Goals of the prototype:
> Proof of concept, that such a Sauna can heat up in under 1h to 80-90°C
> Such a Sauna is not too heavy for a balcony / roof top terrace
> Construction and ramping down of the Sauna can be done unter 1h and the modules are totally mobile
> evaluate the loss of heat and insulation values
Sauna modules part of the prototype:
> 1 x 100x80cm window
> 3 x 100x80cm solid wall
> 6 x 80x80cm solid wall
> 2 x 80x80cm -> door module
> Flat roof
The result will be a Sauna with the size: 100x160cm and a height of 160cm
What stands in the Sauna:
> a bench 60x160cm height 90cm
> a (standard) 3kW Sauna oven (incl control unit)
> Heating elements with a total power of 22A running on a 45A battery pack supporting the Sauna oven with additional power during heating up
Main costs in thie project
> the sauna oven + electronic
> thermo electronic elements
> SME around insulation
> SME for security review
