Re: Smart regulator interfering with Volvo Penta motormanagement?

Several regulators can optionally sense current, which is to say they can measure the voltage across a shunt (resistor) and then calculate the current and act on the results. It is a matter of locating the shunt in the proper location as much as anything else. The Wakespeed WS-500 can do current sense with N-type alternators as well (this is an evolution of the OpenRegulator project).

An option with the SeaLithium regulator is to hook up a relay on one of the field wires to provide an emergency shutoff. Is it possible to intercept one of the wires coming off a brush, under the plastic cover? How easy would that be?
