Default Re: Need more Torque...speed optional for now

Spent a little time researching the Alltrax controllers. Does anyone recommend the programmable controller? I can see the advantage on the surface...but am I really going to tweak this thing enough to justify the additional cost? Just curious?

If there is any chance for a future motor upgrade, the programming might come in real handy.

gornoman,
DO you charge the 2 additional batteries by disconnecting them from the pack and using a standard 12v charger ? What would happen if you forgot to disconnect them ?

I might go to 48v before the summer, but I don't want to buy a 48v charger.

I'm running a stock motor, 4 ga. everywhere, a MJZ200 solenoid (36v) and a AllTrax DCX400 controller, what would I need to do to go 48v ?

I run 2 chargers at once, no cables need to be diconnected. For your rig you would need 2 batteries, some extra 4g cables, and a 12v automotive smart charger. Your solenoid will work as long as you maintain only 36v to the actuation circuit. I am assuming the Alltrax DCX400 can tolerate 48v, which I'm sure it can. I have not done a DCS or PDS cart like this, but I don't see any reason why the same setup wouldn't work. No guarantees.

Could you show me a cable diagram of how the batteries are "wired" ? I figured even with them in the club compartment they were tied into the pack just as the other 6 are linked together.

What will a 12v smart charger cost me ?

The batteries are wired in series, positive to negative to positive etc., just like they are now. The secret is where to break the chain and how to maintain 36v on the control circuits.
12v smart charger is around $50.
