Never had an electric shield yet so was wondering if there is anything in the shield that makes it AC or DC dependant? I only have AC on my machine ( AC Panther 440)
. So want to wire up a electric shield. Thanks folks.

Hi Antennas
Welcome to the site.
I've personally never heard of any sled having AC. (alternating current - example, 120 volts as used in your house.)
They all have DC (direct current - 12 volts as used in your car or sled.) which will work with your electric shield.
I'm curious as to why you say your sled has an AC electrical system.

My heated viser is wired into my hand warmer before the switch i think. And the guy who put it on put a resitior on to limit the power goin to the helmet.

Well my sled doesn't have elec start so power coming off the motor is AC 12V. It would have to have a rectifier to make it DC. Handgrips and lights all run off AC power. They don't care as it only heats the elements. Just wondering if the helmet had anything it it to make it require DC. I guess it doesn't so I shall wire it up.
