-====== Smart Battery Sense Manual ====== +Moved to: https://www.victronenergy.com/media/pg/17801-Smart_Battery_Sense_Manual/index.html?lang=en
- +
-===== 1. Introduction ===== +
- +
-//Smart Battery Sense// is a wireless battery voltage-and-temperature sensor for Victron MPPT Solar Chargers. +
- +
-The Solar Charger uses these measurements to optimize its charge parameters. The accuracy of the data it transmits will improve battery charging efficiency, and prolong battery life. +
- +
-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. +
- +
-Simple to install & configure, //Smart Battery Sense// comes with an inline fuse and pre-crimped eyelets. Revealing the self-adhesive tape on the back allows you to mount it directly on the battery. +

- +
-=== When can I use Smart Battery Sense ...and when should I avoid using it? === +
- +
-  * Check the [[victronconnect:ve-smart-networking#vesmart_networking_compatible_products|VE.Smart Networking compatible products list]] 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, see [[victronconnect:ve-smart-networking#faq|FAQ Q6]] for more info. +
-  * //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 [[https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/ve-direct-bluetooth-smart-dongle|VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle]] instead of a //Smart Battery Sense//. +
-===== 2. Installation ===== +
- +
-Connect the two eyelets to your battery terminals and attach the unit directly onto the battery-body using its self-adhesive strip. +
- +
-For //banks// of batteries //Smart Battery Sense// may be connected to any one of the individual batteries. +
- +
-If the bat+ and bat- cables are not long enough they may be extended - only make sure you use the same, or a thicker, gauge of cable. +
-===== 4. Configuration ===== +
- +
-This video will show you how to install //Smart Battery Sense// and includes step-by-step instructions for connecting it your mobile phone via VictronConnect [[victronconnect:ve-smart-networking|]] manual. +

- +
-===== 5. LED Status codes ===== +
- +
-//Smart Battery Sense// has two LEDs: a Bluetooth status LED (blue), and an Error LED (red).  +
- +
-On power-up, the Bluetooth LED will be slow-blinking - indicating that the device is ready to accept a Bluetooth connection. +
- +
-If both LEDs remain illuminated, something is wrong with the //Smart Battery Sense// unit (Hardware error). +
- +
-When the LEDs are alternating quickly for more than 30 seconds, the //Smart Battery Sense// is in firmware update mode and will need to complete the update before it can be used. Firmware updates are performed (where necessary) after connecting to VictronConnect. +
