However a worthy attempt to win some extra time ended miserably .
Due to some late changes or things that became clear long after the electronics were designed, it was necessary to change some things. Because it took too much time to create dedicated PCB’s for these small changes I thought it was a good idea to make some proto boards and use epoxy for potting.
Not directly our style but sometimes you need to be open for changes. Nevertheless I should have known better . After silicone, it looks like I am also incompatible with epoxy. For an unknown reason, part of the black gunk dripped into the connectors with as a result that we could bin all the stuff !!
So for the moment we are heavily designing with Orcad to redo this job in a proper way.
