Victron Battery Monitor Kits

  Think of a battery monitor as a fuel gauge for your battery bank. If you want to know the charge level of your battery bank and how much current is entering or leaving your batteries, you need a battery monitor.  When energy conservation is critical, a battery monitor is very helpful in educating you on the electrical consumption of your various devices as well as the charging potential of your solar array.  On Victron systems we recommend a Lynx Shunt on lithium systems using a Color Control Monitor.  For everything else, we recommend the BMV-712 with Bluetooth.

Temperature Sensors

  Because battery chemistry changes with temperature, many charge controllers and inverters use temperature sensors to maintain an effective charging profile.
