3.2. Main fuse

The Lynx Shunt houses the main system fuse.

The fuse is being monitored by the Lynx Shunt VE.Can and, if the fuse blows, the power LED turns red and an alarm message is sent to the GX device.

The relay can be driven by the blown fuse parameter.

3.3. Battery Monitor (shunt)

The Lynx Shunt VE.Can battery monitor operates in a similar fashion as the other Victron Energy battery monitors. It contains a shunt and battery monitor electronics.

Readout of the battery monitor data is via a GX device or the VRM portal.

3.4. Alarm relay

The Lynx Shunt VE.Can has an alarm relay. This relay can be programmed via the GX device to open or close using the following parameters:

  • Battery State of charge

  • Battery voltage

  • Battery temperature

  • Fuse blown

The alarm relay can, for example, be used to start or stop a generator based on battery state of charge or battery voltage. The alarm messages that are send to the GX device or to the VRM portal are programable in a similar fashion.

3.5. Temperature sensor

The temperature sensor is an optional extra to measure the battery temperature. If used, the Lynx Shunt VE.Can will measure the temperature of the battery and can be used to drive the Lynx Shunt VE.Can alarm relay.

The temperature data or temperature alarms will also be sent to the GX device and from there to the VRM portal. On the VRM portal the temperature data is logged and can be accessed.
