Victron Global Remote 2
Obtaining system information wherever and whenever
The Global Remote is a modem which sends alarms, warnings and system status reports to cellular phones via text messages (SMS). It can also log data from Victron Battery Monitors, Multi’s, Quattro’s and Inverters to a website through a GPRS connection. The usage of this website is free of charge.
The idea is simple: you can use it to get SMS alarms from a Multi, a Battery System, or both. When monitoring the usage of batteries, it can be extremely helpful to receive under and overvoltage alarms; whenever they occur. For this purpose, the Global Remote is perfect. A prepaid SIM-card (for example) in combination with the Global Remote is adequate for remotely monitoring your system.
Advanced usage: Monitoring historic data
Taking it one step further, an internet browser and -connection is all you need to view all of the data online. You can simply create an account on the website and add your modem(s). Subsequently you can configure the GPRS connection, which will enable you to monitor the historic data of several basic properties such as system voltages, power levels and status information. All of this data is graphed. These graphs are available in daily, weekly and monthly timeframes.
Global Remote Antenna
The Global Remote Antenna is an optional accessory to improve the reception of the Victron Global Remote. The Global Remote Antenna replaces the standard antenna that is included with the Global Remote.
The antenna is an outdoor 4dBi Gain antenna for stationary usage. A standard 5m low loss coax cable and wall-mount is included.
Two AC inputs with integrated transfer switch. The Quattro can be connected to two independent AC sources, for example shore-side power and a generator, or two generators. The Quattro will automatically connect to the active source.
All Quattro- and several Multi inverter/chargers now have two AC outputs. In addition to the standard no-break output, an auxiliary output is available which disconnects the connected load during battery operation. It is, for example, the perfect solution for preventing an electric water heater from discharging your battery.
