Our Xantrex Link 20 is not operating properly and needs to be replaced. My first thought was to replace the unit with a Link Lite or Link Pro, utilize the existing shunt and minimize effort. Is this shunt similar enough that it can be used with the new units? Is this a good idea?
Iíve also considered replacing the Link 20 with the Balmar
200. Iím concerned that the shunts are different enough to create a bigger job.
For example the existing shunt has 2 neg leads in and 2 out. The Balmar
only has 1 in and 1 out. I suspect I could just stack the negative leads on one post in and out the achieve the same thing. That said I donít know if thatís the way itís done.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
Please bear with the boat
is new to us and the 12 VDC system is more complex that I'm used to.
