EMON voltage readings after SAR V3 install

Postby BobA on Sun Sep 02, 2012 1:02 pm

My EMON II started reporting multiple voltage readings for B1 after installing the new SAR V3 regulator. At full charge the B1 voltage reads 25.22 v, 25.14 v, 19.67 v, 12.6 v, 18.08 v. The Amps are reading 8.4 A, 7.0 A, 4.7 A, 4.6 A, 6.4 A. The English read out appears to be functioning correctly and as it did previously.

I have read everything in the Board that I could find but no mention of this type of concern.

I have 4 AGM 8 D batteries for my house and one AGM starter battery. I also have an Ample Power Eliminator and Alternator Current Sensor in the system. The EMON only started this new reading pattern after updating to the SAR V3.

Do I need to reset the EMON to work with the SAR V3? Are they compatible?

Remove power from the monitor and after a couple seconds, connect it again.

I removed the power for a couple of seconds and reconnected. No change. Still scrolling.

I disconnected the power by unscrewing the red power line coming to the terminal block. When reconnected I chose Kwikeys. When. B1 comes back up it starts scrolling.

It sounds like a keypad failure.

That can be fixed - about $175.00

Thank you. I assume that I need to replace the battery monitor.

Replace it or get it fixed.

Oh, I see that now. I will look into the options.
