Victron Energy Smart Battery Sense 10m Version SBS050150200
- Additional information
Victron Energy Smart Battery Sense 10m Version SBS050150200 is a wireless battery voltage and temperature sensor for Victron MPPT Solar Chargers. With voltage and temperature sense in place, batteries will be better charged; improving charging-efficiency and prolonging battery life.
Improves battery charging
By measuring voltage at the battery bank terminals, errors arising from voltage-loss due to cable resistance are avoided – guaranteeing the correct charge-voltage. For lead batteries, battery temperature data is used to adjust the charge-voltages: cold batteries require an increased charge-voltage, whereas hot batteries require a decreased charge-voltage. For lithium batteries temperature data is used to disable charging when they are too cold: charging lithium batteries near or below freezing causes permanent damage to the cells.
Look no wires
The connection between Smart Battery Sense 10 meter version SBS050150200 and one or more Solar Charger(s) is wireless: It uses VE.Smart Network – a wireless technology based on Bluetooth Smart. Information transmitted can be used simultaneously by one, two or more Solar Chargers connected to the same 12V, 24V and 48V battery bank. The Smart Network is set up using the VictronConnect app.
Tidy, simple – smart
Installation is simple, quick and tidy. Just connect the unit’s two eyelets to your battery terminals and attach the Smart Battery Sense 10 meter version SBS050150200 unit directly onto the battery-body using its self-adhesive strip.
When can I use Smart Battery Sense …and when should I avoid using it?
- Check the VE.Smart Networking compatible products list for compatible Solar Chargers.
- Smart Battery Sense is not needed, or allowed, in systems which are already controlled by a Color Control GX or Venus GX. The CCGX/Venus GX already has voltage sensing (soon they will have temperature sensing too). Adding Smart Battery Sense to the installation will confuse the voltage-sensing data.
- Smart Battery Sense is not needed for installations which already have a BMV-712 (battery monitor) with a temperature sensor accessory.
- For installations using a BMV-702 together with its optional temperature sensor accessory – for wireless connectivity consider adding a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle instead of a Smart Battery Sense.
