The Victron SmartShunt 500A/50V is an all in one battery monitor, only without a display. Your phone acts as the display. The SmartShunt connects via Bluetooth to the VictronConnect App on your phone (or tablet) and you can conveniently read out all monitored battery parameters, like state of charge, time to go, historical information and much more.
Alternatively the SmartShunt can be connected and be read by a GX device. Connection to the SmartShunt is made via a VE.Direct cable.
The SmartShunt is a good alternative for a BMV battery monitor, especially for systems where battery monitoring is needed but less wiring and clutter is wanted. The SmartShunt is equipped with Bluetooth, a VE.Direct port and a connection that can be used for: monitoring a second battery, midpoint monitoring or a temperature sensor.
Monitored Battery Parameters include:
Battery State-of-Charge (SoC)
Voltage of up to 2 batteries
Time to go
Extensive historical information
... and much more
Auxilary Input Options: The SmartShunt can do more than comprehensively monitor your main battery bank - additionally you can choose to either:
Monitor the voltage of a second battery, for exmaple the starter battery or;
Connect a temperature sensor (optional accessory) for temperature compensated charging or;
Monitor the midpoint voltage of your battery bank (cable included) to keep an eye on battery health.
Connection to any Victron GX Device: The SmartShunt also features a VE.Direct port so can also be connected to any device in the GX range including the Colour Controller and Cerbo GX via a VE.Direct cable.
