    EarthX Battery Monitor

    I have an EarthX battery in an RV-6 with dual 5600s and want to connect the battery monitoring wire to the EFIS. My questions, if it's possible, which pin do we use, how does the 5600 respond when it gets the 12v signal, and how do we program the settings to know that input is the battery monitor.
    Thank you,
    Buster

    EarthX has a monitor function with a dedicated lead that is intended to go to an annunciator lamp or LED. I don't recall the voltage, but it isn't 12v. I have two of them in my RV-10. Both monitor leads are run to an input pin on the EFIS. There are three of these input ports on each screen (if you have more than one). You can configure the text message that appears on the screen and whether the alert is triggered by going high or low.

    Thanks. You're correct, it's not 12v. It simply goes to ground. Rob sent the instructions to get this connected and on the EFIS. I can share them if anyone wants them. I'm not the builder, and the manuals I have don't address this, so I'm thankful for a company with fantastic customer support!
