Budget Exhaustion Analysis

1. 36V Power Supply- The team worked to make the previous teams 48V power supply work with our design, but unfortunately such high voltage routinely destroyed components in the electrical actuation system (particularly the MOSFETs).

2. 24V Solenoids- These solenoids were used in our proof of concept design in senior design 1. They are on this list because the cost to order them quickly through Amazon is 4 times as high as the cost per solenoid that the team would spend purchasing all 24 solenoids.

3. 24V Solenoid- This solenoid was one of the first ones the team purchased for R&D, it cost the team 3 times the cost per unit of the ones used in the final design.

4. 24V Small Solenoid- This solenoid was tested but found to be too small to be able to pull a piano key effectively.
