Default Re: Will this 12V boost theory work

Ok it's almost as clear as MUD now !
So the green is at 36 Volts and the red is normally blocked except during Turbo and
there is no switch/Solinoid/Diod/anything to block the Positive 12 Volt Battery lead when
the 36Volt is enabled ?

I think you missed the part where I stated its a "flip flop" type solenoid, only one side would activate at a time. Only the grren side or only the red side would be connected at a time depending on solenoid activation. Dont sweat it, I've got it pretty much under control (yeah right), I was now going to try to find the diodes that Roady was talking about way back on page 1. A searching we will gooo...Thanks for looking though

Hey Ox I find this Very interesting,
And I did see the first page all the way through I just need some clarification to help this
OLD thought processor I have.
I noticed that the +12 Volt Battery lead would have at least 36 Volt at the + post (No Solinoid) all the time.
I also realize since the toggle is not engaged which places it in series
with the rest of the pack , that it is not truely a complete circuit and should not harm the 12 Volt Battery.
And with the toggle , even a failure at the "-" lead of the 12 Volt Battery would only cause 12 Volts to go to the motor ?
Correct ??
Breaks should stop it

Actually Im running 48V upgraded system right now and as for 12V battery,
yeah thats the way I see it too. Also, to have a runaway cart, the main solenoid and the VGlide would both have to weld themselves together at the same time, theoretically possible yes, but highly unlikely.
As far as the brakes stopping it, we will see if the 23's will be stoppable with the stock brake setup, or will I be installing some pushbumpers on as "justincasers"

And thanks--I found this to be an interesting setup and discussion too

So after looking at your setup, for the worst to happen, the pedal would also have to be stuck/pads welded in the upper/full position as well as the solenoid. But otherwise even if the solenoid did weld shut, once the pedal was released power to the circuit would be off anyway, (no longer having any pads making contact.)

GM,

Ox's comment and my response has NOTHING to do with ANY of your comments. I'll PM you in a bit to explain better!

So is this going to be done by this weekend so we'll all know the outcome before next Monday? :)

I've got a couple sympathy cards at the ready in case of failure... lol
