wireless power meter

Volts , Amps, KwHr, AmpHr, capacity, SOC, etc...

[image]

sender and hall effect coil go at battery

display goes where-ever (as long as in signal range)

No pulling wires between the (2) pieces

going to mount sender at the battery (of course)

going to put display over the fridge where the fuse box and breakers are

the furnace is under the fridge, and no easy way to pull wire inside from the battery in basement or the OEM house mount up front behind the grill

converter is in basement, with my add-on 4D agm

meter should arrive middle next week

$40 on ebay

I went looking after remembering somebody (Mexi?) had posted a link many months back

After you get it, and figure out how to install it, could you test it out and post the results here?

The link you posted shows the sender and meter are connected by USB cable, not wireless. Can you show us the link to what you purchased, that is wireless?

If you read the description it does say 'wireless' and describes the 'transformer' as a hall effect device.

is the USB cable then an alternative means of connecting the transformer to the meter?

Could be I suppose the transformer is wired to the sending unit I suppose.

Yep the sending unit has it's own power supply. Try extending the receiver wire to around 40" then changing orientation.

there are (3) electronic pieces , be sides the various wires

the 'Hall effect sensor' (not a transformer), yes it connects to the data sending unit
the 'data module/wireless sender which can power the display'
the display unit which can be used wireless and powered separately from the data sender

this one can be powered by 6-60vdc
can measure 0-120vdc, and 100amp

think of the display as a combination remote display and keyboard
think of the sender as the data accumulation module and remote connection to the display
the hall effect device is the current flow sensor
voltage measurement is taken by the data unit from its power input line

there are units that measure 200, 300, 500 amps

i will follow after it is installed
