Building on the success of the acclaimed BMV-600 series, Victron Energy b.v. announced the launch of their next generation battery monitors – with a range of improvements – plus enhanced systems integration and functionality. The new BMV-700 series consists of the 700, 702 and 700H models. The BMV-702 now has an option to monitor the mid-point voltage of a battery bank. This cost saving feature will give a warning if the bank is becoming out of balance. Battery temperature monitoring is another new feature. Like earlier models you may also choose to monitor an auxiliary or starter battery.
All models retain the same familiar dimensions and style of the BMV-600 series. Upgrading from a 600 series BMV couldn't be easier, as the 600 series shunt is also compatible with the new range. Further improvements with the 700 breed include: An improved LCD read-out, simpler operation and setup, retention of history data, SOC indicator bar, computed kWh charged and discharged, VE.Direct communications port, relay invert function and last but not least – the 700 pricing has been held at that of the 600s.
Add to that, intelligent systems integration whether it be for a smart house, boat, automotive, off grid, solar application et al., local and remote monitoring can be further enhanced using the Color Control GX via the online VRM portal. In choosing Victron today, The Internet of Things (IoT) just got that little bit smarter.
