Crossing fingers for the multi-saving slot firmware will be available in next batch.

It's just a software update and you can easily install it on all the newer (2005 and 2011, plus remakes) Freezer versions.

But I'm in contact with Sven and we will make sure that the newly produced Freezers ship with the latest available software/firmware version.

I found a bit of spare time this weekend and fixed a minor bug in the cart preset editor. The (not yet documented) shift-insert keycombo now properly recalls the latest loaded or entered slot description so you can easily copy settings and descriptions from one preset entry to another one - or create another entry with different settings (eg MAC/65 and MAC/65 with SDX) without having to type in the full description again.

so long,

Hias

Hi all,

 

short Update:

 

The boards of the old version from 2011 have arrived in the meantime, see photos.
I order the needed parts now and assemble the board as soon as they are there.

I also ordered the boards for the 2016 version. These should also arrive in the next few days.

 

Stay tuned...

 

Can someone lend me a Turbo Freezer 2011? I would like to compare the new boards with an old version before connecting them for the first time.

 

So long

 

Sven

The board of santosp from 2016 has arrived in the meantime too, see photo.

Hi all,

i wanted to give you a brief update:

In the meantime I have successfully built up the 2011 and 2016 layouts, see attached images.
The respective freezers run almost error-free.
Currently, with the help of HiassofT, i'm looking for a problem with the freezer if the backup battery is missing.
As soon as this has been solved, I will implement my own layout and if this also works, i can start a small batch.

So long

Sven

I know this is Polish, but 'sztukami' looks almost Japanese :) , though it also contains the sound of stuk/stück (Dutch/German).

Did you also improve the design so that -just like the newer version- there is a decent battery placeholder in stead of a battery soldered on the pcb?

That large circular line with the text CR2032 looks very very much like a space and holes for a CR2032 battery holder.....

sure, the battery will become a placeholder.
