The BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor by Victron. With Bluetooth built-in, the BMV Smart is ready for the Internet of Things (IoT) era. With Bluetooth being implemented in most other Victron Energy products, wireless communication between products will simplify system installation and enhance performance.
This BMV (Battery Monitor Victron) is one of Victron’s group of high precision battery monitors. Their essential function is to calculate ampere hours consumed and the state of charge of a battery. Think of these monitors as your battery ‘fuel gauge’, with a time-to-go indicator and much more.
What’s Included With The BMV-712
The BMV-712 comes with a square bezel overlay (if you wish a square gauge look as opposed to round), a securing ring for rear mounting and screws for front mounting. It can be mounted in a panel of your choice with a 52mm (2.0 inch) aperture or in one of Victron’s optional bespoke wall enclosures.
A 500A/50mV shunt, fitted with a quick connect PCB is part of every product package. Alternatives shunts are available if required: 1000A-50mV, 2000A-50mV, 6000A-50mV.
It also comes with 10m of 6 core UTP cable with RJ12 connectors and a power supply cable complete with fuse.
This product features a second input which can be programmed to measure the voltage (of a second battery), or battery temperature, or midpoint voltage.
The BMV range are all compatible with VE.Smart Networking.
