Defining the amount of energy available in a battery is a complex task since battery age, discharge current and temperature all influence the actual battery capacity. High performance measuring circuits, along with complex software algorithms, are used to exactly determine the remaining battery capacity.
A battery monitor can display voltage, charge and discharge current, consumed amphours, remaining battery capacity, temperature and the time remaining of your battery bank and display the voltage of an auxilliary battery.
A very important function is to provide an alarm if any particular parameter is not normal - for example battery temperature.
As the VE.Direct port is now free on the BMV-712 Smart you can connect it to other devices such as the Color Control GX or the Venus GX and even a Raspberry Pi – giving solutions for every budget and installation type.
In the BMV-700 Series, the standard colour is grey but black is also an option with the 702. There’s also an additional high voltage version in the series, the BMV-700HS.
