Hello Everyone,
I have purchase a DC ammeter for measuring output current from Solar Charge Controller to Battery but on the internet everyone used this for measuring either solar panel input current or DC load current so I am a quite worried should I use this ammeter for the said purpose is it suitable ? Please reply quickly as I have already connected the shunt and ammeter on the negative side of SCC and battery

Is 100a the maximum it will see?
And is it rated for the voltage it will see?
Yes both Voltage and Current to be measured are within ranges but here current will flow in both directions like in the night time solar charge controller will be on stamdby mode and taking some current from battery so will the ammeter show that current also?

If it's capable of doing so.
I don't know what the specs are.
