So I want to see my alternator's contribution to my house battery
bank. All the other sources are currently (see what I did there?) monitored by the Victron Smart Shunt.
Here are the basics...
I have a Balmar
614 controlling an externally regulated alternator
that charges the house bank directly. That alternator
is grounded to the primary DC bus bar along with every other load, source or chassis but I'm not getting the information I need as some of you may have already guessed because the case is also grounded to the mounts on the 4108 block.
A Victron DC to DC charger
maintains the start battery
which is connected to the 4108 ignition "ON" which powers up gauges, Start Button and the 614. The Ignition input is the only 12v source from outside the house bank that's connected to the 614.
614 is attached to the house bank using the Alt temp, Battery temp, Voltage Sense, Grounded and the ungrounded connection. The ungrounded connection is from the input (alternator) side of the service
switch between the alternator output and the house bank.
614's Stator and Field are wired directly to the Alternator and the Tach Out is feeding my Tachometer at the helm
Everything is fabulous BUT I would like my alternator to be monitored like the other charge sources Solar
Whats the solution?
