Car Battery Monitor
« on: January 11, 2017, 11:18:51 pm »
Can anyone provide some starting instructions on how one would go about using the MC-120 to monitor a car battery? Trying to figure out how I would wire the pins on the 120 to monitor the battery voltage level.

Hello!

You could easily do this using a voltage divider to measure the voltage on a car battery. You could look at similar pin setup that we used for some of our examples (Moisture sensor, light sensor, etc).
