Apologies for the delay in shipment; however I can confirm that these kits have been sent out to the testers. Thank you.
i simply like the look of this device, mini kits have opened up a whole new world to me, i was in the royal corps of signals British army and miss messing around with bits of kit, not sure what will come out of this rather large and balding globe of mine but hey i was the guy who started the "who ate all the pies" mantra way back.
Well, if you're currently trying to drag your product through CE/FCC testing and you're having problems with electrical discharge on your RS-485 lines you'd be more than happy with this board.
For most hobbyists this will not be very interesting, I agree. I think the closest you'd get to hobby projects is DMX (lighting control) which is based on RS-485.
Whilst I don't doubt that this is a well engineered and designed device with many possible applications in various fields, I wonder how it could be used with any projects that I am currently undertaking?!
In all honesty, my projects are small enough & low cost meaning that they are easilly replaced. They are also pretty much self-contained and I could not imagine how this could be intergrated or why I would need this level of protection. (Obviously this is designed for "High-End" protection of very sensitive devices).
I may be wrong on my interpretation of the possible uses for this device (which is obviously of no use to me) but I would really be interested to see what the road testers thought of this and what their opinion is of possible uses for this device in real world scenarios.
(Just my two cents, nothing else!).
