Question: Electric Furnaces rapidly turning on and off

  • I need some help getting my electric setup to work properly. I have four electric furnaces, three macerators, a recycler, and an extractor wired together in a row. They are all wired to a solar flower with 13 solar panels using insulated copper cable with a bat-box in between. After I use the furnaces for a bit, they start flashing on and off really quickly. This happens even when the bat-box is fully charged up. I've tried different types of cable but it does the same thing regardless. Anybody know what's causing this? Hopefully I'm overlooking something simple and it'll be an easy fix. Thanks a lot for your help! :thumbup:

  • can you post a pic of your setup

    The following statement is true. The previous statement is false.

  • You're using hv cable to transport lv energy, that's very efficient and very lossy. The loss eats most of the batbox energy and only a small fraction will arrive.


    Replace the iron cable by copper cable and everything should work much better.

  • im guessing that your using all the energy batbox has stored and then your solars cant keep up

    The following statement is true. The previous statement is false.
