuming it was calibrated or you used 0.1% resistors)

Rick just replied to the email I sent in may (he said they were changing over email servers and something happened to my email) , and he is sending a prewired and pretested unit to me to retest with my lab gas.

When I get it I will retest and post the results.

Regards,

Alan To
