Lynx Smart BMS

3. Communication and interfacing

In this section:

The Lynx Smart BMS communicates with other devices and services via a variety of interfaces. The following list provides an overview of the most important interfaces:

  • Bluetooth: to change settings and monitor the Lynx Smart BMS via our VictronConnect App.

    Note that Bluetooth can be disabled via VictronConnect or a GX device, but can only be re-enabled from a GX device.

  • VE.Can: to connect a GX device to the Lynx Smart BMS. The GX device will show all measured parameters, operational state, battery SoC and alarms and make them available to be controlled via our remote monitoring VRM portal.

  • Lynx Distributor fuse monitoring: via our VictronConnect app and a connected GX device. Communication with the Lynx Distributors is via it's RJ10 connectors. The Lynx Smart BMS can be used to read out the Lynx Distributors, generate alarms in case a fuse is blown or communication is lost. Fuse status communication requires Lynx Distributor with serial number HQ1909 or later.

  • NMEA 2000 via VE.Can: Communication to an NMEA 2000 network can be established via VE.Can using a VE.Can to NMEA2000 micro-C cable. See the Appendix for supported PGNs.
