BMV 700 Battery monitoring
BMV 700 Battery monitoring is an high precision battery monitor.
The main function of a battery monitor is to calculate :
- the ampere hours consumed
- the battery state of charge
Besides, integration of the current flow over time gives the net amount of Ah added or removed.
For example: a discharge current of 10A during 2 hours will take
10 x 2 = 20Ah from the battery
The capacity of a battery is rated in ampere-hours (Ah). For example, a
lead acid battery that can deliver a current of 5A during 20 hours is rated at
C20 = 100Ah (5 x 20 = 100).
When the same 100Ah battery is discharged completely in two hours,
it may only give C2 = 56Ah (because of the higher rate of discharge).
Ampere hours consumed are calculated by integrating the current flowing in or out of the battery.
The Battery fuel gauge, time-to-go indicator, and much more
The remaining battery capacity depends on :
- the ampere-hours consumed
- discharge current
- the age of the batteryh
Easy to install
All electrical connections are to the quick connect PCB on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the
monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable.
Included: RJ 12 cable (10 m) and battery cable with fuse (2 m).
Also included are :
- a separate front bezel for a square or round display appearance,
- a securing ring for the rear mounting
- and screws for the front mounting.
