just wondering what you guys think ? me and some guy are fighting over how many to run with 48v,

i said 3 on each pump is fine, he is saying that you should run 5 on each pump or youll have problems, i keep trying to tell him its overkill


what you guys think?

3 is fine, so is 5, if your worrying about burning something up you wont do it with 48V running through either 3 or 5 solenoids unless your switch gets stuck

there are different ways to run the noid, you can even run 2 banks, for 48V you can even just run 2 solenoid, you'll be fine with 3

rule of thumb is 1 solenoid can handle up to 2 batteries...so technically u can run 2 solenoids and be fine... but commonly done is 3 for 48v and up to 60v....

ive seen a guy do over kill and run 1 solenoid per battery and in a 10 battery 4 pump setup you got 20 fuckin solenoids.... and i kept telling him thats way over kill and he was saying no its not cuz i had a fire in my car when i was running 3 on a setup...but he was running it in fashion that would kill em anyways...so he ran 5 in the car and it was okay....but fuck thats way overkill....r u really gonna spend $8 on each solenoid...

and if u really want to blow his mind..go order up the heavy duty solenoid from pro hopper for $65 bucks and it will handle 4 batteries on 1 solenoid...that'll fuck him up and then tell him to try and pull that "what it is he owns a shop and "has to know more" then anyone else" that mentality gets you no where....everyone is on their own different level of a learning curve....he obviously hasnt figure it out..so ya he knows more than the 6th grader at school behind me....but he dont know more than anyone else with stating that u need to run 5 noids per pump...that right there is a big time NEWBIE statement

2 noids, 4 batts it will work for ever..


3 noids 4 batts will work but when ur batteries are low, they will stick open..

with 2 noids 4 batts low or chrged batts the noids will never go out

I've always ran 3 noids for each pump on 48 V, never a problem with the noids sticking. Why do you say that it won't stick open with low batteries on a 2 noid per 4 battery setup?

has anyone ever noticed each soliniod say's 12 volt's on it. IT'S ONE PER BATTERY. 4 BATT'S=4 SOLINIOD'S. AND THEY WON'T STICK ON YOU. :uh:

Yeah, they say 12V becaue they're made for 12V just like motors but we put 24V, 26V, 48V, etc through them so the contacts will wear out and stick eventually, it's not 1 solenoid per battery though, that's just a waste of solenoids that aren't needed :no:

if thats the case why dont u ask the hoppers how many solenoid they run in their setups that are 10 batteries to the noise... or 12 to the nose i gurantee its not 12 solenoids......ever notice ur dumps say 12V on them..and we run 24v to them...

1 solenoid will run 2 batteries
