Optimize Your Energy Storage with Lynx Smart 500A BMS M8 for Victron Lithium Batteries

Discover the pinnacle of battery management with the Lynx Smart BMS, designed exclusively for Victron Lithium Battery Smart series. These high-efficiency Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries come in 12.8V and 25.6V across various capacities, perfect for diverse energy needs.

Versatile Configuration for Maximum Power: Configure these batteries in series, parallel, or series/parallel combinations to build a robust battery bank for 12V, 24V, or 48V systems. With a capacity to integrate up to 20 batteries, achieve impressive energy storage of up to 84 kWh in a 12V system and up to 102 kWh in 24V and 48V systems.

Feature-Rich BMS Solution: The Lynx Smart BMS stands out as the most comprehensive and advanced BMS available, seamlessly integrating into the Lynx Distributor system. 

Advanced Safety and Control Mechanisms:

  • Built-in Contactor: Acts as a secondary safety system, doubling as a remote-controllable main system switch.
  • Pre-Charge Circuit: Prevents high inrush currents, simplifying your setup by eliminating the need for external pre-charging.

Monitoring and control

Monitor and control the BMS via Bluetooth using the VictronConnect App or a GX device such as a Cerbo GX and the VRM Portal. A built-in battery monitor that operates in a similar fashion as the other Victron Energy battery monitors, provides data such as state of charge, voltage, current, historical data, status info and more in real time, and with Instant Readout even without the need to connect to the BMS, allowing diagnostic at a glance. 

Intelligent System Integration:

Compatible Victron inverter/chargers and solar chargers are automatically controlled via a connected GX device and DVCC. The ATC/ATD contacts can be used to control other chargers and loads that have a remote on/off port. 

Programmable relay

The relay can be used either as an alarm relay (combined with the pre-alarm) or to control an alternator via its external regulator (ignition cable). In Alternator ATC mode, the relay will only activate when the contactor is closed. Alternator ATC contact of the alternator opens first and then with a delay of 2 seconds the contactor. These 2 seconds ensure that the alternator is switched off before the battery is disconnected from the system.

AUX Terminal

The advantage of the onboard auxiliary power supply (1.1 A @ system voltage) is to provide power to specific loads (i.e. a GX device) after the BMS has shut down the loads in the event of a low cell voltage event. If no charge voltage is detected within 5 minutes, the BMS including the AUX connection switches off. 

VE.Can and NMEA 2000 data communication 

VE.Can allows for easy connection (standard RJ45 network cable) and communication with a GX device. Since the CANbus protocol is based on NMEA 2000 (and J1939), it is easy to integrate into a marine network and feed your marine MFD with data (requires a VE.Can to NMEA 2000 micro-C male cable). 

Lynx Distributor fuse monitoring

Read out fuse status and receive an alarm in case a fuse is blown. The Lynx Smart BMS monitors up to 4 connected Lynx Distributors and their fuses via VictronConnect or a GX device 

1) To reduce required balancing time, we recommend to use a little different batteries in series as possible for the application. 24 V systems are best built using 24 V batteries. And 48 V systems are best built using two 24 V batteries in series. While the alternative, four 12 V batteries in series, will work, it will require more periodic balancing time.

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.
