Using MightyBoyEV - Shielding RFI from the Sevcon DC to DC converter.....

This Sevcon DC to DC converter is a 300 watt "potted" unit and designed for rough on-board vehicle use

The only problem is under certain charging conditioning (when driving the vehicle) if transmits a lot of RFI

Fabricating this steel enclosure (a shielded box...) solved the problem beautifully.....

Now I can use the AM radio!

Additional heatsink fins inside the enclosure keep the unit nice and cool. I have avoided using fan cooling throughout this project.

Small fans require servicing (cleaning etc) and can fail under on road conditions.
