"Doc Wattson" Amp Hour Meter & DC Ammeter

The Doc Wattson meter is our standard Watt's Up Watt meter model WU100 modified to have higher Ah and Wh limits. This helps for measuring systems that handle more energy. e.g., wind power, solar power, marine and large battery systems. I.e., it is a Higher Energy version of the Watt's Up WU100.

Doc Wattson changes compared to our standard Watt's Up model WU100 are described below.

Upon power up the meter's screen shows: "RCE HEx.x" where x.x is the version number.
