Amp gauges?

On my Columbia 8.7 I have two amp gauges on the electrical panel. One is from 0-100 and the other from 1-25. Obviously they are for two different things . Any insight?
Thanks I sometime get overwhelmed with the systems but I love my boat.

Re: Amp gauges?

Most likely one is AC amps (0-25) and the other is DC amps (0-100)

They should be labeled either AC or DC as well as Amps or Volts

Re: Amp gauges?

No. They could be used to monitor 2 different things though - for example solar and alternator. Confirm where they or the shunts are connected.
