Hi guys,

 

I have a EFP sled which is currently supplying 12v through a 4pin lemo connector of which only 2pins are connected at the moment from one of the AB battery plates.

 

Do I simply need to change out the 5amp breaker to 10amps or will I have to change the actual electric wiring if I want to connect the second AB plate to the 4pin lemo and supply 24v through the sled?

You will have to actually change the wiring. 

24V uses two 12v batteries in series to provide the 24v. 

You can wire up a double pole, double throw switch up to switch between the two. That is how the pro sleds switch between the two.
