Looking for TC4C board

JackH wrote:

The V4.0 board was the only version that Jim approved of as open source which is why the gerber files were included. I have a complete build with instructions and step by step testing posted here with his approval.

The newer versions of the TC4 shield and TC4C are copyrighted.


How to you tell? Are the boards marked?

I have 3 boards (the old kit build). One complete with arduino uno in a acrylic case, one with the SMT on them the other bare board with bag of parts.

Unfortunately I have a complete 2 probe build with HTC board, back wall with BT/ET probes, custom high temp (cool down) over-ride, and all other parts in another state. I upgraded my custom Hottop to a B2-K+ factory model when the old B control panel died and I could not find a replacement.

I have the boards packed to go with me when we leave and once I get the whole thing in one place I planned on listing them for sale in the trading forum.

NO ONE CONTACT ME about these as they are NOT FOR SALE until I have everything in one place to sell. I have no interest in parting this complete BT/ET build out.

Thanks Jack. Everything is packed for the trip this week. I'm sure they are V-4 as I got them a few years ago (2013/2014 or so). Just have to wait until we get there and unpack.

Doesn't the CC-BY license allow anyone to build and sell as long as they credit the original creator?

CC BY. This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation

You can all do whatever you want.

We went through all of this the last time the TC4 boards were unavailable in 2013.

So than this license should mean thats its fine to share eagle files for the board.

BTW i saw a v7 of TC4 in this video https://vimeo.com/245209123 , idk what is it :)

I named the board version 6.01,
so far it's only drawn, not tested.
If you want, get it done, here you have gerber files:

I think version 7.0 is Jim's board,
he just did not update his page.

Does anyone know what happened to Jim as he is not responding. I emailed him multiple times over the last two months and have heard nothing back.

So pcb goes through an audit in pcbhouse,
some adjustments had to be made to their requirements.
This file includes the necessary modifications:

I wanted to buy a Tc4 PCb a few month ago but no response. I decide to make this pcb board and working fine right now.

I have my boards at home, some parts are still missing.

I have a couple V5.3,s and 7.0's don't have a 6. If interest I could post pic's of the 7.

If there's a Gerber of the old board, how can I get a copy of the file to download?
 
Will2
I do not know anything about the existence of gerber files for older boards.
Some pcb houses make boards from .brd files:

https://code.goog...ult/source

Boards v.400 can be ordered in oshpark.com, see the post:

https://forum.hom...post_64504

You can also download the .brd file from oshpark.

The .brd looks like it's only a color diagram of the layout.

My setup requires the ZCD interface and I didn't think that was added until one of the later designs, and I'm not too thrilled about having to redo the whole thing in CircuitMaker. I use CircuitMaker instead of Eagle. If there was a way I could get a copy of the 4.0 that I could import, then I would only need to modify it and not do a total design.
 
Will2
I've already found the cause.
Circuitmaker can not import files from older versions of Eagle.
When I save older file in a newer version of Eagle, then it is possible.

I have Eagle also, and I brought it up on Eagle, but that same picture you have posted is all I got. Now, I'm not very familiar with Eagle because I've never really used it since I started with CircuitMaker and much more comfortable with it, so maybe there was more and I just. I actually never downloaded Eagle until about a month ago when I was wanting to do something I didn't think Circuit make did and figured I would see if Eagle would, but then I figured out how to do it in CircuitMaker. The two programs are not similar enough that you are just going to jump back and forth between the two, but I've been playing with Eagle just to see how I liked it. I have to say, I still like CircuitMaker much better, but again, I know it a lot better.
 
Will2
You have two options:
1. do the work in the eagle.
2. import the file into Circuitmaker and do the work there.

I still do not know if you have been able to import a tc4-controller-0400.brd and tc4-controller-0400.sch files into Circuitmaker.
You see the picture that I did.

The difference between Jimm´s version 6.00 and version 6.01
is in the size of some used components
(2x4-pole Phoenix instead of 1x8-pole Phoenix, bigger resistor array 0805 1kohm instead of 0603 1kohm).
I think the licensing rules are being followed.
