Victron Energy Smart Battery Sense is a battery voltage and temperature sensor for Victron Energy SmartSolar MPPT charge controllers. With voltage and temperature sense in place, batteries will be better charged; improving charging-efficiency and prolonging battery life.
Improves Battery Charging.
By measuring voltage at the battery bank terminals, errors arising from voltage-loss due to cable resistance are avoided - guaranteeing the correct charge-voltage.
Both for lead and lithium batteries.
For lead batteries; battery temperature data is used to adjust the charge-voltages: cold batteries require an increased charge-voltage, whereas hot batteries require a decreased charge-voltage.
For lithium batteries; battery temperature data is used to disable charging when they are too cold: charging lithium batteries near or below freezing causes permanent damage to the cells.
Look no wires.
The connection between Smart Battery Sense and one or more SmartSolar MPPT charge controller(s) is wireless: It uses the VE.Smart Network - a wireless technology based on Bluetooth Smart.
Information transmitted can be used simultaneously by one, two, or more SmartSolar controllers connected to the same 12V, 24V or 48V battery bank. The Smart Network is set up using the free VictronConnect app.
Tidy. Simple. Smart.
Installation is simple, quick and tidy. Just connect the unit's two eyelets to your battery terminals and attach the Smart Battery Sense unit directly onto the battery-body using the unit's self-adhesive strip.
