SECTION V. ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. The electrical system is a 24-volt system using four 6 TL batteries
arranged in parallel series. The master switch is installed in the negative return. Four circuit breakers are
used to isolate problems to a particular circuit, reducing troubleshooting time. An electrical transmission
controller selects all of the ranges in the M113A3 transmission. Both 100-amp and 200-amp generator
regulators are provided so that any 6V53 engine may be operated and tested without being damaged. A
connector panel is provided for connecting the 100-amp generator system. An instrument panel is also
provided. See Section VI for instrument panel.
