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 and associated Peukert losses).
Ampere hours consumed are calculated by integrating the current flowing in or out of the battery.
Battery fuel gauge, time-to-go indicator, and much more
The remaining battery capacity depends on :
- the ampere-hours consumed
- discharge current
- aging of the battery
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.
