Connecting solar and wind to an EMON II H1

Postby Jonah on Tue Jul 15, 2014 12:44 am

I apologize for my persistence but I’m not sure where else to go to gain the information I need to effectively use my EMON II H1 with solar and wind.
It sounds like the EM Relay (12v) is not available any longer. Can you confirm that?
Does Ample Power sell a shunt that I can use so that my EMON can monitor solar and wind input? If Ample Power doesn’t sell a shunt for this is there one from another company you would suggest?
If I don’t use a shunt and connect the solar and wind controllers directly to the batteries will the EMON be able to keep accurate track of the amp hours? From what I've read in the manuals it sounds like it won't because it won't be able to track the amp input the batteries are getting from the solar and wind.
Any input would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for your time.

I hope I can help on the shunts. You do not NEED shunts at the solar and wind inputs. The EMON already has a shunt that measures the input or output at the batteries and will accumulate that info. You may want to know the inout of each but it is not needed.
