Hi, I don’t know why, but I simply can’t find any threads about the MAX current of the standard Vedder Anti-Spark Switch. I got one from esk8.de a long time ago, and I’m about to put it in another build, but it is a dual this time. What is the max current I can draw from this switch if I replace the fuse with a 10awg wire? Thanks
Most of them are 120A, I got a bigger one from APS rated for max 300A.
That one you bought is MAX 60A
Would you happen to know the peak amps also?
It says in german 50Amps cont, and 60amps max, but maybe thats just the fuse? O.o
Yeah, I think it is. Mine came with a 40A fuse though. But I removed that now, and we’ll see how it holds up. I won’t be pulling much more than 60 amps at peak anyways.
Yeah, I wouldnt push more then that when it only got two mosfets.
I used bat max 30A (on each vesc so 60A total) for 300 miles so far on this antispark and it was fine. I didn’t actually reach 60A for long periods, looking at my records i pull around 40-45A, with peaks to 60A every now and then but not often.
So far so good. This weekend I got home after a ride and board would not turn off. I thought fets are gone but after disconnecting the antispark and jst plug for the switch and plugging everything back again, it still worked. I think the jst plug wasn’t making perfect contact and I essentially didn’t have the switch plugged in, causing it to remain on.
There is an image somewhere on this forum showing blow times for fuses and I remember it showing that at 150% load it still takes a few seconds for the fuse to blow.
