Yes, all the way counterclockwise is 495. I would turn it to a smidge clockwise, so that it's around 550amp or so. The software will limit the current to like 506 or 509 amps or something.

Battery amps set to 511 is basically 511 amps. It's about a 1-1 mapping. Maybe 506 or something, but really close.
