I was always missing information in the cockpit how my alternators were charging. After some research I did find the AMP meter from Blue Sea. This unit has been working great on BL for the last 5 years.
If you have a Mastervolt MICC panel on your boat with a 500A shunt this Amp meter can easily be connected in parallel on the same shunt. On Bella Luna I installed the Blue Sea Amp meter under the windscreen and give us following advantages.
- You learn very fast how much electricity different equipment uses.
- You can see if something is left on that should not be on.
- You can see how much your alternators are charging. Problems will immediately be noticed.
