It could be from 30 for an analog up to 90 for a digital.and you just need some wire and ends.

That is correct for the power supply. If you are using it on a 36v system it goes across 2x6v bats for power and if you have a 48v cart use 1x8v battery. The amperage terminal will give you the current draw up to 200 amps. You must also use a 200A,75mV DC shunt for this meter, available seperately. I think they are around $12.

Doug have you installed one of these? If you need a shunt across 2 batteries it would form a short it seems.
