I just installed the BMW700 in my H325. I used to have the older BMW600 in my previous boat and was really happy with it.

Johan, what you are asking for is provided with the BMW700. It shows both the calculated remaining percentage of the monitored battery bank (when installing the BMW for the first time you are asked to input your total number of Ah's in your bank), but it also shows the net of input/output of Ah:s since last full charge.

So if you have used say 40Ah but at the same time your solar panels have put in 10Ah, the BMW700 will show the net drainage of 30%

But it is all done by calculation, but you can set some parameters like battery health etc. The primary reason I installed it was that the built in voltmeter in the Calibra panel showed the wrong voltage, normally some 0.2-0.7V lower that the actual voltage measuring direct on the battery. I thought that it may also do some calculations but somehow does not take into account that I have installed a solar panel so the additional Ah was taken out of the equation.

My mistake in the last post. My example showing net drainage of 30% shall be 30Ahs....Smile

Mine is a Batt-Meter and does the same as the BMW 700.

Up until now I have tried to make sure not to exceed 100 Ah as my leisure bank is 200 Ah. After reading the test blog I have come to understand that when the batteries age and their capacity decreases I should try to use less before charging, otherwise I exceed the 50% and will risk ruining the batteries. I find that part of the blog very useful.

iemand,
I am curios of the accuracy of the Philippi panel compared to measing directly on the battery. Do you get the same voltage?

Battery monitors allways use a wire directly connected to the accu to measure the voltage of the battery.
Those which also measure the in- and outgoing current have a (current)shunt connected in the accu cable close to the battery. A second wire set is connected to this shunt, to measure the voltage drop over this shunt, which can be used to calculate the current through the shunt.

I have never compared the voltage values. I trust Phillippi! This unit also has a Shunt for the capacity and two inputs for the tanks. I don't know the model but it is doing exactly what it should do and with the cut out of the original panel it looks to me like factory fitted which is not the case!

Does this model also has a connection for tank sensors?

built mine myself :) touch screen small lcd with microcontroller, no shunt, instead hall effect transducer. No cabling to adapt. Works like a charm since 1 year :)
First 4000 miles, no substantial problems

On my 355#004 Philippi display is consistent with the measuremant directly from the battery. I also have voltage displayed on my plotter thru Simnet and that is 0.2-0.3 lower always.
