I have a few questions concerning a project I am currently working on, I'm still in the early stages and i'll be honest not truly sure what I'm doing, LOL.

Proper Propeller Propulsion

I am in the middle of converting my 33' Seawind Catamaran with twin inboard electric motors. This boat had twin outboards 9.9HP Honda motors that were located in a inward position between the hulls that made it impossible to work on unless you removed the engines (hours to remove or install).  So I removed those gas outboards for the last time and bought two 35 HP rated, brushless 3 phase motors with Curtis controllers to run on 48Volt Lithium batteries from a Chevy Volt (2 for each).  I am…See More

ASMO Controller--Data Logging?

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 notice when I open the controller black box, that the big green brick inside has an RS 232 port. Is that just for programming, or can one also pull data out of it?  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
