Re: Fuse selection for custom eBike

... But it depends on what you're protecting, and against what, whether a breaker or a fuse is a better idea. ... my knowledge is limited in this area. I was hoping to protect everything :-) where I worked, we had more of a programmed protection which could let pass high starting current but after ...

Re: Fuse selection for custom eBike

ok, now the link work :-)
Thank you

to increase my knowledge. I see this rated at 150 V DC. does that mean that voltage (tension ?) is less important as long as it is higher than the one on my electric circuit ?

Fuse selection for custom eBike

I'm no electrician :-) I have two motor attach to two 52 volt battery on my solar eBike. With both motor at maximum, I see around 2400 watts going out the battery. I found some fuse rated 40A at 58 Volt but so far I melted 2 of those, when I go at full speed for a while. Do you have advice on what t...

If you want to follow through with your idea while retaining extreme silence, you'll want a more typical direct-drive hub.
Wow that was fast :-)

Re: Max Amp and Watts on 12 gages 4 feet

I don't go at 2200 watts very often :-)

I now feel confident that the change from 10 to 12 won't impact much my setup.

Re: Bafang eBrake problem and maybe Cycle Analyst

If you are running both motors off the same battery, you could have issues if there is a lot of voltage drop in the negative battery wire between the two controllers. Make sure the two controllers battery negative wires are connected to each other with the shortest possible wire and use heavy wire....
