Differences between 35/40amp and 48/50amp controller.
I've read this fourm, up and down and sideways and searched, so feel justified in asking.
Alot of this forum is based on the crystalyte 40amp controller, and its made quite clear how to up the amps and improve in general. It is also stated that the controller should not be pushed more than 50 amps with out up specking other parts of the board.
Where I am not clear is, I have a 72v48amp controller, which I am presuming is the same as a 50amp, its a 12fet. Is this board basically an up specked version of the 40amp model, therefore at its limits with out further modification, or is it comfortable at 50amps, and could be pushed to 60amps with no other modifications than shunt+R4 mods?
I would really just like to put a variable resistor at R4,(so I can bring it down again easily) wind it up to get 60amps and be done.
I dont want more than 60amps for this project, and it will never be continuous draw. (.....little devil over my left shoulder belly laughing at that statement)
Is it safe, or am I risking making popcorn?
It would be great to have a list somewhere that says, you can safley push a stock "Y"controller to "X" volts and "Z" amps. After that your on your own.
