    Again, I'm sorry that I seem to be gettin' you guys so upset. I'm just doin' some research & learning "as I go".

    It'll probably piss you all off again, but I'm gonna explain things from "my point...

    Yes, I asked for the forums input but, "you" (or anyone) shouldn't get "pissy" if I (or anyone else) don't just blindly follow it.

    I am still researching & gathering information, your input is...

    I have found several switches rated for 72VDC +, but they seem way "over built" to control simple "signal" circuits.

    Yes, these circuits are "pack voltage" (60VDC) but, they should not carry much...

    Oh OK, from the answers you gave, you didn't seem familiar with these controllers.

    Most of the small speed controllers I've dealt with (on scooters pit bikes & such) are set up like this, I guess...

    It's just a "toy" but, the designer definitely had the Ariel Ace in mind.

    All due respect, but I think these systems are a little different than the systems your used to working with too.

    It may be like that on them thousand dollar controllers. (they may have a DC to DC...

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, but I think this system is a little different than the ones your used to.

    A 60V to 12V DC to DC convertor is/could be usable, to reduce the voltage, for the (after...

    What could/should I use for switches for the "small" power systems?

    Like for sending "signals" (ie. brake light switch, or for turning the speed controller on & off)

    It's still high voltage...

    Kool, thanks.
    I couldn't find much difference, other than price.

    The 80VDC 16A switch will be only be used to turn the speed controller on & off. (probably like, 60V & ~150mA)

    We will not be running the "full current" (60VDC & ~35A) that's going to the motor"...

    Doing more research, I asked different demographics this same question.

  16. Questions about proper accessory components for a 60V system

    Howdy,

    I have purchased a 60V 2,000W Boma brushless motor & speed controller to use on a go kart. (~$ 250.00 for both)

    Anyone ever heard of an Aerial Ace?

    It's a motorcycle, not a "flying" ace or some goofy Pokeyman thing (IDK. it came up in a google search)

    Do you have back up plans (plan B) built into your design?

    Hypothetical:

    Yup!

    I even go "dual purpose" & use resettable circuit breakers for the fuse & main cut-off switch for all of the go karts that I design/make.

    I also use a circuit breaker as a fuse & main...

    Nice Video & Very Kool Build!

    Could you explain your start up procedure? (step by step)

    If the battery in your phone gets low (0%) will the bike still function?
