System Monitor Features
The BMV 712 is provided as part of the Negative Bus kit. It is a very low power consumption Bluetooth enabled battery monitor. Parameters on the BMV can be configured and viewed on a smart phone or tablet using the VictronConnect app. The VictronConnect manual can be viewed here.
With the addition of a Color Control GX, parameters on the BMV can be displayed on the Color Control screen when connected via a VE.Direct cable. Battery state, voltage, Ah used, time remaining and other parameters available on the BMV will be available on the Color Control.
Victron inverter chargers connect to the Color Control via VE.Bus which uses a standard ethernet cable for connection. The Color Control will display various MultiPlus parameters and allow control of basic functions such as shore power current limit.
All parameters available on the Color Control can be viewed on the Victron VRM Portal which includes extensive graphing and data export capabilities.
