Hello all,

Just wondering if anyone's installed a Battery monitor out there? I'm thinking of adding a Victron BMV702 unit, or similar) and have noticed they require the use of a shunt. Hopefully that won't void any warranties?

Anyone who's added one to track amps in / out I'd love to know which model you went with, ease of installation, etc.

Regards,
Simon

Hi Simon
I have installed victron bvm600 on my h385. It is very easy to do, just make a 20cm electrique cable in 32mm2 and put shunt near battery between bat and the 220v rear panel. It works fine and it is easy to manage your bat power

I have the Philippi BSM Monitor, gives me a "level gauge" for the service bank and % of capacity. In addition I have the voltages for starter and bow thruster battery. Installation was easy and done under 2 hours.
I do not want to miss the chance to see how my expensive AGM's are doing.

Great stuff, do you have any photos of the Victron install? Sounds like a good one that I'm going to go for. This 702 version is just a slightly upgraded version of the 600 I think?

How many amps out are you finding then? From the Fridge, etc?

Regards,
Simon

The Victron BMV 702 is very useful, easy to install and can monitor a separate starting battery besides the consumer batteries.

I installed the Blue Seas system monitor - tracks charge state (in/out) of main house bank, voltage of the other 2 banks, water and fuel levels, and will even provide info on an inverter if you have it.... Works fantastic.

Does anyone with the 700 have any photos of what they did?
Did you need to buy any new cables or did it come with everything you needed?

I also use the Blue Sea monitor. It was great! It provides a three way switch to monitor my 3 battery banks and can be used to see the current charge and discharge. It is suprisingly very sensitive. I can tell when one light is swithed on. It also requires a shunt. The shunt needs to be placed in the negative battery link of ALL batteries. Installation is relatively easy. I mounted the displays in my electric panel with short connections to the battery terminals and shunt. I have some pictures somewhere if I find I will post.
