The shunts are an electrical component through which your main battery wires pass. There are also to very small wires connected to these shunts, which connect to the FlexNetDC. This allows the FNDC to measure the amount of current going through the shunt. FNDC can support up to three of them, you probably just have two. One measure the input and output from your charger/inverter. The other measures the input from your solar.
What Tallgirl is suggesting, is that you make sure they are both turned on and that the measurements from those shunts matches the other devices. This is a method to double-check things. Let’s say your FX is on shunt A and your solar is on shunt B. If the FX says its inverting 200 watts of power and shunt A is reading -4 amps of current then you’re on the right track! If the solar charge controller says it’s charging with 15 amps and shunt B is reading +15 amps, then again, things look good.
You can check these from your Mate by looking at STATUS > FNDC and comparing to the CC and FX numbers.
