Hi, I am running some heated gloves and sox while riding my motorcycle. Flat out each glove / sock draws 1 amp. 48 watts total for all garments, thats a lot for a m/c to power! I have a pair of variable pwm controllers to regulate the power/heat to the sox and the gloves independantly of one another, in pairs. I am concerned though about the total draw from the vehicle's electrical system and I'd like to keep it to 1 amp max total for gloves and sox. I'd like to have a simple no fuss indication of the total current draw from the bike. A green light for <1amp and a red light for >1 amp. I'm thinking of putting a current shunt, of say 1 ohms, in the garment ground circuit so that I can use an LM3914 to give me the indication. I am unsure however how the LM3914 will react to the pwm nature of the current through the shunt and what kind of filtering to apply to its input signal ? Google and I, cannot seem to find any references to 3914's in pwm environments, try as I might. Advice? The other way to do this of course is to use ganged pots on the pwm controllers so that c/w is say more heat to gloves less to sox and cc/w is the other way around. Then I'd limit the max duty cycle with fixed resistors so neither could go more than 50% dutycycle. Lights are cooler though and the 3914 method gives more flexibility. Thanks, Brian H.
