MK 2 – Keeping Things Cool

Posted: 2010/09/26 in Uncategorized

As I mentioned in a previous post, things are getting rather tight under the hood of the rover.

Under the Hood

Cooling

The front is where the things are the tightest.  There’s 4 levels of printed circuit boards there.  The ends of the rover will be closed with a baffle that will let air in, but in order to force the flow of air, there’s a cooling fan installed on the side of the rover.  This will ensure air circulation to evacuate the hot air.  Hopefully the combination of heatsinks and cooling fan will take care of any heating issues.  Time will tell.
