What will 30A do to cheap stripboard? Answered
I'm building a motor driver, and wanted to build it on stripbaoard, but I'm guessing that it is not designed to take the power I'm using, which will be about 30A continuous at around 25V, although I may be using it for up to 90A continuous at a lower voltage.
The circuit will be fully heatsinked, with an 80mm cooling fan, but I expect the tracks will still get very hot, seeing as the recommended area for wire at 30A is about 6square millimeters.
How long will it take before something breaks or burns up?
How much do the tracks need to be built up to handle the current without getting excessively hot?
Thanks in advance.
