This posting should explain some of the reasons I am not building controllers right now.

First I am having health issues that prevent me from working with the small parts, I have neuropathy and it makes it hard to pick things. No more said about that.


The second reason is more important. There is an issue with a short that is caused by the mis-connection of the three leads that go to the control panel.


It is something I hear all the time and it causes the transistors to fail. 


I have had an engineer look at the problem and he has made a recommendation to fix the issue. I will implement his recommended changes in the next month.


It will not add to the cost of the controllers, it is a change to make sure that the controllers will be more reliable.


I hope the people who are waiting to order new controllers and those who are waiting for repairs will read this and understand the problems.
