Reading 6s lipo cell voltages with LTC6803-4

Hello,

I want to read the voltage level of each cell of my 6s lipo battery. To do this I've bought a LTC6803-4, but I have a question: is it possible to connect the balancing wires of the battery directly to the C0-C6 pins of the LTC6803-4, without many resistors or capicitors, or are they required ?

Sorry for this question, but my knowledge about electronics is still a bit limited.

Thanks for your help Johannes

I guess your question is about components shown on Fig.8 of the datasheet. According to the datasheet description those filters are optional. You can connect C0-C6 pins to the balancing wires directly, but without filters measurements will be less accurate.
