Victron Lynx DC Distribution System
The Lynx Distribution System is a modular busbar system that incorporates DC connections, distribution, fusing, battery monitoring and/or Lithium battery management.
The Lynx Distribution System consists of the following parts:
- Lynx Power In - A positive and negative busbar with 4 connections for batteries or DC equipment.
- Lynx Distributor - A positive and negative busbar with 4 fused connections for batteries or DC equipment together with fuse monitoring.
- Lynx Shunt VE.Can - A positive busbar with a space for a main system fuse and a negative busbar with a shunt for battery monitoring. It has VE.Can communication for monitoring and setup with a GX device.
- Lynx Smart BMS - For use together with Victron Energy Smart Lithium batteries. It contains a positive busbar with a contactor that is driven by a battery management system (BMS) and a negative busbar with a shunt for battery monitoring. It has Bluetooth communication for monitoring and setup via the VictronConnect App and VE.Can communication for monitoring with a GX device and the VRM portal.
A Lynx distribution system usually consists of a single Lynx Shunt VE.Can module or a single Lynx Smart BMS module.
The choice between a Lynx Shunt VE.Can or a Lynx Smart BMS depends on what type of batteries are used in the system. The Lynx Smart BMS can only be used with the Victron Energy Lithium Smart Batteries, while the Lynx Shunt VE.Can is suitable for all other batteries.
Then, single, multiple or a combination of Lynx Distributor modules and/or Lynx Power In modules are added.
Together they form a continuous negative and positive busbar with DC connections and, depending on the configuration, integrated fuses, a battery monitor and/or lithium battery management.
It is also possible to just use Lynx Power In modules and/or Lynx Distributor modules without a Lynx Smart BMS module or a Lynx Shunt VE.Can modules. This for situations where battery monitoring or battery management is not needed.
