The Victron BMV-702 battery monitor is a battery monitor with an extra input and gray front. The auxiliary input can be used to measure voltage (from a second battery), temperature or the midpoint voltage and associated alarm and relay settings.
A battery monitor provides insight into your power consumption and the status of the battery. An indispensable tool for monitoring the battery bank. In addition to battery voltage, current and amp-hours consumed, the BMV-700 series also displays charge status (%), time remaining and power consumption in watts. This set consists of (see images) a monitor with associated shunt (500A) and a cable set; no further parts are needed.
- System information on battery voltage, current, power, amp hours consumed and charge status
- Remaining time at the current discharge rate
- Programmable visual and audible alarm
- Programmable relay to turn off non-critical loads or to run a generator if needed.
- 500 A shunt with quick disconnect and connection set
- Shunt selection up to 10,000 amps
- VE.Direct communication port
- Can store a large number of historical events that can be used to evaluate battery usage pattern and condition
- Wide input voltage range: 6.5 – 95V
- High current measurement resolution: 10 mA (0.01A)
- Low power consumption: 2.9 Ah per month (4 mA) at 12V and 2.2 Ah per month (3 mA) at 24V
- An additional connection to measure voltage (from a second battery), temperature or midpoint voltage and the associated alarm and relay settings.
The BMV-702 battery monitor measures with very high precision within a supply voltage range of 6.5 - 95 VDC.
The essential function of a battery monitor is to calculate the battery status and the number of Ampere-hours consumed. The BMV-702 battery monitor optionally displays battery voltage, current, amp hours used, remaining battery capacity and time remaining. These last two parameters ensure that you can read the remaining battery capacity, just as accurately as on a petrol pump. An advanced backlight LCD display clearly shows all values.
Battery 'fuel gauge', time remaining indicator and much more
The remaining battery capacity depends on the amp hours consumed, the discharge current, the temperature and the age of the battery. Complex software algorithms are needed to take all these variables into account. In addition to the main display options, such as voltage, current and amp-hours used, the BMV-700 series also displays charge status, time remaining and power consumption in watts. The BMV-702 has an additional input, which can be programmed to measure voltage (or a second battery), temperature or midpoint voltage (see below).
Use the Bluetooth Smart dongle to monitor your batteries with Apple or Android smartphones, tablets, MacBooks and other devices.
Easy to install
All electrical connections are made with the quick-disconnect circuit board on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable. Included: RJ 12 cable (10m) and battery cable with fuse (2m); no further parts are needed. Also included are a separate ring for the appearance of the front of a square or round display, a locking ring for rear mounting and screws for front mounting.
Easy to program (with your smartphone!)
A quick setup menu and a detailed setup menu with scrolling texts help the user navigate through the various settings. You can also opt for the quick and easy solution: download the smartphone app (Bluetooth Smart dongle required)
Additional features of the model BMV-702
Additional input for measuring voltage (from a second battery), temperature or the midpoint voltage and associated alarm and relay settings.
Additional features of the model BMV-700H
voltage range from 60 to 385 VDC. No additional parts needed. Note: Suitable for systems with negative ground only (battery monitor is not isolated from shunt).
