    I'm looking for a power monitor for the EHU.. basically a panel mounted digital ampmeter with a range 0 - 16 amps.. or wattmeter.

    I know Maplin sell 13A plug in types but has anyone seen a panel mounted version ?

    Sorry didn't test the link - defaults back to product page.

    Look under Electrical then General and Zig components

    Hi Keith

    Thanks, I searched there but can't see anything to monitor the EHU amps.. :Sad:

    AFAIK Zig units only monitor the 12v side of life..

    Hi Jim
    There may be someting here for you AC Digital Meters - Blue Sea Systems

    All of the electrical controll systems in my van are manufactured by blue sea and so dont let the feeling that their all about boats bother you.

    Cheers Jim :Smile:

    Thanks Jim

    PN 8247 looks just the job, I'm familiar with Bluesea products, but I'm struggling to find a UK retailer, they only list wholesalers, ..but I'll keep looking

    Cheers

    Jim

    Exactly what's needed but in a panel version.. it would be a bit tricky mounting this but a possibility ..

    thanks for the idea

    Hi Bryan

    Not wide off the mark, thanks, ideal size,
    but it needs a CT (current transformer), not sold by the seller.
    Someone somehere will sell both.. just need to keep lookiing..


    As an aside, you would think this would be a popular thing to have fitted in a motorhome, or as a retrofit, I know the yanks fit them now.. :RollEyes:

    The 20 amp one I linked to needs a


    '20A 75mV Shunt must be used for the meter to read/measure current.'

    Is that any easier to come by or is that an expensive hard to get extra too?
