Default Making 36v resistor to solid state AXE & PB-6

I'm getting ready to start changing my 36v resistor cart over to AXE controller & PB-6 POT and then upgrade to (48V at a later time). I have new 48v 400 amp solenoid & 48v F/R switch for the 48v.

I'm also installing all new 4 AWG wire (2 AWG on the B- like Alltrax tech recommended.)

Questions:
1. Until I upgrade to 48v can I keep using the 36v solenoid and F/R switch?
2. Is the PB-6 POT a (Club Car type) setting on the AXE?

The plan is to wire everything up as if I were doing the 48v upgrade but will only be running 36v until I buy new bat's. I'm pretty sure the new 48v solenoid & F/R switch will not work on 36v and I'm thinking my existing 36v items will do just fine.

Thanks

Will do. Heck, I just had you make me new wires to keep the 36V set up and then decided instead of just cleaning up the wires, I might as well change the hole thing over to solid state as ScottyB said and started buying all the items I need.

Oh well, I'm sure I can use several of the wires you made for me.

Yep, been following this thread as well.

Impalass88 - Did you use the Albright SW200 contactor/solenoid in your conversion? I'm trying to make sure that it will handle the 400 continuous amps.

Here is the answer that I got from the seller:
The SW200 current for mobile and industrial use = 250 amps, for power systems and telecomunications = 400 amp continuous.
We normally use them in 48vdc mobile vehicle equipment.

Will do then. I thought I would be okay.

I went and bought the cable from Radio Shack today for the Alltrax controller. Holly crap that thing was $$$$$

Got a great deal from a member hear on the site for an Altrax 8455 that I'm going to program.

Any idea what throttle setting I use for the PB-6? I can always ask the Alltrax tech's, but enjoy getting answers here as well.

Yes sir, the Albright is the one to use. AllTrax states "We have not seen this
style of contactor fail (when used properly)." These have special coated contactors to resist arcing and possibly welding themselves together.

Which throttle setting are you referring to exactly? Throttle input? Throttle ramp up speed? Let me know, programming these things are easy. Cool thing is you can hook your laptop up to the controller, run the cable from under the seat, hook it to your laptop, go for a cruise and monitor the current draw and other things. You can then stop, adjust settings and try them out right away.

What did you pay for the cable at Radio Shack? I picked mine up online at Sewell Direct for less than $20.00 shipped (2 foot version, 6 footer avilable for $9.00 more). Here is the link. Maybe you can return the one to RS and get this instead to save some coin.

I would use the MCOR instead of the pot box. Its a direct factory replacement. The guy's at D&D Motors are the ones who told me to go that route. With the potbox you are gonna have to fabricate your brackets.
