Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Link10 Battery Monitor Issues

Mark, I installed a Link 10 on my last boat and found the manual confusing, I thought it was just me , glad to read that Bill  found it confusing as well. A few years ago I installed a Victron meter. Very similar to the Link 10 , but the manual seemed easy to follow . It has worked well measuring the input from the solar panels, wind gen. and engines .

We are having issues with our Link10 battery monitor.
 
We have reset and re-programmed the unit a number of times trying to fix this issue over the past few months. We are certain it is programmed correctly. The unit did work correctly and reset itself after charging up until about 6 months ago.
 
The unit is not measuring an accurate flow of amps going into or out of the battery bank. It is off by a factor of about 5 amps. Example: We are on a mooring buoy and the unit reads 5 A (positive) as our current load. We know we are using about 5-6 amps right now. The number should be negative. We have no chargers running. If we turn off everything DC with the large red battery handles, it will read 10 A indicating we are putting 10 amps into the battery. Because the unit is not correctly measuring the amp flow, it is not counting down or resetting when charged.
 
Has anyone else had issues with this that can give some pointers of things to check? Do these go bad?
 
 
 
 
With best regards,
