Power interrupt (fuse/breaker) and Emergency Stop

Recommended Posts

I currently use a standard inline fuse, and am considering moving to a circuit breaker, similar to these:



I would take two 1/0 cables from the battery to a DS18 dual reducer (https://www.amazon.com/DS18-DPIV1-Gauge-Reducers-Offset/dp/B06XHRVZ4C/), than into the 300A breaker,  Than another DS18 dual "reducer" to expand back to two 1/0 cables, than out to the amps/etc.

What are you all using? I see there are some negative reviews on some of the breakers...  Thoughts?

Also, I was looking for some type of remote-trip breaker to use with an Emergency Stop button, but cant find anything (a breaker to put on my main amp/stereo power cable that can be tripped remotely with a low-voltage E-Stop button mounted near the driver). Does anyone else do an E-stop circuit, or does everyone just wire in a fuse an forget about it?

From what I have heard those circuit breakers will get easier and easier to trip the more you switch them on/off. Eventually causing problems with the amps, etc. I'd steer clear of them imo but if you must have a quick disconnect there might be other solutions that offer a more reliable experience long term.

If everything is fused properly I see no reason for a quick disconnect though, unless you plan to work around the cables a lot under the hood.
