This blog documents the restoration, and conversion, of a 1965 Humber (Singer) Vogue to a fully electric vehicle. The Vogue will be powered by an 11kW(modified), 3 phase industrial AC motor, controlled by an industry standard Variable Speed Drive (VSD) or Inverter. To be able to produce the 400 volts phase to phase the VSD will need about 600 VDC of batteries. A big thanks to the contributors on the AEVA forum: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/forums/

Battery Pack Monitor Boards
The one in black is a finished unit which will now be installed in a battery pack. The uncovered board shows how I stopped the component leads from piecing the heat shrink (after I made 2 and had this problem). Basically a cut-up folder cover is placed on the back of the board then heat shrink covers it all.
The lead entering the photo from the right shows the four pins ready to go through a cable gland in the pack then be plugged into the connector housing that is them wired to my little monitor "bus".
