Gotta say I love the meter Scotty.... Sure is nice when you are around the cart to just take a glance and see how the pack is looking.

Do all precedents have the voltage wire behind the dash?

Thanks

Not yet, hopefully this weekend. I am currently pursuing nurf bars with my dealer. My wife would benefit from them and the cart I saw with one looked HOT. My dealer is giving me great prices since I purchased the cart from him. Hopefully, install the meter this weekend and I might be able to figure out how to attach pics. One thing I have done in preparation is to paint the scottyb bezel with a good flat black paint. My cart has the flat black thing going on and the stainless bezel may stand out to much against the black dash. If I dont like it black, strip the paint and repolish the stainless.

Scotty, what is an acceptable range when you hit the go pedal and watch the meter? From a dead stop mine will read lets say 50v and when I hit the go pedal it will drop to around 46/47v and rise some as I achieve top speed. I imagine there is a large initial draw on the pack from a dead stop.

I am looking forward to scottb's answer, but that was a similar question I had. So the meter does go up and down with giving the gas/juice and letting off. I would also assume it will change as the lights, horn, etc. gets used? That can give me an idea how much the accessories truely draw.

It will show you any draw that is happening with your pack immediately. Also, after the cart stops you will also see the meter climb a little as the pack stabilizes.

The meter samples the pack 3 times a second. This gives a real time readout and makes it an effective tool for reading load test of the battery pack. The cart provides the load such as hard acceleration (better yet is hard uphill acceleration). A drop of 4-5v or less is acceptable, the pack voltage should recover when the load is removed. There will be lots of variables, tire size, weight, SOC, etc.
