I have an ASMO Thoosa 9000 system in my Ericson 30+ Does someone have a guide to pulling data out of the system? I have heard that the controller keeps some event data.

I've like to be able to keep a log of what's happening with the motor and battery system. Thanks. --Ernie GalvanZenergy, Ericson 30+See More

I sail out of New Bedford. I am planning on taking the…See More
I've noticed the majority of vendors base their EP motors on 48 volts, how come?I saw a Greenstar Marine product at the Portland boat show & the size 10 motor was 24 volts, their larger motor was 48. I think Mastervolt also has a 24 v motor in the smaller size also.That got me to thinking why 48 volts? Is it because golf cart motors are 48 & that became the starting point for recreational EP? If you could find/get a motor that ran on 24 volts, it would be far easier to have a larger…See More
