Short Description:  Updated Breaker List & Discussed with Aerotronics

Did additional research to confirm/complete the breaker size review done yesterday. Updated the Excel spreadsheet to reflect the final breakers planned for the panel with revised breaker sizes.

Sorted the spreadsheet by breaker size and developed a count of breakers by size. Sent the resulting list an counts to Jason at Aerotronics.

Discussed panel progress and questions with Jason at Aerotronics. Panel cutting and prep now expected to be completed and panel shipped next week instead of this Friday.

Tried to find information on current draw for starter activation circuit. Couldn't find anything on this on either Sky Tec's website nor Lycoming's website, nor with a Google search. Therefore will use the 10 amp breaker and #18 AWG wire called out in Van's OP37-13 wiring diagram.

Need to check the shop to see if B&C provided the 70 amp and 40 amp breakers with the alternators.

In discussion with Jason regarding ability to read currents in 3 different places with the G3X, he suggested just read the current from the main alternator and to/from the battery. Then suggested that the B&C standby alternator wiring harness may have a hall effect current sensor already installed which is run back to the voltage regulator, and that the regulator output indicating a current > 20 amps could be input into the G3X for a warning. Since the standy alternator only generates power when the primary alternator fails (voltage drops), this should provide the most useful information.

Checking with Garmin G3Xpert via email regarding ability to have 3 currents input and displayed.
