I have 2 questions about adding a Smartshunt to my system. The picture displays a simplified situation: 2 batteries in parallel, fed by a dynamo, Multiplus and MPPT (via Argofet). Now I want to add the batterymonitor and 2 questions have risen:
- Does it make a difference (or is it good or bad) on which of the 2 batteries the VBatt+ of the shunt is connected (A or B in the drawing)?
- I know I have to connect the shunt to the battery-minus without any other connections on that side. Since I have 2 batteries in parallel, I suppose the right position is C? Problem is that there is hardly any space over there where the minus-cables comes together and I have to use long(er) cables. On position D it would be much nicer (together with A for the powersupply / +). Is this a go or a no go?
Hope to hear from you
