Project Name:     MAKESafe Power Tool Brake
Expertise:     Electrical Engineering
Description:     I have a working prototype of a universal DC Injection Brake for AC Induction Motors and would like a professional design review that considers, in order of importance, (a) technical and procedural consideration of (and planning for) certification by UL or other similar body, and (b) the reliability and durability of the current electronic design.

The project requires skills and experience with:
- The UL (or other body's) certification process
- Line voltage electronic design (relays, triacs, etc.)
- AC induction motors and motor control (in the 0.25 - 2 HP range)

All consultation would be performed hourly at a negotiated rate, beginning with an initial design review (a few hours) and expanding as needed from there.
Other Info:     The project could start immediately. While much of the work can be performed over email/phone, at least one in-person meeting would be required in the Bay Area. An NDA will need to be signed.
