Adding non-flex charge controller

Hi, I want to add (parallel) a single PWM charge controller to our FlexPowerOne system. The PWM controller has it's own breakers- I would like to send the PWM output into the FPO and terminate the pos(+) on the incoming Batt + connector, and the PWM neg(-) output to the same side of the shunt that the FlexMax80 is connected.....this should give monitoring of the power, but I realize the PWM controller will not be "controlled" by the FlexNetDC monitoring device.........does this sound correct or Ok? any opinions....THX!

With verified polarity match and proper over current protection in place it would allow you to find out for yourself if it works.

Thanks, yes, we'll find out! Hopefully we don't end up with sparks flying.... :-}
