Useless but mandatory build ;-)

hello

I got 4 big CPU fan and 4 × 100W crappy array that i would use.
I cut with my cnc machine the plate to install all the stuff

I started with a simple 250V 15A switch but it burned the first time i turned it on…;-) I have 32A sucking the lipo (4000 6S)
So i put a simple OMRON SSR relay

Ok it output a lot of light with a small efficiency (coz of the crappy 100W arrays) but that’s funny to use it.
8min run time with the lipo

Size comparison with nitecore concept1 and astrolux MF01 Wink

that’ t actually pretty simple build.
Each 100W array is feeded with a BOOST DC module (3$ ebay) because i use a 6S lipo battery (24V) and each array need 33V.
I also use a drone PDB board to solder everything and have a 12V mini psu for the OMRON SSR (12 Vdc coil) and for the 4 heatsink fans running at 12Vdc

I’ll compare that to the MT03 and MF01 tonigh. That’s floody light.

i put manual setting with very low luminosity to get the 400W shot not over exposed…

MF01 TA driver modded >10000lm

MT03 TA driver modded>10000lm

400W array light

Video uploading….please wait

You are one clever crazy person mizou51. Thumbs Up

You are right

Do you have any link with affordable array?

Thumbs Up The board you built it on looks a lot like a kitchen cutting board. That gives the term “breadboarding” new meaning. Wink

I hope that terminology “breadboarding” does not get lost in the transition to other countries / languages / ….

yeah

you can do something smaller but i did the quickest way…just to try it.
IT would be better to use a lipo that is closed to 30V

Improvment could be
serial lipo 3S+4S to get 30V so small boost up to 33V
better quality LED array

Ya, power supply is the one must be taken care. I thought about buying those cheap booster or buck circuit too. You have heatsinking taken care of, just the run time a bit short though, so upgrade to 7s will help.
