I am trying to sort out the electrical on my new (to me) boat. It has a Xantrex Freedom Marine 25 inverter with a Xantrex control (the kind with the LEDs), which seems to be working fine. I also discovered a Link 2000 on the boat, perhaps from a previous setup. I would like to use this to monitor amps in/out of the house battery bank (4 golf cart batteries), rather than just the crude "snapshot" LEDs which give me battery voltage and current amp usage.

Does anyone know if I can install the Link 2000 to just monitor the house battery amps in/out, without control of the inverter? Or should I just replace the newer unit with the old (still says Heart) Link 2000?

Thanks,

Chris

I dont know the answer..... but I do need a control panel for my Freedom 15.
Please let me know if you determine that you want to sell either one of them.
thanks in advance. tom

I'd recommend installing the Link 2000, since, IIRC, it can also control the Freedom series inverters.

thanks

thanks, I guess you hooked up your 2000 and like it.
Did you leave the standard one installed too?
Please keep me in mind if you have an extra.

Note: I posted a wanted item, too.
