The Smart Battery Sense is a wireless voltage- and temperature- sensor for Victron MPPT Solar Chargers.
The Solar Charger uses the battery voltage & temperature information to optimize its charge parameters. This will improve charging-efficiency and prolong battery life.
The connection between the Smart Battery Sense and the Solar Charger(s) wireless: VE.Smart Network, a wireless technology that is based on Bluetooth Smart.
Its very simple to install & configure, the Smart Battery Sense comes with an inline fuse and pre-crimped eyelets. And adhesive tape on the back, to mount it on the battery.
Connect the unit's two eyelets to your battery terminals and attach it directly onto the battery-body using its self-adhesive strip.
For battery banks consisting of multiple individual batteries, connect the Smart Battery Sense unit on any one of the batteries.
In case the supplied bat+ and bat- cables are not long enough, their length can be increased. Make sure to use the same, or thicker, gauge cable.
