More info

The battery monitors calculates the state of charge of a battery and keeps track of the ampere hours consumed from the battery by integrating the current flowing in or out of the battery.
It comes with a round head unit, a square bezel overlay, a screw ring for mounting, a 10m UTP RJ12 cable, a fused power supply cable and a 500A/50mV shunt. Because of the high voltage application, the shunt is housed in a special enclosure.

BMV-700 series: Precision Battery Monitoring

Battery ‘fuel gauge’, time-to-go indicator, and much more

The remaining battery capacity depends on the ampere-hours consumed, discharge current, temperature and the age of the battery. Complex software algorithms are needed to take all these variables into account. Next to the basic display options, such as voltage, current and ampere-hours consumed, the BMV-700 series also displays state of charge, time to go, and power consumption in Watts.

Bluetooth Smart (SMART MODELS ONLY - SUCH AS THE 712 SMART, 710H SMART, YOU CAN USE A VICTRON VE. DIRECT TO BLUETOOTH INTERFACE TO LOG INTO THE BMV https://www.createenergy.co.za/home/326-victron-vedirect-bluetooth-smart-dongle.html )

Use the Bluetooth Smart dongle to monitor your batteries on Apple or Android smartphones, tablets, macbooks and other devices.

Easy to install

All electrical connections are to the quick connect PCB on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable. Included: RJ12 cable (10m) and battery cable with fuse (2m); no other components needed.

Also included are a separate front bezel for a square or round display appearance, a securing ring for the rear mounting and screws for the front mounting.

Easy to program (with your smartphone! (SMART MODELS ONLY OR THE VE DIRECT TO BLUETOOTH SMART DONGLE CAN BE USED - https://www.createenergy.co.za/home/326-victron-vedirect-bluetooth-smart-dongle.html)

A quick install menu and a detailed setup menu with scrolling texts assist the user when going through the various settings.

Alternatively, choose the fast and easy solution: download the smartphone app (Bluetooth Smart dongle needed)

Midpoint voltage monitoring (BMV-702 only)

This feature, which is often used in industry to monitor large and expensive battery banks, is now for the first time made available at a low cost, to monitor any battery bank.

A battery bank consists of a string of series connected cells. The midpoint voltage is the voltage halfway along the string. Ideally, the midpoint voltage would be exactly half of the total voltage. In practice, however, deviations will be seen, that depend on many factors such as a different state of charge for new batteries or cells, different temperatures, internal leakage currents, capacities and much more.

Large or increasing deviation of the midpoint voltage, points to improper battery care or a failed battery or cell. Corrective action following a midpoint voltage alarm can prevent severe damage to an expensive battery. Please consult the BMV manual for more information.

Standard features

BMV-700H: 60 to 385 VDC voltage range

No additional parts needed. Note: suitable for systems with grounded negative only (battery monitor is not isolated from shunt).

Other battery monitoring options

- Lynx Shunt VE.Can

More about midpoint voltage

One bad cell or one bad battery can destroy a large, expensive battery bank. When batteries are connected in series, a timely warning can be generated by measuring the midpoint voltage. Please see the BMV manual, section 5.2, for more information. We recommend our Battery Balancer (BMS012201000) (https://www.createenergy.co.za/battery-monitors/290-victron-battery-balancer-8719076020950.html ) to maximize service life of series-connected batteries.
