Sadly the jaws on the Nipex do not meet and the bevel of the 'cutting' edge is so shallow that it is more like a crimper. Farnell are refunding me the cost and leaving me with the duff tool as it is not worth the returns cost etc.
The overlap with the 230v Mains: external is that they both take power from the inverter via a fuse box. There the fuse box feeds two internal circuits. The extension connection goes to the previously used three gang flying extension, now pretty much fixed to the wall and a 6A fuse that feeds a line to a) a junction box from where a cable goes through the wall to a 2 gang socket,
b) feed to another junction box to a 2 gang socket installed above the tool bench, and also
c) feeds a third 2 gang socket in the corner of the computer desk.
Have laid 13A cable to an external rubber housed 13A socket. This has a 13A plug in the toolroom which plugs into a 3 gang socket block which inturn plugs into the inverter.
October 20th Electrolyte levels are fine.
- I have labeled the two S6 145s A and B
and the cells in each are respectively (neg to pos), (pos to neg) ~ 1,2,3
Specific Gravity Readings
May 12th just before sunset.
A1 = 1.280 :: A2 = 1.275 :: A3 = 1.250 | B1 =1.280 :: B2 = 1.275 :: B3 = 1.260
This was before charging and I broke the hydrometer when cleaning so couldn't check the SG during or after charging which aslo included an automatic equalisation.
May 28th Mid afternoon when on float
A1 = 1.290 :: A2 = 1.292 :: A3 = 1.292 | B1 =1.292 :: B2 = 1.292 :: B3 = 1.260
The new Durite 472 has a thermometer for temp coefficients and although it was difficult to read it appears as though at least 6 points should be added, i.e. 1.290 becomes 1.296.
I spoke to Scotty at Durite who said SG's should be within 1%, i.e. 1.290 &plusmin; .0129 (0.013) so a range of 1.277 to 1.303 or 0.26 max diff.
