Power Management Panel 4 x AMPS, 4 x VOLTS, 1 X Amp Hr Counter
The latest software driven Power Management Panel is an extremely effective unit designed to monitor and display all the vital electrical information on an average boat. This enables important (potentially expensive) decisions to be made regarding faults and general on-board DC electrical power management. The information obtained also helps any third party engineer to identify problems.
The operation of the panel is based on 100 mV shunts. Shunts enable all current measurement to take place remotely from the instrument clusters, removing all the voltage drop and R.F.I. problems associated with running heavy duty cables up to a control panel and navigation instruments.
The new panel has a built in Ah counter on one channel, and in total enables 4 different amp readings, 4 different volt readings, and one Ah counter. The shunts of the system can be fitted in negative or positive cables (unlike most others). The counter counts the amps going into and out of the battery system. The amp hour counter setup and function are completely automatic and require no intervention from the user.
The background light ensures perfect legibility in daylight, direct sunlight and at night.
Each panel comes complete with a 200A shunt, (up to 3 extra shunts may be purchased) and a list of labels for the panel front.
The plastic box can either be surface or flush mounted by using the new parts.

A 200A shunt is suitable for inverters up to about 2000W at 12V / 4000W at 24V
A 400A shunt is suitable for inverters up to about 4000W at 12V. The shunts have a very high instant load ability, ie 1000A to start an engine etc is no problem on either size.
