Victron BMV600S - suitable for monitoring 1 battery bank
The essential function of a battery monitor is to calculate ampere-hours consumed and the state of charge of a battery. Ampere-hours consumed and the state of charge of a battery. Ampere-hours consumed is calculated by integrating the current flowing in or out of the battery. In case of a constant current this integration is equivalent to current multiplied by time. A discharge current of 10A during 2 hours, for example, amounts to 20Ah consumed. All our battery monitors are based on a powerful microprocessror, programmed with the algorithms needed for precision monitoring. Standard information and alarms: Battery voltage (V) Battery charge/discharge current (A) Ampere-hours consumed (Ah) State of Charge (%) Time to go at the current rate of discharge Visual and audible alarm: over and under voltage , and/or battery discharged. BMV 600: low cost ultra high resolution monitor HIghest resolution Lowest current consumption Easiest to wire: The BMV 600 comes with shunt, 10 metre RJ12 UTP cable and 2 metre cable with fuse. No other components Easiest to install: seperate front bezel for square or round apperance; ring for rear mounting and screws for front mounting.
