Question
New eLogger incorrect pack voltage

Just installed a new eLogger and latest software. After about 1/2 hour of testing the pack voltage and amperage now show 42 volts and 0.8a. I have a 7.2v pack, receiver and brushed esc connected with the motor disconnected. Before this happened voltage and amps were correct. Is it possible I messed up some configuration parameter or is this a hardware failure?
Any advice will be appreciated.

Follow the Trouble Shooting ships at the bottom of the manual .pdf file in regards to voltage and amperage and then check again.

I had a bad eLogger. You can see my thread on it here

Thanks for the reply, Ken. Unfortunately my voltage is way off, reading 40+
volts for a 7.2v pack so I suspect a component failure. But any more suggestions will be welcome. Stan

Fixed!

It works properly now. I uninstalled all Eagle Tree software, deleted all associated files, cleared the registry then reloaded the software. My guess is that something relating to my older car data recorder files was causing the problem. Anyway, I'm happy now. Stan
