Battery Hook-Up on 4020
A good first thing to look at is like my old friend Gerald J mentioned in that the + and – battery posts are different sizes (diameter) and the old connections should provide a clue as to how it was connected prior if the 2 are in series. If they’re in show along with the 24 volt system, the batteries are linked + of 1 battery pack to – of contrary part battery pack and therefore mid internal tie point (+ of just one to – of other) even offers a relationship or jumper or cable linked with framework ground. Then, the 2 external most untied articles (remaining other + of 1 – of other) goes to the 24 volt beginner, for example. the beginner has TWO big cables to it versus only 1 like in 12 volt systems, in addition to voltage scross them is 24 volts. Once more, those two outermosts untied to starter posts AREN’T the 2 articles tied up at the center and bonded to frame ground.
In the 6 versus 12 volt debate, we have talked about that many times right here and also the main point here (from an engineering view) is the fact that whichever configuration (solitary 12 or two sixes in show) stores the essential power provides more reserve cranking ability. a battery is an electricity storage unit and energy that is electrical expended in energy that will be Volts x Amps in the long run. In the event that batteries are of equal design type letter construction, the most power is whatever combination gets the most LEAD AND ACID AND PLATES (usually corresponds with physical size n weight) and thats generally why two sixes in show (actually larger n more lead acid n plates) can store more power than an individual smaller 12 volt device. BUT, thats never to state that two light wimpy six volters in show shops more power than an individual super high quality 12 volt product.
