Victron – Precision monitoring!
The essential function of a battery monitor is to calculate ampere-hours consumed and the state of charge of a battery. Ampere-hours consumed is calculated by integrating the current flowing in or out of the battery. In case of a constant current, this integration is equivalent to current multiplied by time. A discharge current of 10A during 2 hours, for example, amounts to 20Ah consumed. Victron battery monitors are based on a powerful microprocessor, programmed with the algorithms needed for precision monitoring.
Standard information and alarms
- – Battery voltage (V).
- – Battery charge/discharge current (A).
- – Ampere-hours consumed (Ah).
- – State of charge (%).
- – Time to go at the current rate of discharge.
- – Visual and audible alarm: over- and under voltage, and/or battery discharged.
- – Programmable alarm or generator start relay.
BMV 700: low cost ultra high resolution monitor
- – Highest resolution: 10mA (0,01A) with 500A shunt.
- – Can be used with 50, 60 or 100mV shunts, current rating from 100A to 1000A
- – Lowest current consumption: 4mA @12V and 3mA @ 24V.
- – Easiest to wire: the BMV 700 comes with shunt, 10 meter RJ 12 UTP cable and 2 meter battery cable with fuse; no other components needed.
- – Easiest to install: separate front bezel for square or round appearance; ring for rear mounting and screws for front mounting.
- – Broadest voltage range: 9.5 – 95 VDC without prescaler needed.
- – Communication port (Isolated RS232 interface is needed to connect to a computer)
