I am currently working on an e-board. my esc is a vesc, which has the following ratings:
- Voltage: 8V – 60V (Safe for 3S to 12S LiPo).
- Current: Up to 240A for a couple of seconds or about 50A continuous depending on the temperature and air circulation around the PCB.
I will be using a DPDT switch to switch from charging mode to esc mode. (I'm using a DPDT switch so I can cut the current in half)
Now, I would like to set a fuse as an extra safety to my esc. The problem is when I search online for fuses of 50A, I
- A)Can't find the fuse itself
- B)Can't find a fuse holder for 50A
Is there a way to split this in half like I did with the switch ? Or can you direct me to a good site that does have these items?
Also would it be better to put the fuse after or before the switch ?
