Victron BMV 700 battery monitor including shunt. 

The BMV-700 is the latest high precision battery monitor from Victron. The BMV-700 monitors voltage and current of a single battery bank and calculates power, state-of-charge and time-to-go. 

Installation is simply a case of connecting the supplied shunt in the negative battery cable, mounting the monitor in a 52mm diameter hole and connecting the wires. An optional wall enclosure is available if surface mounting is preferred. 

 

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: RJ 12 cable (10 m) and battery cable with fuse (2 m); no other components needed. Also included are a separate front bezel for a square or round display appearance, a securing ring for rear mounting and screws for front mounting.

Very Low Current Draw from the Battery:  Current consumption: 0,7Ah per month (1mA) @12V and 0,6Ah per month (0,8mA) @ 24V Especially Li-ion batteries have virtually no capacity left when discharged until low voltage shutdown. After shutdown due to low cell voltage, the capacity reserve of a Li-ion battery is approximately 1Ah per 100Ah battery capacity. The battery will be damaged if the remaining capacity reserve is drawn from the battery. A residual current of 10mA for example may damage a 200Ah battery if the system is left in discharged state during more than 8 days.

Bi-Stable Alarm Relay:  Prevents increased current draw in case of an alarm.

Other Features: 

  • Battery voltage, current, power, ampere-hours consumed and state of charge
  • Remaining time at the current rate of discharge
  • Programmable visual and audible alarm
  • Programmable relay, to turn off non critical loads or to run a generator when needed
  • 500 Amp quick connect shunt and connection kit
  • Shunt selection capability up to 10.000 Amps
