DC to DC Converter

Postby SeaMonkey » Fri Jun 20, 2008 12:04 am

High Hopes,

Sorry to take so long getting back to you.

Detailed information is available on the DC to DC Converter board made by Artesyn.

The link to their webpage about the converter is

Be sure to download the Data Sheet to get important hookup information.

It may be ordered from Mouser Electronics and their page is


The circuit board needs someone who knows electronics to solder connection wires for DC input, DC output and Voltage Control. Then the board needs to be mounted in an enclosure with several capacitors, and the voltage control potentiometer, and a small fan to provide cooling air. It is a very efficient synchronous converter which will develop little heat even at full load, but it is always a good idea to provide air flow in case environmental conditions become hot.

The data sheet tells how to connect two or more converters for current sharing in the event you desire to go beyond 40 Amperes of output current.

It is possible to build your own less sophisticated circuit which will accomplish the same conversion but it would be less efficient, from 70% to 80% tops. However, the total cost for a home built unit would be about half the price.

It would probably be best to install it under the dash rather than in the engine compartment, although the relay to control input power may be mounted in the engine compartment. Just run heavy wiring to and from for DC input and DC output to your cell wherever it is installed.

Keepin' 'er goin'

Postby SeaMonkey » Tue Jun 24, 2008 1:52 am

High Hopes,

The method for "cleaning" your plates depends upon what kind of shape they're in. Describe the coloration of the plates and what their texture is, and how much you've used them so far.


Flash Bang,

Yes, the water is used up as the HydrOxy is produced and needs to be replenished from time to time to keep the electrolyte level up.

A small amount of electrolyte escapes from the electrolyzer as a mist and goes into the bubbler where it is "captured" in the water there. This will be emptied into the electrolyzer from time to time as well to keep the electrolyte strength up.
