I preform a fair number of experiments in my lab, mainly mixing different chemicals
together to see what happens. I also enjoy connecting resistors to the mains outlet and watching them burn. All these experiments
are carried out while I am suited up in my Tychem CPF4 suit with my airline attached to keep me cool. While suited my pass-through
provideds breathing air from the air distribuition system as well as allowing my life support system to communicate with my
computer. To control the computer, I use eaither keyboard or voice commands which I isue through my headset which I wear inside
the suit. The head set it connected to an FM transmitter and Reciever, which also allows me to hear feedback from the computer.
My pass-thru is also equipped connections to 5 DS18B20 tempurature sensors which are mouted on several small clips. While
I am suiting up I clip one sensor about half-way down each leg, one near my stomach, one on my back and one near my head.
This network of sensors monitors my body tempurature while suited and relays this data back to the computer. While wearing
a totally-encapsulating suit it does get VERY hot inside, so keeping an eye on your tempurarue is VERY important. Inside the
pass-thru there is also a DS18B20 to monitor the tempurature of the air from the supply system as well as an airflow monitor.
Schematics on how to build a pass-thru similar to the one I use can be found on the projects page, along with information
on DS18B20 temourature sensors, FM transmitters and recievers and voice control.
