one Wbjr for classics and kids
« on: May 29, 2020, 08:59:34 PM »
Hi gang,

I have both classics and kids on one battery bank, my shunt has the wbjr attached on one side and a victron pcb on the other and is currently going to the master kid.

My question is, can I use the same wbjr for the classic by running the wire from the wbjr to both, or will this cause issues?

Thanks,
Ben.

Only one host (classic or kid) for the WB Jr. can be used at a time.

Bi-directional data and power goes over that one wire.

Thanks for the reply boB,

I have limited room where my shunt is located, is it possible to place/stack  another wbjr directly atop the existing one if the screws were longer or will this not work either?

Thanks,
Ben.

Yes, stacking two WB Jr's on top of each other should work fine.

We do this with the WB Jr. and the Magnum shunt monitor now.
