Winner, Name that Ware March 2017

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

The ware for March 2017 seems to be a Schneider ATV61 industrial variable speed drive controller. As rasz_pl pointed out, I left the sticker unredacted. I had a misgiving about hiding it fearing the ware would be unguessable, but leaving it in made it perhaps a bit too easy. Prize goes to rasz_pl for being the first to guess, email me for your prize!

The Ware for March 2017 is shown below.

I honestly have no idea what this one is from or what it’s for — found it in a junk pile in China. But I was amused by the comically huge QFP, so I snapped a shot of it.

Sorry this is a little late — been ridiculously busy prepping for the launch of a line of new products for Chibitronics, going beta (hopefully) next month.

Winner, Name that Ware February 2017

The Ware for February 2017 is a Data Harvest EcoLog.

A number of people guessed it was a datalogger of some type, but didn’t quite identify the manufacturer or model correctly. That being said, I found Josh Myer’s response an interesting read, so I’ll give the prize to him. Congrats, email me for your prize!

Winner, Name that Ware January 2017

Monday, February 27th, 2017

The Ware for January 2017 is a Philips Norelco shaver, which recently died so I thought I’d take it apart and see what’s inside. It’s pretty similar to the previous generation shaver I was using. Hard to pick a winner — Jimmyjo got the thread on the right track, Adrian got the reference to the prior blog post…from 8 years ago. I think I’ll run with with Jimmyjo as the winner though, since it looks from the time stamps he was the first to push the thread into the general category of electric shaver. Congrats, email me to claim your prize (again)!
