    Photonic Universe is an official distributor of products from Victron Energy - the?ÿglobally renowned manufacturer of high quality?ÿhybrid power electronics. Victron Energy solar charge controllers have a longstanding reputation for their outstanding reliability, innovative design and superior build quality. This Victron 500A BMV series smart battery monitor uses a high-precision battery shunt designed to expertly measure?ÿvital charging and performance?ÿdata for?ÿyour batteries. This smart model features additional advanced functions such as Bluetooth communication ability, a secondary?ÿinput for?ÿoptional monitoring of an auxiliary battery bank, and an extremely low current draw from the battery bank (0.7Ah per month for a 12V system).?ÿStatistics such as battery voltage, charge / discharge current as energy flows in to and out of the battery, Amp Hours consumed, state of charge and time-to-go?ÿare displayed on the LCD monitor for convenient viewing. The inbuilt Bluetooth enables remote system monitoring (with real-time data displayed) and programming of settings via any Bluetooth-enabled mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. Battery data The smart battery shunt?ÿmeasures?ÿthe vital parameters relating to the battery condition and the energy it receives?ÿ/ provides,?ÿand transmits this information?ÿto?ÿthe LCD?ÿmonitor, where it can be viewed by the user (and where some settings can be amended if necessary). This information includes: Battery voltage: Displayed for the main battery / battery bank, and also for an optional auxiliary battery which can be connected via the secondary input. Battery midpoint voltage monitoring:?ÿ For battery banks constructed of several individual batteries, the smart monitor is able to maintain balance by taking the voltage measurements from the midpoint within the bank, and if the voltage deviates from this point of balance, an alarm will be generated. For such battery banks, the voltage value is also displayed for the battery bank as a whole, and additionally, for the 'top section' and 'bottom section' (i.e. 1st half and 2nd half) of the battery bank. Battery state of charge: Indicated as a percentage value from 0-100%. Battery charging / discharging current and power:?ÿ The current?ÿ(A) and power (W)?ÿflowing out of the battery (load consumption)?ÿare displayed as negative values,?ÿwhile the current and power?ÿflowing into the battery?ÿare?ÿdisplayed as positive values. Battery temperature: The smart monitor can be connected to an optional Victron battery temperature sensor (sold separately. This temperature measurement can be used to adjust available battery capacity as the temperature varies. An alarm will be activated when battery?ÿtemperature falls outside of the safe range. Amp hours consumed: For example, if 12A is drawn from a fully charged battery during a period of 3 hours, the monitor will show -36.0Ah consumed by the battery. Time-to-go:?ÿ The?ÿmonitor?ÿis able to?ÿestimate the?ÿapproximate length of time that the battery will continue to support the current load, before?ÿthe battery?ÿrequires re-charging.?ÿ An in-depth?ÿ data ?ÿ log also records historical data?ÿto enable the user to evaluate usage patterns and determine overall battery health. This includes values such as?ÿthe highest/ lowest recorded voltages (for the main battery and auxiliary battery), deepest recorded discharge,?ÿtime since last?ÿfull discharge, cumulative Amp hours drawn, time since last full charge, total energy charged/discharged and many more. Customisation This battery monitor is supplied with a 500A 50mV shunt, although if required, this can be replaced with a different sized shunt. The monitor is compatible with shunts up to?ÿ9999A and/or 75mV. The user can set high/low thresholds for battery voltage (either battery), battery state of charge (main battery) or the battery temperature (additional sensor required). If any of the above parametera fall outside of this specified range, the battery shunt?ÿwill transmit a signal to?ÿa relay which activates an audible alarm. When the alarm is triggered, the LCD monitor will?ÿsound, the backlight will flash and an alarm symbol will appear on the display.This smart battery monitor has also been designed to minimise power consumption and therefore features a bistable alarm relay , meaning that the current draw remains low regardless of the position of the relay. Further?ÿcustomisable features include?ÿthe option to specify which parameters are displayed on the monitor, adjustment?ÿof the?ÿscrolling speed of the values on screen, the option to 'lock' settings in place, and a fully adjustable backlight on the LCD display. Advanced communication This smart battery monitor features inbuilt Bluetooth, enabling the user to wirelessly connect their mobile device to the monitor. Then, using the VictronConnect App ?ÿon a smartphone or tablet, you will unlock?ÿnumerous possibilities for?ÿadvanced programming and remote monitoring of your battery system. A wide range of?ÿadditional features are made available, including real-time data transmission, as well as the option to amend battery storage information, program alarms and relays, amend charging parameters, customise the appearance and quantity of data displayed on the monitor?ÿand set up or join an existing VE.Smart network. Alternatively, the VE Direct USB cable can be used to establish a connection to a non-Bluetooth-enabled PC/laptop. The VictronConnect app is compatible with?ÿmost mobile devices and computers, including Android and iOS smartphones, tablets, iPads, MacBooks, Windows PCs/laptops. Compatibility This battery monitor is suitable for use with any?ÿ12V, 24V or 48V?ÿLead Acid / Gel / AGM / Lithium battery or battery bank. The maximum admissible nominal?ÿcurrent?ÿthrough this device?ÿusing the supplied shunt is 500A. Additional items The following items are supplied with this product: a 10m cable to connect the LCD monitor to the battery shunt, 2 x 1m positive supply cables with a fuse?ÿ to connect the battery shunt to?ÿup to?ÿtwo battery banks, a square frame for the LCD monitor and 4 x mounting screws . Click on the Details and specifications tab for more information about this product.

This unit comes with a detailed user manual which explains connection and operations. A basic installation guide is also?ÿavailable to download in the 'Documents' tab. Please note: The shunt should be connected on the negative battery wire, close to the battery. The LCD display is designed to be flush-mounted in order to achieve a level surface, and therefore requires a recess to be cut in the mounting surface / wall. A square frame is supplied with the LCD monitor to offer an alternative to the circular design (flush mounting still required). The following videos provide a brief?ÿintroduction to?ÿthe smart battery monitor and tips on?ÿhow to optimise the sync parameters: If you need help with installation or have any technical questions we can provide FREE?ÿsupport - please contact us by email or phone?ÿ The following documents are available to download: User manual for Victron 500A 12V/ 24V/ 48V Smart Battery Monitor (BMV-712) Datasheet for Victron 500A 12V/ 24V/ 48V Smart Battery Monitor (BMV-712) Installation guide for Victron 500A 12V/ 24V/ 48V Smart Battery Monitor (BMV-712)
