Frequently asked questions
Do PICO and PICO one support lithium batteries?
What battery types do PICO and PICO one systems support?
External protocols support
Does PICO and PICO one support NMEA Protocol?

Can I use two or more PICO displays at once on a single battery monitoring system?
Should I use a shunt to monitor the battery current, voltage and temperature of my batteries, or is it sufficient to monitor only the battery voltage?
What is a battery bank?
How do I wire the shunts – to the negative (low) or the positive (high) side?
My boat has two separate electrical systems (battery banks) with different voltage (12V in 24V). Can I monitor both batteries with the one PICO at the same time?
The total current draw on my battery bank exceeds 500A. Your shunts only support up to 500A. What can I do?
Consumer and generator monitoring
Can I upgrade my PICO or PICO one battery monitor software (firmware upgrade)?
How long does the firmware upgrade take?
Is there a mobile app available for my PICO one and PICO?
What tank sensors are recommended/supported by the PICO Monitor?
Our system and tank modules are compatible with any tank sensor that outputs an analog signal (one sensor per tank) of either the voltage or resistance type signal.
RESISTANCE: 0 Ohm – 65000 Ohm (65kOhm) or anything in between VOLTAGE: 0.0V – 75.0V or anything in between
Pico is installed and working but showing wrong battery state of charge?
I would like to know if my solar panel gives enough energy to power the fridge. How can I do that?
I would like to monitor how much power do I get from my solar panels. Do you offer this option?
I would like to monitor the consumption of my inverter. Do you offer this option?
