General Discussion about large electric scooters and motorcycles and other things with no pedals.
I will be running my GIO 500W+ on 60 volts because it plain and simply works better for my big and heavy butt, trouble is that the alarm system works on 48 volts and giving it 60 volts kills it so I need to step down 60 volts to 48 volts so the alarm can live. The bike runs without the alarm but I really miss it so if anyone knows how I can protect the 48 volt alarm when I'm running 60 volts I'd sure like to hear from you.

Assuming that the alarm consumes very little power, I would tap 48V directly from the 60V battery bank.

I remember some discussion about 120V Meanwell PSUs running on DC... they make 48V output versions. Most switching PSUs can run on lower voltages, maybe even 60V.
Other members with hands-on experience might give more insight.
Have a Nice Day,
