To clarify, the link 2000 (or 1000 etc) comes with a shunt that you
install on the battery ground cable just before the battery. Some
additional wires come off this shunt and run to the monitor. It may
be advisable to buy the special wire bundle with the monitor if you
have a long run, as if you have two banks, it is something like 8
wires and they must be twisted together. For one bank, I think it is
still 6 wires. Somehow the shunt magically measures the amp usage. I
guess it probably isn't magic, but it works well.
