Victron BMV-712

  • Bluetooth inside
    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.


    Download the Victron Bluetooth app
    Use a smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device to
    - customize settings
    - monitor all important data on single screen
    - view historical data
    - update the software when new features become available


    Easy to install
    All electrical connections are to the quick-connect PCB on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable. Included: RJ 12 cable (10 m) and battery cable with fuse (2 m); no other components needed. Also included are a separate front bezel for a square or round display appearance, a securing ring for rear mounting and screws for front mounting.


    Optional temperature sensor
    There is an optional temperature sensor which will be wired from the battery to the shunt or you can use the Battery Sense and it will transmit the dat via bluetooth to the BMV-712 and your MPPT SmartSolar controller.


    Midpoint voltage monitoring
    One bad cell or one bad battery can destroy a large, expensive battery bank. When batteries are connected in series, a timely warning can be generated by measuring the midpoint voltage. Please see the BMV manual, section 5.2, for more information.


    Very low current draw from the battery
    Current consumption: 0.7Ah per month (1mA) @12V and 0.6Ah per month (0.8mA) @ 24V
    Li-ion batteries have virtually no capacity left when discharged until low voltage shutdown. After shutdown due to low cell voltage, the capacity reserve of a Li-ion battery is approximately 1Ah per 100Ah battery capacity. The battery will be damaged if the remaining capacity reserve is drawn from the battery. A residual current of 10mA for example may damage a 200Ah battery if the system is left in discharged state for more than 8 days.


    Bi-stable alarm relay
    Prevents increased current draw in case of an alarm
