Default Re: Digital Voltmeter Display Installed

Follow-up to my question about DIP switches... my first meter was DOA (I thought I was the unlucky one).. showing random segments.

Second meter was received fairly quickly (2 weeks?), and appeared to work well on 12V. As soon as the discrete input was connected to 36V, it fried the unit. Either the DIP switch wasn't working, or something else was mucked up. He blamed the user, as he has for the other users of this forum. I shipped him my (2) defective units back mid June and just received the replacement on Tuesday.

Really hoping this unit works.

you probably wired it wrong and blew up the meter... LOL! That seems to be the first excuse.

Actually you might have if it blew but just in case here is the way it should be wired

Your settings should be:

Dip switches 1-5
Dip 1 & 2 are OFF
Dip 3,4 & 5 are on.

Use the same ground, Black & Blue wire, going to NEG for both 12 volt and 36 volt = dip 4 on.

#1 on picture = Red wire is for 12 volt POS
#2 on picture = Black wire is for 12 volt GROUND
#3 on picture = Green wire is for 36 volt POS
#4 on picture = Blue wire is for 36 volt GROUND

Power = low voltage
Input = the battery pack voltage

Is this how you had your's wired? Good luck

One other thing... These meters don't like any moisture on them so make sure you keep their "backs" covered!

With a converter, can we run common ground (DIP4=ON) without issues ? I'd be more inclined to pull discrete 12V+/- from the converter. Thoughts ?

Scuba....Dip #4 was "off".....and black and blue went to different negative sources..black to 12v neg, and blue went to 48v neg.....U sure you'd wanna "bridge" a 12v and 48v system?....

It worked for almost 2 months.....

Yep... sure! Mine and pjs are wired the same, my only problems were the digit placement with the #3 Dip Switch

I should have added that grounding separately is fine as well as long as Dip Switch #4 is in the OFF position.

Don't know if this is the same meter or not but I just ordered one and it should be here in a few days.
We will see if I have any better luck with this one than you guy have had with the Wong one....
