BOGART ENGINEERING TRI-METRIC AMP-HOUR METER
Bogart Engineering TriMetric 2030 and 2030-RV
This meter operates on 12, 24 or 48 VDC. LEDs show volts, amps, and amp-hours. Amp-hours can be displayed directly or as “% full.” One LED indicates charging and fully-charged states. Another LED indicates when charging or equalization is needed and warns of low battery-voltage events. The meters also record minimum and maximum voltage, days since last charge, days since last equalized, and total lifetime amp-hours withdrawn. The TriMetric can be located up to hundreds of feet away from batteries using inexpensive four-conductor twisted-pair meter wire. A shunt is required for operation. Use the 500 A shunt on a 12 VDC inverter larger than 800 W, or a 24 VDC inverter larger than 1,600 W. Use a 1,000 A, 100 mV shunt for systems with stacked inverters or where continuous current is over 300 A. The 1,000 A/100 mV shunt has the same resistance as the 500 A/50 mV shunt and may be used interchangeably. Order the shunt separately. These meters work with battery banks up to 2,500 Ah.
The positive lead to the TriMetric should be fused with the included 1 A fuse. This meter can be mounted flush or with a wire mold. Trimetric meters are made in U.S.A., have dimensions of 4.5"W x 4.75"H, and are covered by a 2-year warranty.
