Default The controller exectutioner...

Controllers come to me if they require short lifespans...
or at least thats the pattern.
My first Logisystems controller died without any visual clue after about a mile...it just became one giant internal short of some kind.
My second Logisystems controller just exploded after about 8 miles...

Hopefully the good folks at Logisystems can clue me in on what happened. The terminal end of the unit just exploded out - there was a big bang, the hood shuddered and a lot of black smoke came out.

Third times a charm... I may step up to a 750 or 1000amp unit if that might help... we'll find out in about two weeks.

About 12 months ago my LogiSystem 1000A/156V was unable to contain the “black smoke” after just 5-6 miles on its maiden voyage. I then took the money and purchased a Curtis.
Thanks for the update of their progress(?)…
