Victron Energy BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor Grey BAM030712000R



In Stock


Victron BMV-712 Smart battery monitor is a precise multi-function battery monitor.

Ideal for anyone needing to check on the performance of their battery bank and can monitor the voltage of a second battery.

  • Always know the state of your battery via the display or via the Bluetooth app
  • State of Charge read-outs
  • Very easy to install
  • Estimates time-to-go
  • Automatically determines nominal voltage
  • Stores historic data

Information displayed on theBMV-712:

  • Voltage
  • Current draw
  • Ah consumed
  • % Charger level
  • Time-To-Go (also in includes a programable alarm)

What you get in the box:

  • BMV-712 Grey
  • 500A/50mV shunt with on-board PCB
  • 10m RJ12 cable
  • 2 x 2m Fused power cables
  • Square bezel
  • Fixings
  • Instructions manual

Easy to install: All electrical connections are to the quick connect PCB on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable.

Includes midpoint voltage monitoring: One bad cell or one bad battery can destroy a large, expensive battery bank. When batteries are connected in series, a timely warning can be generated by measuring the midpoint voltage. Please see the BMV manual, section 5.2, for more information.

Bluetooth: With Bluetooth being implemented in most other Victron Energy products, wireless communication between products will simplify system installation and enhance performance.

Use a smartphone or other Bluetooth enabled device to – customize settings, – monitor all important data on single screen, – view historical data, and to – update the software when new features become available.

Very low current draw from the battery: Current consumption: 0,7Ah per month (1mA) @12V and 0,6Ah per month (0,8mA) @ 24V Especially Li-ion batteries have virtually no capacity left when discharged until low voltage shutdown. After shutdown due to low cell voltage, the capacity reserve of a Li-ion battery is approximately 1Ah per 100Ah battery capacity. The battery will be damaged if the remaining capacity reserve is drawn from the battery. A residual current of 10mA for example may damage a 200Ah battery if the system is left in discharged state during more than 8 days.

Other features:

– Battery voltage, current, power, ampere-hours consumed and state of charge

– Remaining time at the current rate of discharge

– Programmable visual and audible alarm

– Programmable relay, to turn off non critical loads or to run a generator when needed

– 500 Amp quick connect shunt and connection kit

– Shunt selection capability up to 10.000 Amps – VE.Direct communication port

– Stores a wide range of historical events, which can be used to evaluate usage patterns and battery health

– Wide input voltage range: 9,5 – 95V

– High current measurement resolution: 10 mA (0,01A)

– Additional input to measure voltage (of a second battery), temperature or midpoint voltage, and corresponding alarm and relay settings.
