Our Campaign is Live!

by Denis Kotlar (a.k.a. prasimix)

Dear all,

We have finally launched our crowdfunding campaign for EEZ BB3. It's been a long time since we decided to make the H24005 more flexible and more powerful by giving it a larger screen, an upgraded MCU, and a modular design built around a DIB v1.0 backplane capable of receiving up to three DC power source modules. We are confident that BB3 will live up to that promise.

In combination with the encoder, the touchscreen display makes it quick and easy to view and configure all important parameters. Which is, I dare say, a hard-to-find luxury within device classes under a couple thousand dollars. The free and open source EEZ Studio not only lets you automate your use of BB3, it provides access to other T&M instruments you might have on your desk. Open source firmware and hardware allow the the courageous backer to modify and enhance every part of the system – independently or in collaboration with us. And that goes for the GUI as well. You can re-design every aspect of the touchscreen interface using the extremely powerful GUI editor that we've built in to EEZ Studio.

Thank you for your trust, and we look forward to your support.

Yours,

Denis (@prasimix)

Support EEZ Studio Development

EEZ Studio is a cross-platform free and open source BB3 development environment but also atractive SCPI controller that is used to access many T&M devices using SCPI commands. Its development and support cost us money and your dontation will help us to keep it alive and kicking.

BB3 Enclosure & Bare Boards

A BB3 enclosure kit with a wire harness, nuts and bolts for the three core modules, a 4.3" TFT touchscreen display, an encoder knob, and an 80 mm fan. Includes a set of bare PCBs for building the three core modules (AUX-PS, MCU STM32F7, and BP3C DIB 3-slot backplane) as well as PCBs for building one DCM220 two-channel peripheral power module and two single-channel peripheral power modules (either the DCP405 or the DCP405B, as they can be assembled using the same PCB). Suitable for builders with the necessary skill, time, and patience.


$319

BB3 - Starter (Without Peripheral Modules)

A BB3 enclosure kit without bare PCBs but with fully-assembled core modules (AUX-PS, MCU STM32F7, and BP3C DIB 3-slot backplane). The Starter provides an environment for experimenters who are willing to build their own modules or who want a specific BB3 configuration (such as a six-channel BB3).


$554

BB3 - Two Channel (Basic)

A BB3 starter kit and two basic DCP405B single channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, including an AC/DC module for each. A great two-channel programmable power source suitable for most of everyday tasks. Expandable to three or four channels.


$599

BB3 - Two Channel (Full)

A BB3 starter kit and two full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, including an AC/DC power module for each. A two-channel programmable power source with advanced features: remote sensing, remote programming, a down-programmer, and additional OVP (with crowbar).


$658

BB3 - Four Channel (Basic)

A BB3 starter kit, two basic DCP405B single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, and one dual-channel DCM220 peripheral power module. Includes all three necessary AC/DC modules. This is the two-channel basic kit, expanded to include two additional programmable power sources.


$172

DCP405 One Channel Module (Full)

A full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power module with remote sensing, remote programming, a down-programmer and crowbar OVP. Includes an AC/DC module.


$150

DCP405B One Channel Module (Basic)

A basic DCP405B single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power module and its AC/DC module.


$123

DCM220 Two Channel Module

A DCM220 dual-channel (2 x 20 V, 4 A) peripheral power module and its AC/DC module.


$57

Cable Set

Two pairs of high quality, silicone, color marked (black-red), 1 m connecting cables; a pair of clip-on probes; and a pair of insulated crocodile clips.


$554

(Early Bird!) BB3 - Two Channel (Full)

Get a Two Channel (Full) BB3 for the price of a Two Channel (Basic) model. A BB3 starter kit and two full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, including an AC/DC module for each. A two-channel programmable power source with advanced features: remote sensing, remote programming, a down-programmer, and additional OVP (with crowbar).
