what gauges do i want

Recommended Posts

Hi i'm trying to figure out what gauges i actually want/need

its for the battery/charging side of the system

at the minute i have an amp gauge fitted on each engine -60 to +60

i have 3 battery banks 1 bat for each engine and then a set up of 5 x 110ah for the domestic side

i'd like a gauge so i know whats left in each bank obviously

although really i just need one for the domestic bank

so what do i need?

amp

volts

or battery condition?

thanks

The NASA battery monitor is a good cheap, cheerful and effective instrument for that job, one of the displays on it is like a fuel gauge showing how much capacity is left in AH which is most useful for a domestic bank.

That's the great thing about the NASA unit, it gives all three in one display. :grin:
