The distribution panel on my boat is a Blue Seas traditional metal panel with AC/DC breakers, both AC and DC analog voltage meters, and a DC ammeter. The entire system is less than a year old, wiring
the ncluded. All circuits are properly fused. 4 6v house bank batteries, and a starter battery
are charged via a 140w solar
panel controlled by a mppt
controller. An ACR sends the charge to both banks as needed.
The problem of is with the DC ammeter.
With the DC main breaker on, and flipping on various circuits, I can see the needle move showing positive current
readings. However, if I flip the AC main on, the needle moves to the left below the scale. The meter is wired correctly as per the Blue Seas installation
Has anyone experienced this odd meter behavior, and found a solution?
