Re: Bowthruster Power and a Fuse/Disruptor

Mark McGovern


Jose Venegas of Ipanema SM2000 Hull #278 posted his bowthruster power consumption data here:

The peak current draw was about 450A and the voltage at the time a little over 26V which makes the peak power draw ~11,700W.

Amel did not fuse the large battery cables going to the bowthruster but several members have since installed fuses.
