2000 American Eagle -- battery shunt specs

I have the original Source Manager (yes it is still kicking) which has the Xantrex
control panel. I would like to add a better system for knowing the battery status and condition. Does anyone know the specs of the SHUNT used for the Xantrex. From what I have gathered I can add another monitor in parallel with the Xantrex, if it uses the same shunt size in its design.

The information I am looking for would be something like 100A/75MV or
500A/50MV or such.

I have not found the information in any literature I have for either the Source Manager or the Xantrex panel

Since I know several people here had either replaced those systems or modified theirs, I was thinking someone might know the information.

thx Dale

This may or may not help.
When I redid my batt bay I too installed a much better batt monitoring system with a shunt.

It was the Tri-Metric 2030-RV model. It comes with 2 different shunt options and are excellent monitors but not cheap.

FWIW...I have a Xantrex 1000 inverter but not a Xantrex panel.

thanks for the reply.

I really want to Add a simple monitor and leave the Xantrex panel in place.
From my research if the SHUNT requirement is the same I can tap in in parallel and use both displays.

I don't really want to remove the Xantrex panel as it has many more functions than a battery monitor such as; (inverter control -- charging parameters -- battery equalization) and more.

thx again -- Dale
