Re: Gauge Number from eBay ---- Wiring question, about 24 volt and "bridges" -- update for today


 

Here's a quick sketch of where to hook up an ammeter shunt so it measures all the current coming in or going out of Cal's current setup, two battery banks, running one at a time. (see attachment)

Nice USB charger, worthless ammeter. <sigh> ALL the current flowing in and out of the batteries has to go through the ammeter, or it's shunt, to give any meaningful information. Cal's two 80 lb. thrust motors should draw in the neighborhood of 80 amps at full load. That little ammeter could go up in a puff of smoke if abused with that much current. <g>
