The Victron Lynx Smart BMS 500 is a dedicated battery management system (BMS) for Victron Smart lithium batteries, which is part of the Lynx distribution system.
The Victron Lynx Smart BMS 500 contains a positive and a negative busbar, a BMS, a contactor and a battery monitor. The Lynx Smart BMS can communicate with the VictronConnect app via Bluetooth and can communicate with a GX device via VE.Can. The Lynx Smart BMS has a status LED and a Bluetooth LED and comes with two VE.Can RJ45 terminators.
Communication VictronConnect app and GX device
The Lynx Smart BMS, and up to 4 connected Lynx Distributors, can be monitored and set up with the VictronConnect App or with a Victron GX communication device. The GX device can be connected to the VRM portal, enabling remote monitoring. For more information about the VRM portal, see the VRM page.
Smart lithium batteries
The Lynx Smart BMS is a dedicated BMS for the Victron Energy range of Lithium Smart batteries. These batteries are lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries and are available in 12.8V or 25.6V and in different capacities. They can be connected in series, parallel and series / parallel so that a battery bank for system voltages of 12V, 24V or 48V can be realized.
The Lynx Distribution System
The Lynx distribution system is a modular busbar system that includes DC connections, distribution, fuse protection, battery monitoring and/or lithium battery management.
The Lynx Distribution System consists of the following components:
- Lynx Power In - A positive and negative power rail with 4 connections for batteries or DC equipment.
- Lynx Distributor - A positive and negative busbar with 4 fused connections for batteries or DC equipment along with fuse monitoring.
- Lynx Shunt VE.Can - A positive busbar with space for a main system fuse and a negative busbar with a shunt for battery monitoring. It has VE.Can communication for monitoring and configuration with a GX device.
- Lynx Smart BMS - For use with Victron Energy Smart Lithium batteries. It contains a positive busbar with a contactor controlled by a battery management system (BMS) and a negative busbar with a shunt for battery monitoring. It has Bluetooth communication for monitoring and configuration via the VictronConnect app and VE.Can communication for monitoring with a GX device and the VRM portal.
