Speed controller help

Sorry if this is in the wrong place to post this but I am new to this forum and I am seeking advice!

I am after a 24V 'brushed' speed controller but have only been able to find maximum 12V.

Is it possible to wire the inputs in parrallel so the input is only 12V and wire the outputs in series so the output will be 24V? Also I could wire the signal cables from both speed controllers in parrallel and plug them into the same channel so they both get the same signals!

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from other members in the future

Check with Castle Creations (http://www.castlecreations.com/) Novak or Tekin. They should have something that would work or could point you in a direction that would have a solution.

I should also mention it should be able to handle up to 80 Amps and it must be reversible! Meaning it must be able to run the motors in forward and reverse!

I can buy really really cheap 100 Amp controllers but can only handle 12volts so I want to be able to run 2 in series to get the 24V I require!

Thanx
