What’s up guys, I’ve been searching and can’t seem to find a solid answer, so maybe you can help.
When looking at my motors max wattage, say 3000 watts is what one motor can produce. By adding my second motor (as in dual setup), does this increase my max out put to 6000 watts or is it still just 3000 because the voltage isn’t increased?
Basically when telling someone about the potential power my board has, I would like to be able to say, “it’s capable of xxxx number of watts.”
I’ve been around here a while my friend, if you’re eluding to some of these guys arrogance, I get it. But I’m thick skinned, I can handle some keyboard heroism. That being said my dude, never stop someone from seeking knowledge, as the only stupid question is the one that goes unasked.
It’s not that you can’t post, it’s that simple questions like this raise the thread count and make it hard to find good relevant or interesting information. There is a noobs question thread under the general discussion category for questions like this
I support learning as much as the next guy but it sucks when you check the forum and it nothing but 5 post threads about simple shit
I’m glad you want to learn! Keep asking questions (just not in new threads)
Noob question?? We aren’t all mechanical engineers. I did search this question in a variety of different ways both here and on google and couldn’t find a clear answer. In fact I’m not a noob, I’ve been building boards for 3 years now. I see this as a completely valid question, something I’ve always wondered and as I have no official education, I do my best to learn what I can.
My 2 cents: We can all easily get lost in the amount of information on this forum let alone the internet. I don’t believe in knob questions and we all have our opinions on certain things. One thing to keep in mind, ‘a rating’ is not what the motor will or should deliver at any prolonged amount of time. Usually, the rating reveals the point of failure for some things. Now a MAX in or out is just that the maximum that can go in or out at any prolonged period of time and there is usually a limit on that as well 1 min, 2 or more.
Other factors are your controllers? what do they handle? and of course your battery? Everything works together if your battery can’t push the power to max out two 3000w motors, or your ESCs are only rated 30a and bottleneck the system.
Limits, maximums, and minimums are just that. There are no rules saying you have to fallow them and honestly we push the limits of this stuff as is.
Always ask first, read up and watch videos, do your homework and push the limits…
