Wiring Trolling Motor Batteries in Series or Parallel

Battery-powered accessories on a boat often work on something other than a 12-volt power source. Troll motors need, for example, 24 or 36 volts. Most deep cycle battery available usually not in these voltages; Thus, you can connect two or more in a series to double or triple your power while retaining the same capacity (Amp Hours).

An important consideration in this process is the chemistry of the battery; do not use two different chemicals to the serial or parallel connection. Make sure the voltages are the same, but the most important are the charging speed and the same capabilities in order to extend the battery life.

First, make sure you have, you do not want to feed the 36 volts to a 12-volt motor drive! Once you have decided that you really have a 36 V drive motor, you need to make sure that you have room in the battery compartment for three fullstoriga marine batteries. It is also wise to go extra meters and make sure you have either boxes or attachments for the three batteries. You do not want these sources of energy; turn the entire hull while hitting the waves!

Wiring Trolling Motor Batteries in Series

Wiring in series

You must first make two sons of riders, about 2 meters long. You can get the necessary components from all the vehicle providers and the boat dealers. Once you have these loans, you are ready to make the serial connection. To make it a little easier and keep it straight, give the batteries a number name, for example, # 1, # 2 and # 3. No matter what number is allocated to which battery is made for the rest of the instructions Are easy to understand.

Arrange the power units in the battery compartment of the boat to the opposite terminals are contiguous. The negative terminal of # 1 must be next to the positive terminal of # 2, and the negative terminal of # 2 must be next to the # 3 positive terminals.

Connect your first connecting wire between the negative terminal of the first battery and the positive terminal of the other battery. Connect your second connection wire between the negative connector of the second battery and the positive terminal of the third battery. Attach the positive motor control wire to the positive terminal of the first battery. Attach the negative motor control wire to the negative terminal of the third battery.

Your series is now complete and you have a full power 36 volts to your control engine. For a 24 volt system, leaving you just like the third battery and connect the negative cable from the engine control to the other terminal of the other deep cycle battery.

Wiring in parallel

This method can be useful when you need to double your carrying capacity rather than your stress. In this case, you will need your 12-volt charge to endure a long period of trolling before falling completely. This method is called parallel connection and is really simple.

You attach the positive motor control cable to the positive terminal of the first battery. And the negative wire from the engine control to the negative terminal of the battery. Then, you connect a connection cable from the positive terminal of the first battery to the positive terminal of the other battery. The second bridging network connects the first terminal of the first battery to the second negative contact of the battery. This doubles your 12-volt capacity to power your control engine and twice as long!
