Any possibility? Inverter control panel switchover??

So Ive happily upgraded my old Freedom inverter which had a great battery charger and solid output, but not pure sine. And installed a nice new AIMS full sine 2500 which will easily run anything on board, my washer and dryer, heaters and appliances. And it has a nifty three stage battery charging output that seems to work great. But the control panel is really simple with just on/off and status LEDs and none of the amperage draw indicators or battery bank voltage level that the old freedom panel has. Its so nice to see the DC draw and the amperage of charging output. Those are great features.

I just WISH there were a way that the old freedom control panel that plugs in with a phone cord just like the new AIMS panel does could be substituted for the simple AIMS panel...A phone line is a four wire system, right? I wonder if anyone knows how its wired and what it would take to adapt it. Id sure love to have those charge/draw level indicators available as with the old Freedom Xantrex.

Lots of really knowledgeable techs on here so thanks in advance to any who may know!

Add a battery monitor. Like a victron bvm 712.

If you had a link 1000 or 2000 screen it will still work for this. You would need both screens.

Thanks! I had a 2000 but replaced it with a 4000, but still using the control panel for the 2000 which works fine for either hart-freedom unit. Its got great bar graphs which Id love to be able to use with the new AIMS to monitor charge levels and draw under inverter use.
