    Re: Clamp Meter for DC amp readings

    Nope, wonít work for DC only AC.

    Itís a transformer function. Requires fluctuating magnetic flux.

    What you are attempting is a transformer. Only works with AC, not DC.

    Re: Clamp Meter for DC amp readings

    You take a reading, store it and then take another reading. The meter displays the difference between the two readings.

    Very handy for looking for things like volt drops. Once you have taken the...

    Let me tell you a funny story. (Well I thought it was funny at the time)

    That actually looks very good.

    Relative mode can be very handy - my one doesnt have that.

    Are you sure the CLAMP does DC Current ?

    Do you have a Model number.

    Uys that meter cant measure DC with the Clamp. Thais the trap I was referring to in my other post.

    Dont get an industrial size one designed for big equipment. It will be inacurate at the currents and voltage we use.

    Re: Clamp Meter for DC amp readings

    Firstly

    BEWARE - All clamp nearly meters will say AC/DC on them. That refers to the meters wire probes, NOT the clamp function.

    People get caught by this often, in fact even the salemen in the...

    With the system drawing current, just probe with a DVM until you find the problem.

    Re: How many amps from national luna box

    Its important to realise that once the NL Solenoid operates the connection between your charging system (car battery) is simply and really just a piece of wire.

    So the NL system has zero, niks,...

    Re: Electric off-road

    Yep sort of.

    There is a sliding scale between true Diesel Electric and true Electric only.

    And a lot comes down to duty cycle.

    Re: Electric off-road

    Here is the thing.

    There is a very loosely linked relationship between the Kw of the Gennie and the motors.

    Primarily because one is peak/max rated and the other continious/average rated.

    One of the reasons for on the go self leveling is dynamic changes in load mass. Like cornering and braking and accelerating.

    But yes, I know you proposed a simple system.

    So lets start with...
  15. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Yes pushing buttons is simple. Making the buttons do the job is where the fun starts.

    Getting the right amount of air in there is the real scary part.
  16. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Here is a simple air suspension system that works.

    How do I know it works. Because it is the emergency bypass mode in my P38 air system.

    Use a common and garden car tyre pump, and use a tape...

    Aay - ya - ya - yay.

    My point is that a calibrated orifice or a nonreturn valve or what ever, is way more complex than a piece of pneumatic line. The real point being that by the time you have...
  18. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Exactly my point that I made right at the beginning. It is mechanically easy to do.

    But the overall problem is not simple, it is deceptively complex.

    Understanding pneumatics and physics is...

    Re: Sous vide cooking

    You donít have the M/W on M/W. Hot air only. It very accurately thermostatically controlled.

    Donít forget the water has thermal inertia to smooth out any temperature blips and dips.
  21. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    With respect. That is one helluva long and complex post that must have taken some time and effort, but it (appears) is based on theory and assumptions that just don’t apply to a 4x4 vehicle.

  22. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    The programming and coding ease, or mechanism or efficiency or processing power is not the issue. ( look what they had to put a man on the moon ).

    Itís the algorithms and the mechanics it is...
  23. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Yes, obviously, how on earth do you think I got to know everything.

    By learning. DUH. ;D
  24. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    A couple of concepts there.

    I can learn, and I can understand, and I am willing. Promise.

    Impossible idea, NO, improbable YES.

    Novel, I welcome that. But I seriously doubt it. The...

  26. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Why do you resort to being personal all the time ?

    Read mine and others post on this thread, then yours. :mad:
  27. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Whats the point of your example then if it has nothing to do with air suspension, then what are you trying to say, and why, and how odes it have any relevance to this thread.
  28. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Applying your diagrams to your intended air suspension design implies that.
  29. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Exactly - or when on a steep climb or decent or a side slope while 4x4ing.

    Or when you experience body roll in a long bend at highway speeds.
  30. Re: I can't sleep so I thought: What about fitting RR P38 Air suspension in a D2?

    Problem - Air bladders are not pressure vessels.
