What size breaker do I need for a 24 volt trolling motor?

What size circuit breaker do you need for a 24 volt trolling motor?

All 12, 24 and 36 volt trolling motor systems (Minn Kota 70lb thrust motors should use a 50 amp breaker).

How many amps does a 24 volt trolling motor draw?

The Force trolling motor can run on 24 volts or 36 volts, and the chart below shows how a 24v setting will draw higher amps then running at 36 volts.

24 Volt Power Source.

Throttle Level Thrust Current
10% 25 N-m (6 lbf) 2 A
20% 45 N-m (10 lbf) 3 A
30% 70 N-m (16 lbf) 6 A
40% 101 N-m (23 lbf) 9 A

What size circuit breaker do I need for trolling motor?

It is highly recommended that a circuit breaker or fuse be used when installing a trolling motor. Refer to the Minn Kota “Conductor Gauge and Circuit Breaker Sizing Table”. For motors requiring a 60-amp breaker, the Minn Kota MKR-19 60-amp circuit breaker is recommended.

Is my Minn Kota 12 or 24 volt?

The nameplates are most often found in the foot petals of the motor. Otherwise, you can look at the configuration of the trolling motor batteries to find the volts. Open the hood and look at the battery. If you see 6 cells, it’s a 12-volt battery, but if you see 12 cells, it means it’s a 24-volt battery.

How many amps does a Minn Kota ultrex use?

minn kota 36volt 112 thrust amps used under variable loads.

How long will a 24v trolling motor run?

This will give you maximum speed and power and is often necessary on a large boat, or in strong winds. Thus, if you operate your trolling motor at maximum speed, you will typically get about 2 hours of use from a fully charged pair of “average” batteries. Possibly 4 hours of use for the larger extra capacity batteries.

Can I run my 12 volt trolling motor on 24 volts?

The motor was designed for 12 volts and was designed to dissipate the heat from 12 volt power. When run at 24 volts the coils will heat up much faster than at 12 volts, and the motor will not be able to release the heat quickly enough.

How long will trolling motor run on battery?

Almost 5 hours doesn’t seem too bad, but that is really a max runtime in ideal conditions. Reality is likely to be less. If the battery is old, damaged or not fully charged then you will not get the rated amp hours from it, reducing your runtime. Significant cold or hot weather will also reduce your runtime.

Why do I need a circuit breaker for trolling motor?

A trolling motor circuit breaker is designed to “trip” at a certain amperage, which breaks the circuit and prevents the motor from overloading and damaging itself.

How many amps does a Minn Kota ulterra use?

According to the MinnKota spec sheet, the max draw is 56 amps at 24 volts.

Does a 24 volt trolling motor need 2 batteries?

We recommend that you use separate deep cycle marine battery/batteries for your Minn Kota motor if you use a crank battery to start a gasoline outboard. There are two batteries in the 24 Volt Systems. There are two batteries that need to be deep cycle.

How do you charge a 24 volt trolling motor?

Connect a jumper cable to the negative (“-, ” “NEG” or “GND”) pos of the second battery. Clip the alligator clip at the end of the wire from the negative (“-, ” “NEG” or “GND”) post of the battery charger to the jumper wire. Plug the battery charger in. Turn the battery charger on, set the rate of charge to 20 amps.

How do you get 12 volts from a 24 volt system?

When using a 24v on 12v appliances, you will need to use a DC-DC converter. This converter helps to drop the voltage from 24v to 12v. A DC to DC converter is an electronic device used to regulate voltage from a source.

What size wire is needed for 24 volts?

If you have a 24V supply for a 200 amp device, we will assume that the wiring is copper and has a typical insulation and installation type. With a wire distance of 25 feet and a voltage drop of 3%, you will need a wire size of 4/0 AWG.
