Victron Grey BMV-700 Battery Monitor Overview

BMV-700: An Advanced Battery ‘Fuel Gauge’, Time-to-Go Indicator, and Much More

The BMV-700's remaining battery capacity depends on several factors including the ampere-hours consumed, discharge current, temperature, and the age of the battery. It uses complex software algorithms to take all these variables into account. Apart from basic display options such as voltage, current, and ampere-hours consumed, the BMV-700 series also displays state of charge, time to go, and power consumption in Watts.

Easy to Install BMV-700 Battery Monitor

All electrical connections of the BMV-700 are made to the quick connect PCB on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable. The package includes an RJ 12 cable (10 m) and a battery cable with fuse (2 m). There are no other components needed for installation. Also included are a separate front bezel for a square or round display appearance, a securing ring for the rear mounting, and screws for the front mounting.

BMV-700 Battery Monitor: Standard Features

  • Displays battery voltage, current, power, ampere-hours consumed, and state of charge
  • Calculates remaining time at the current rate of discharge
  • Offers programmable visual and audible alarm
  • Includes programmable relay to turn off non-critical loads or to run a generator when needed
  • Comes with 500 Amp quick connect shunt and connection kit - Shunt selection capability up to 10,000 Amps
  • Features VE.Direct communication port
  • Stores a wide range of historical events for evaluating usage patterns and battery health
  • Supports a wide input voltage range: 6.5 – 95V
  • Provides high current measurement resolution: 10 mA (0.01A)
  • Offers low current consumption: 2.9Ah per month (4mA) @12V and 2.2Ah per month (3mA) @ 24V

Ideal for Caravans, RVs

The BMV-700 Battery Monitor is not just a piece of equipment; it's an essential companion for your RV and off-grid living. With its advanced features and easy-to-install design, it's perfect for anyone who values efficiency, reliability, and autonomy.

Perfect for RVs: The BMV-700 is an ideal choice for RV owners. It allows you to closely monitor your battery status, ensuring you never run out of power while on the road or parked at a camping site. The precise readings allow for efficient power management, reducing the risk of battery depletion and extending the lifespan of your battery. The BMV-700's compact design makes it an unobtrusive addition to your RV's electrical system.

Excellent for Off-grid Living: For those living off-grid, the BMV-700 is an invaluable tool. Whether you're running a remote cabin, a solar-powered workshop, or a boat, the BMV-700 helps you keep a close eye on your power consumption and battery health. Its wide input voltage range and low current consumption make it a versatile monitor for various off-grid setups.

Frequently Asked Questions about the BMV-700 Battery Monitor

What is the difference between the SmartShunt, BMV-712, and BMV-700?
All three devices are designed to monitor your battery, but they each have distinct features. The BMV-700 is a high precision battery monitor that tracks the status of your battery and displays information like voltage, current, and power. The BMV-712 has the added feature of built-in Bluetooth, which allows you to access your battery information remotely through the VictronConnect app. The SmartShunt is essentially a BMV but without a display. It is a good alternative if you have a system with Bluetooth and prefer to read the system’s data on your phone or tablet, via the VictronConnect app.
Is the BMV-700 compatible with all types of batteries?
Yes, the BMV-700 is designed to work with various types of batteries including AGM, Li-ion, Gel, and Flooded. However, for accurate readings, it's important to correctly set the battery capacity and other parameters in the BMV-700 settings.
Do I need any additional equipment to install and use the BMV-700?
The BMV-700 comes with all the necessary equipment for installation, including an RJ 12 cable and a battery cable with a fuse. It connects to a quick connect PCB on the current shunt. Assuming you have one battery negative lead, normally you can cut it, crimp 2x M10 lugs on to it, and connect them to the BMV. However, for remote monitoring, you may want to consider the BMV-712 which comes with built-in Bluetooth.

Off-Grid and Backup

The presence of a functional electricity grid is not always as obvious as it would seem to be. An insufficient infrastructure is often the cause for an unreliable grid. Things become even more difficult when there is no grid at all. And yet you are in need of a reliable electricity supply. A local and properly functioning system is the only answer at this point. Victron Energy offers you such an answer. We are proud to offer you our modern translation for freedom and independence. Energy, Anytime, Anywhere

Energy Storage

As more solar and wind power comes on line, it becomes increasingly difficult and expensive, to ensure stability of the grid. Intermediate energy storage is therefore rapidly becoming an essential tool to keep power fluctuations on the grid within manageable limits. Moreover, as feed-in tariffs are decreasing, the business case for a home energy storage system that increases self-consumption becomes more solid every day. Intermediate energy storage increases self-consumption of harvested solar and/or wind power. The natural next step is 100% self-consumption and independence from the grid.
