36VDC versus 24VDC or 48VDC

Thu Nov 16, 2017 3:31 pm

I'm in a situation where I have space for 3 - 12V DC batteries. Will I have issues with 36 V DC vs a 24 V or 48 V battery system.

What model switch? If the DC model switch has a variable input DC power supply then any voltage between the min and the max will work.

Haven't heard of any such issues. From an engineering perspective, power supply efficiency is optimal around 24V and up.

I'd be willing to bet that the only way you'd ever know there was a difference would be that I told you, though, it's fairly minimal.

Gentlemen, thanks for the imput. I'll be using a WS-26-500-DC.
