4x4Direct has spoilt us with so many options to monitor our 12V systems. :thumbup:

Any idea of what I can use to monitor a 100V 10A pv system ??


Plain Volt and Amm meters are already a pretty penny for this, and the guys at ACDC dont carry much stock in this range ... :crazy:


HOPING to get something that can show the volts and ammps, and that can record high and low values, A.h, ....



anders moet ek maar hard smeek by Pieter om iets vir my in te bring ..... wonder of hier nog manne is wat sal belang stel in so iets ... (onthou dis nou vir heel ander volts as ons 4x4 stelsels)
