I would like to use the mayfly to log a solar panel, it’s battery, and the load. I’d like to log voltage and amperage. Can anyone tell me what I need besides the board?
The system I want to measure is a 7ah sla battery, a 20w 12v solar panel, and a 5v webcam behind a ubec in an owl house. The battery runs out before morning despite my calculations and I want to know why.
Specifically what do I use to connect the board to measure A and V?
