Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Blue Sea AC Multimeter Installation

Hi Alexandre, I can confirm that an extension on the ammeter (torrid) wires will not be an issue. Do use a twisted pair of wires to minimize RF noise being broadcast (something already twisted or you can make your own twisted pair). Not terribly critical the number of twists per inch but just roughly match what is already there.  The AC on the line you are measuring induces a small current in the lines going to the meter.  I'm surprised that BlueSea doesn't make a statement about line extension. They are a very responsive company and I would bet a phone call to their tech support would confirm this.  If you find out anything to the contrary, please let us know.

This was one of the best upgrades I made and we usually monitor watts to assure we aren't overloading anything. The first one I bought lasted 6 mo and the display failed. They replaced no questions asked.

All the best,
