VICTRON BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor in Grey or Black
Victron's latest high precision battery monitor, the BMV-712, is designed to monitor both voltage and current of a single battery bank with remarkable accuracy. This advanced device efficiently calculates essential metrics like power, state-of-charge, and time-to-go. Additionally, it offers the convenience of an extra voltage input, enabling measurements of auxiliary or starter battery voltage, midpoint voltage, or temperature (when coupled with the optional temperature sensor).
With its built-in Bluetooth module, data transfer to smartphones or computers becomes seamless, providing users with real-time insights into battery performance. Moreover, the BMV-712 is equipped with external alarms that can be triggered through the relay contact for added security and monitoring capabilities.
The installation process is straightforward, involving connecting the provided shunt in the negative battery cable, mounting the monitor in a 52mm diameter hole, and connecting the necessary wires. For those who prefer surface mounting, an optional wall enclosure is available for a more customized setup.
