    I have a ship I recently purchased that had factory 12V 8 determine wires and plug in advance. My real question is, i do want to operated a Minn Kota Powerdrive V2 70 LB 24V motor, but need certainly to revise anything to 24. I understand ideas on how to cable battery packs in match and series, but must know the thing I should replace. By wiring up in collection to 24V, try two wire adequate for the connect? Do a 24V trolling motor bring 4 wires? I have owned 12V engines prior to now, but never ever any 24V setups. Anyone who can point me during the best path, i might considerably be thankful.

    The 70 pound 24V brings a max of 42 amps, so I thought the 8 gauge wiring is sufficient. Any simple to follow website links will be appreciated. We read some in just two cables several with three and four. Simply want to be sure I get every little thing ordered and ready for when the engine shows up. Thanks once more

    As previously mentioned, 24v will take much less amps than 12v. So if the wires got adequate for 12v, it will be adequate for all the 24v.

    Truly the only different being in the event that you go the area for the battery packs and increase the distance. Point is important. If you don’t, and you are clearly simply swapping away, you shouldn’t make the effort altering the wires.

    As mentioned, 24v will extract considerably amps than 12v. Therefore if the wiring got enough for 12v, it’s going to be adequate the 24v.

    The only exception getting should you push the location associated with battery packs while increasing the distance. Range makes a difference. Otherwise, and you’re only swapping on, cannot bother modifying the wires.

    Yep think of instabang dating it like water flow. if you would like a 2″ water-line but just have 1″ you can easily two outlines to get the conclusion want.

    In an identical way with energy. You’ll manage 2 outlines both run 24v but going to the same plug you can operated double the amps as merely running one line state line x operates 50 amps but 2 traces x/2 operate 25 amps each giving the 50 amps.

    24V pulls considerably present than 12V. Therefore if it was adequate for 12, it really is ample for 24. You probably did catch that parts appropriate?

    There are plenty of various gauges of line that run. The bigger the wire the significantly less current fall you should have. Presuming a 20′ cable (40′ routine), 42 amp, 24V. 8 AWG must be okay. Personally wouldn’t operate heavier cable for a motor that is going to take considerably existing than the factory intended.

    Here is Minn Kota’s Conductor determine information: (click on the suitable link)

    Realize that the 12V 55lb. push unit right above your own website draws most amps and requires large gauge line. Also spot the suggested circuit breaker is always higher than the max amp draw of engine. That’s because you do not need it to visit each time you become the motor on high. Cannot place a 40 amp breaker on a 42 amp engine. Remember that 95per cent of that time period you won’t bring anywhere close to 42 amps.
