Bogart Engineering PM-5000-U PentaMetric Input Unit

Written January 18, 2013

Good design, seems to do its job

I have the pentametric paired with the Ethernet unit on my small (125 watt) off grid system. For starters, Id like to compliment bogart for making it here in the US. Thats actually one of the reasons I chose it over the Xantrex link pro line. Wiring it up took a while because of how advanced this thing is. I have two 500 amp shunts (one measuring total battery in/out and the other measuring solar in). After getting it working I have to say I am very impressed with how much data this can supply you with and how accurate it is. The only problem I have with it is that it wont calculate solar watts. It can tell me how many amps are going in, but it wont multiply that by the voltage to calculate watts. Other than that, it seems to do its job. Ill write a second review on the Ethernet unit on its page instead of with the input unit. If I fix the wattage issue after I contact bogart Ill change this review to reflect it.
