Wizard setup for WatchMon4

This is a very important step where you enter the key information of your battery configuration, what type of CellMons will be used in your system and how many, selecting your shunt model, your total battery capacity, chemistry (Li-Ion, LiFePO4 or custom).  

You will most likely need the pin code to make changes

Where do I find the pin code 

Step 1 – You can start the "Wizard setup" from the "Setup check list"

 You can also click on "Menu" then click on "Tools"

 

Step 2 - Click on “Wizard Setup”

 

Wizard setup settings:

 

Step 3 - Select the cell chemistry type

The majority of 18650 cells are “Li-ion long life” but there are some LiFePO4 in cylindrical 18650 format (select “LiFePO4 Typical”). LiPo cells, select “Li-Ion Performance”. Selecting the wrong chemistry is very dangerous, if you’re not sure, STOP and don’t proceed to the next step until you know the correct type of cell and chemistry you’re using.

Step 4 – Select the CellMon type

  • If you bought the 14s starter kit, it is likely that you have “LongMon”.
  • LeafMon cell monitor please select "GenMon-8W".
  • TopMon cell monitor please select “LongMon”, both models share the same hardware settings

 

Step 5 – Select the number of CellMon boards connected to your system

 

Step 6 – Select the Shunt type:

If you bought the 14s Starter kit, select “ShuntMon2”

Step 7 – Add your battery Nominal Capacity per series or per CellMon in case of multiple boards per series.

Example: 80.5Ah type “80.5” and press the "enter" button, it will display “80.500” (which is the capacity number in mAh format)

 

Step 8 – Select the inverter/charger model from the list:

Step 9 – Click “Save” to apply the selected settings

Changes will be loaded and saved in your WatchMon hardware

 

Step 10 – Click “Menu” and go back to “Chart” (home screen)
