Hello,
Putting in a 70 amp alternator for my dual hdx install. Do I need a larger ammeter shunt? Also, I have a 75 amp fuse coming off the alternator, do I just wire the shunt and the fuse in series?

Thanks
Greg

Our shunt is rated for 60A, so you'll want one rated higher than that. Our sensor definition file for a shunt specifies 1mV/A, but you can edit the file to customize for other ratios. We don't have a specific third party shunt recommendation.
