I am working on a high-powered e-bike project. I would like to start the bike using an Arduino. The bike runs on a 60V dc battery with a peak current draw of 40A.
I have looked at various relays, particularly of the latching type as I just want to use the Arduino to switch on the bike and allow the power to flow through. However, I can't find a relay with the correct amp limits. I do find high current relays (>100A) rated for 250v AC. Will this work? Any suggestions as to how I can get this system built would be greatly appreciated!!
