Some Photographs of the Sunpower Linear Compressor

   The compressor taken out of its enclosure. Notice the pink suction inlet manifold and the coiled outlet pipe. Also notice the vertical laminations welded to form the outer housing. They complete the magnetic circuit of the linear motor.
   The underside of the compressor showing the spiral spring which is connected to the piston and linear motor via a torsion rod.
