Improved 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.

Wireless Blutooth Technology

The connection between Smart Battery Sense 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.

Easy Installation

Installation is simple, quick and tidy. Just connect the unit's two eyelets to your battery terminals and attach the Smart Battery Sense 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 below 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. 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

  1. To measure battery temperature, the BMV series temperature sensor is required.

  2. Early production batches of some models are not VE.Smart capable. Check the table in chapter 5.

  3. Synchronised charging is available on the SmartSolar on version v1.47 or higher except for the models listed on the table below.

  4. Synchronised charging on VE.Smart is only available on SmartSolar Chargers. It is not possible to enable synchronised charging when using a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle.

  5. See Smart Battery Sense manual for more information, and specific limitations.

  6. Only Blue Smart IP22 Chargers starting production date week 24 of 2020 (serial number HQ2024nnnnn and newer) are supported. The hardware revision printed on the product label should be “hw rev 02” or higher.
