I'm still in disbelief but yes, it does work that well!
Although, since this is just my personal launch sys, it *is* a bit
overkill. I would've been just as happy to have it fire clusters of
solar ignitors, which is all I really wanted to begin with.
"Fuse"? I use an autoreset thermal breaker (automotive type
with spade terminals). A 10A part will kick out in ~15 secs at
20A and reset in ~20 seconds. It will handle 40A for a few seconds
without kicking out. Impossible to fry the internal wiring with one
of these and also more convenient than changing a fuse. If you're
nervous about lighting bigger clusters, then use a 20A part.
Hosfelt.com has autoreset breakers for <$1. They also
have automotive relays at low prices. I've made 40 or so
relayers using their parts. They've worked great for 1000's of
