Victon’s new “intelligent” series of precision battery monitors are now able to provide boat owners and skippers with the sort of handy, practical information they need to manage their battery banks and ensure reliable, continuous supply.
In addition to precisely monitoring a vessel’s battery voltage, Victron’s new BMV700 series, the latest update to the company’s very popular BMV600 series, also displays the batteries’ State of Charge (SOC), how many Ampere-hours have been consumed and the amount of current that has flowed both in and out of the batteries.
The new BMV702 monitor also delivers a quality of information previously found only on far more expensive, industrial-type units. This includes Time to Go (at the current rate of discharge) and Mid-Point Voltage Monitoring (especially useful for larger battery banks).
The BMV700 series monitors also store a wide range of historical events, enabling these to be used later to evaluate usage patterns and battery health, and contains an inbuilt programmable relay that can be used to turn on or off critical loads or to run a generator when needed.
Able to be connected to a wide range of battery voltages from 9.5v DC to 95v DC, the easy-to-install and easy-to-program BMV700 series monitors come complete with a round instrument gauge, a square bezel adapter and a 500A/50mV shunt and are available in either grey or black so they can be matched to existing electrical panels.
The Victron BVM700 series of intelligent battery monitors are now available through Lusty & Blundell’s nationwide network of leading marine dealers.
