Panel Current Meter – 0 to 9.99A: Put a current meter anywhere with this very handy display. This panel meter requires a DC voltage to run, and then has two thick gauge wires to measure current draw. A shunt is already on board so its very easy to hook up! (read more)


Panel Volt Meter – 4.5V to 30VDC: Put a voltage meter anywhere with this very handy display. This panel meter simply connects to whatever DC supply you are trying to track, easy to wire up! (read me)
