Nice but note external shunt block By Guest
Blue Sea Systems makes nice products, and this is one of them. The OLED looks great, and I particularly like that it distinguishes between energy in versus out with a signed value.
My only concern is how well the display will hold up to abuse. I'm particularly concerned with the faceplate becoming detached in heat and/or humidity. I wish Blue Sea had avoided using a faceplate altogether. Just print the lettering right on the plastic chassis. Perhaps the faceplate makes it a bit more splash proof and protects the OLED. Whatever—I still wish glue/epoxy/adhesive wasn't involved.
Note also that this product uses a mountable external shunt block that is about as large as the display component itself. This makes the wiring more complicated than simply source in, load out. As space was a concern for me, I made the shunt block (which is mostly a hunk of metal) do double duty as both a shunt and a ground junction block. To accomplish this, I simply had to replace one of the short M6 bolts with a longer one to accommodate all my ring terminals.
