Busbar Integrated Battery Monitoring
The Lynx Shunt VE.Can is a positive and negative busbar, battery monitor and a fuse holder for the main system fuse. The Lynx Shunt VE.Can can communicate via VE.Can with a GX device, like the Cerbo GX. The Lynx Shunt VE.Can ships with two RJ45 VE.Can terminators, that are used when connecting to a GX device. The Lynx Shunt VE.Can is designed to hold a ANL/CNN fuse. The fuse needs to be purchased separately. For more info see section Fusing in the Lynx Shunt VE.Can manual.
The Lynx Distribution System
The Lynx Distribution System is a modular busbar system that incorporates DC connections, distribution, fusing, battery monitoring and/or Lithium battery management. The Lynx Distribution System consist of the following parts:
• Lynx Power In - A positive and negative busbar with 4 connections for batteries or DC equipment.
• Lynx Distributor - A positive and negative busbar with 4 fused connections for batteries or DC equipment together with fuse monitoring.
• Lynx Shunt VE.Can - A positive busbar with a space for a main system fuse and a negative busbar with a shunt for battery monitoring. It has VE.Can communication for monitoring and setup with a GX device.
• Lynx Smart BMS - For use together with Victron Energy Smart Lithium batteries. It contains a positive busbar with a contactor that is driven by a battery management system (BMS) and a negative busbar with a shunt for battery monitoring. It has Bluetooth communication for monitoring and setup via the VictronConnect App and VE.Can communication for monitoring with a GX device and the VRM portal.
