Custom Pump Control System

In winter term of my senior year at OSU I had someone come in to TekBots with a homemade water cooling pump system in a state of disrepair used for cooling a reactor in a research lab and offered to pay me to make it functional again. I replaced the old control system with my own and laser cut a new top plate with a printed label inside and panel mounted switches and potentiometers (the original system had trimmer pots on protoboard). He was pleased enough with my work that he has since come back to me asking me to make three larger systems that each have six pumps. I've built him a working prototype and the parts for the rest of the systems are ordered and waiting for me to design a case to hold them.
