Fw500 to fw1000

Post by jessekuz »

A couple questions.
Can I combine 2 Fw500 to essentially make a fm1000?
I assume just use one mate and one hub can be used.

Can 2 fndc be used in the same system?
Thanks everyone

Hi,

Only one FNDC/HUB/MATE may be used per system.

Although technically you can combine two FW500 systems after considering combining your proper DC and AC connections. Having a 1000 solution is preferred.

Correct.

As long as you maintain the same ratio of 10,000:1 you can up size your shunt. ie. 500A/50mV or 1000A/100mV
This way you can parallel multiple devices on a single shunt.
