Temperature sensor for BMV-702/712
A Distributor’s viewpoint
“We have been lucky enough to receive our first unit of the new Victron Energy BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor.
The BMV-712 Smart is the same battery monitor as the BMV-702 but with the addition of Bluetooth connectivity built into the unit. No longer will you need the Victron Bluetooth Dongle to access the Victron Connect app – it is already integrated so you can easily view the device from your smart phone or tablet. Victron has started to integrate Bluetooth connectivity into a large number of their current products, including the new Smart Solar MPPT charge controllers.
Once you have download the VictronConnect app you will be able to customise the settings on the BMV-712 Smart as well as completing it’s setup – all of which we found very quick and easy. All data monitoring can be completed on one screen including the state of charge, battery voltage & amps, temperature, and time remaining. All of this data is then collected and stored historically for later use – which is great for seeing how your battery bank performed over time. This will also allow you to connect to the internet for software updates and to update with new features as and when they become available.
The biggest bonus we have found with having Bluetooth built into the unit is that there is now a VE.direct port free which allows you to use the Victron connect app for monitoring and also allows you to connect the unit into a Color Control GX or Venus GX for full system monitoring – you no longer have to choose between one or the other.”
