    We have a boat I recently bought which had factory 12V 8 determine wiring and plug at the start. My question for you is, i do want to operated a Minn Kota Powerdrive V2 70 pound 24V motor, but need certainly to modify everything to 24. I’m sure how to line battery packs in parallel and collection, but need to know the things I must replace. By wiring right up in show to 24V, was two wire sufficient to the connect? Really does a 24V trolling engine bring 4 cable? You will find had 12V engines in earlier times, but never any 24V setups. Anyone who can aim me within the best course, i’d considerably relish it.

    The 70 pound 24V pulls a maximum of 42 amps, so I noticed the 8 measure wires will be sufficient. Any simple to follow hyperlinks was appreciated. We read some with just two wires and a few with three and four. Would like to make sure I have everything ordered and ready for once the motor shows up. Thank you once more

    As stated, 24v will pull considerably amps than 12v. Therefore if the wires was actually adequate for 12v, it will be sufficient for your 24v.

    The only exception to this rule becoming in the event that you move the place in the battery packs while increasing the distance. Length makes a difference. If you don’t, and you are clearly only swapping on, do not bother switching the wiring.

    As mentioned, 24v will draw much less amps than 12v. So if the wiring is enough for 12v, it is sufficient for 24v.

    Truly the only exception being any time you go the situation of this batteries while increasing the exact distance. Length makes a difference. If you don’t, and you are clearly simply switching down, you should not bother modifying the wires.

    Yep think about it like liquids stream. if you’d like a 2″ water-line but have only 1″ you’ll two contours to get the conclusion need.

    In an identical way with energy. You’ll operated 2 contours both run 24v but going to the exact same plug you’ll be able to operated twice as much amps as simply operating one line state range x runs 50 amps but 2 lines x/2 manage 25 amps each offering the 50 amps.

    24V attracts less latest than 12V. Anytime it had been good enough for 12, it is more than enough for 24. You did find that parts correct?

    There are various various gauges of cable that can operate. The larger the cable the significantly less voltage drop you should have. Presuming a 20′ line (40′ routine), 42 amp, 24V. 8 AWG must certanly be great. I will never run heavier line for a motor that will pull much less latest than what the plant supposed.

    Here’s Minn Kota’s Conductor measure information: (click on the proper back link)

    Observe that the 12V 55lb. push unit immediately above your own pulls considerably amps and needs larger determine wire. Additionally see the ideal routine breaker is obviously more than the max amp draw associated with engine. That’s because you do not need they to stumble any time you become their engine on higher. Don’t set a 40 amp breaker on a 42 amp motor. Keep in mind that 95% of the time you’ll not suck anywhere near 42 amps.
