Ek het presies so unit op ebay bestel baie lank terug. Ek het intussen hom installeer maar gebruik net die voltage meter vir nou (moet nog die shunt ens in sit).

Daai voltmetertjie werk lekker

Daar is voorraad by albei takke. Ek het eers net 30 ingevoer, so moenie te lank wag, maar ek sal wel weer kry wanneer die op is. Ek is beindruk met die kwaliteit.

en nou is daar drie minder in Brackenfell se tak .... :)


nou om n boksie te kry vir die montering .... sien ek spandeer weer n bietjie tyd in die garage :) :)


een meter vir die solar lyn
een meter tussen die Ctek en die battery (kan dan sien wat die solar OF die alternator laai na die battery)
een meter tussen die battery en die verdeel boks ...


en dan vir n paar eksperimente om die "myths" te bust .....

Hi Dean
With the shunt you measure the amps.You connect the earth wire through it and it measures the resistance of the electricity so you can see how much juice you use.
With this type of heavy duty shunt you can measure op to 100amps.

Hierdie boksie sommer by die elektriese winkel om die draai gekry. Hulle se dis die kleinste DB wat jy kry. Die metertjie pas pragtig, plus ek het 'n isolator om die battery uit te sny as dit nodig sou word.

Hy kos so in die omgewing van R 35. Koop hom by jou plaaslike elektriese winkel : as jy Pieter se winkel oorleef het gaan jy nie Yebo oorleef nie. :lol: :lol:

But please note that you get different sizes of shunts, I supply these with a 50 Amp shunt which will be more than enough for our general camping needs.

Dean VOLTS are measured in "parallel", thus easy to do.


AMPS must be measured in SERIES .... most meters only measure upto 10A, anything above this the circuitry just can cope with the amps (heat generated by the current flow).

so some clever kids figured out the "shunt meter" - by using a calibrated shut the majority of the amps pass through the shunt and just enough pass thrugh the meter to deliver a reading ....


As Piet says, the unit he sells has a shunt calibrated for measuring upto 50A.

Pieter, glo nie dis circuit breakers nie - dink dis 'n di-pole isolator (maw dit skakel altwee drade aan en af). ;-)

Doodreg, dit is slegs 'n " isolator ".

Wat die manne deurmmekaar gemaak het , was toe ek 'n tripswich gevra het. AC of DC ? Ek se toe DC. Hulle hou nie gewoonlik DC aan nie, dit moet bestel word. En niemand weet wat die verskil is nie, alhoewel dit apart in die katalogus is. Ek vat toe die beskikbare AC model.

Terug hier by die huis bel ek 'n kennis wat weet van die goed. Hy se die verskil is dat met die oorskakel van die skakelaar is daar 'n vonk as die twee punte naby mekaar kom, en die vonk is blykbaar erger by DC as by AC, dus word DC skakelaars se binnegoed sterker gebou om te hou. Bygese, hierdie spesifikasies sal seker eers in werking kom as jy goed soos kragstasies en dies meer begin bou. Vir ons gewone ouens sal dit nie saak maak nie.

Also keep in mind that these meter are paired with a specific size shunt. So if you are going to use a bigger or smaller shunt your readings are going to be incorrect

One question: how is the meter powered? Some meters can't be powered from the source that one is actually trying to measure, then one needs a DC-DC isolator. I assume this one doesn't need one?

I've been running shunts on both the battery lines to a DMM, with 2 switches I can measure volts and amps of both batteries, but this looks much better!!

Pieter is besig met instruksies.Kannie glo hulle vat so lank nie :twisted:

Daar is 2 bondels.Een met rooi en swart drade.Dis + en -.Koppel hulle op die battery se + en -
Dan die derde een het 3 drade.Geel Swart en Rooi.Die rooi gaan ook + toe en die swart en geel gaan na die shunt toe.
Hier is dit belangrik.Hulle word by die shunt se klein skroefis gekonnekteer en hulle lees die amps.
Die swart een moet wees by die negatief vanaf die battery waar hy op die shunt kom en die geel een op die kant waar jou toerusting wat die stroom trek wees.Belangrik dat hulle op die klein skroefies is.

Op die com site praat ons ook oor die meter.Die vraag het opgekom dat die shunt nie aaneenlopend kan werk nie en sal na 'n ruk verskillende lesing gee.Ek het dit nou getoets en dink hy gaan 100% werk.
So I just tested mine.When started up the compressor draws about 26ammps I did not connect it to the wheels.When I put my finger on the nozzle to give it some resistance it went up to just under 40amps.I never realised the compressor draws so much amps
I just let is run and it setteled on between 23-24 amps.I let it run for 10 minutes and it stayed the same.Between 23.5 - 24 amps

Chris on the wire sizes this is exactly why I went with this unit.You can use " thick" wires were as with the normal ones from Midas and Autozone.

George kyk ook na SarelF se antwoord - hy gebruik dieselfde tipe shunt meter nou al vir 50 000 km in sy Amarok (okay, ja ek het sulke vriende ook ...) ... DIREK gekoppel en werk nog goed.


die probleem gaan kom as die manne n groot inverter vir ure trek en daai shunt DRUK tot sy maks ....

Nou dat jy dit noem dit is by Sarel waar ek eerste van dit gehoor het.
Daai is onder ekstreem toestande.My stelsel gaan nie so erg hardloop nie.Hulle batterye gaan nie solank hou nie.

Ek dink die beste aplikasie gaan wees vir sonpanele soos jy gaan maak

Dankie Pieter vir die gauges... :thumbup: :thumbup:

Chris ek het ook soos jy 2 x 20A en 1 x 50A shunt gevat. Ek neem aan jy sit die 50A shunt aan die "yskas" kant van die hele besigheid en die ander twee in die sonpaneel stroom en in die ctek stroom? :think:

Thank you 4X4 DIRECT for the parcell I collected today with the amp/voltmeters and air vents I ordered from you guys.Speedy and correctly supplied and well packaged.I will install the first amm/voltmeter to Haboobs camper and test it and post my opinion of the meter.The quality of the meters appear to be of an acceptable standard.
