My new capacitor bank is finished! This bank holds 38x 4700uF and 2x 3300uF capacitors of 350V in parallel (total 0,1852 Farad). It can hold a maximum energy of about 11344 Joule.



This bank is suitable for various electrical weapons and test setups, which include: rail gun, coil gun and ETC gun. The design is as compact as possible, so that it eventually can be made portable.



Specifications:



Capacitance: 185200uF

Voltage: 350V

Energy: 11343,5 Joules

Conductors: 4mm aluminum sheets

Weight: 44,1 kg

Dimensions: 385 x 613 x 182mm

Costs: €208,52

I especially like his lasercut conductor plate made of aluminum and PCB board. [Via Hacked Gadgets]
