OSW Control Box Fried!
« on: April 30, 2019, 08:47:23 pm »
#@$%@*@*(!!!

That lightening strike didn't just fry my motherboard. Tried to fire up the rig last night, and got electrical smell from OSW control box.

*sobbing*

Contacted Augury. Hopefully we'll get this sorted soon. Until then, it's the Porsche GT2 wheel.

When it rains it pours. Whats the turn-around time for a replacement box?

That sucks are you in an area with a lot of lightning did it hit the house? even if not go get a UPS plug it all into that may save it next time https://www.amazon.co.uk/Uninterrupted-Power-Supplies/b/ref=dp_bc_aui_C_3?ie=UTF8&node=430442031

we get odd powercut v rare now here a fair bit of lightning hits the trees here I think. worst I have had a sound like a lightsaber being turned on and swung around for few secs coming from speakers and cable TV box reset not got UPS but may get one did you open the box and check if any fuses inside or to locate which part burnt out it will stink so easy to work out PSU most likely as 24v and 5v going to Simucube hopefully just new a PSU and  SimuCube motherboard and IONI Pro or Pro HC controller are ok and encoder on servo. All connect to SimuCube motherboard so hopefully just PSU took the hit and not that expensive to replace most use these and smaller ones

Well...

fixed the control box. now the servo is going over-voltage after a lap or 2.

now i gotta replace the servo.

insurance came through, fortunately.

it's 3 weeks now. likely another week before i can get a new servo.
