Tri-Metric battery monitor - I think mine's toast
I have a small 250 watt off-grid system that I put together in April. Everything has been working fine, including the Tri-metric battery monitor (TM-2020)...until last night. The voltage monitor seems to be OK, but the amp meter seems to have died. All it does now is slowly increase, one milliamp every couple of seconds, even during the night when there couldn't possibly be any energy coming in (confirmed when I shut off the breaker to cut off any input current). Even turning on the inverter and applying a load doesn't alter the slow count-up. I also tried removing the fuse to cut power to the Tri-metric, hoping it would reset or something, but it didn't change anything. My Xantrex C35 still shows input amps correctly (I have the meter option on it). I'm thinking I'm going to have to return it under warranty, but I'm wondering if anyone has seen this sort of thing before?
