No,my question is will it only operate on 24 volt service?
Expert:  Jack replied 1 month ago.

You can see that model number at that link and it clearly says 12 volts

If it doe snot indicate 24 volts then i would not try it , more than a chance you will blow it

Is this to install in a truck that runs on 24 volts ?
