Victron Energy Remote Panels and Monitoring from MPE-Online.com
Many Victron Energy products have the option of attaching remote panels and monitoring equipment which can add to the functionality and convenience of a Victron Energy installation. From Battery Monitors to Global Remotes the options are nearly endless. The VE.Net and VE.Bus can be utilised for systems with multiple devices that need to communicate or be controlled from one central location.
Browse the various categories below to find the device that is suitable for your application. Contact us with details of your application and we can recommend the right product for you.
The Battery Alarm is a small and low cost alarm panel which monitors your battery bank. It features both audible and visual alarms, as well as a potential free contact with normally open and normally closed contacts. Alarm thresholds and hysteresis are programmable by DIP switches.
The Blue Power Panel provides intuitive control for all devices connected to the VE.Net network. It can be used to
view and configure the full range of settings on VE.Net devices. Furthermore, its fully customizable overview
screens make it the ideal monitoring tool for your power system.
- Full control & monitoring of all connected VE.Net devices
- Integrated VE.Net to VE.Bus Converter (VVC)
- Real-time system status read-outs
- Customizable overview screens
- Special mounting frame for front or back side mounting (only GX-model)
- Easy to install
Using the VE.Direct to Bluetooth Smart dongle you can display your BMV or MPPT information on iOS and Android devices, using the VictronConnect app. View information wirelessly such as battery status and solar panel power, plus other useful data.
The dongle is able to read data from the BMV-70x series battery monitors and MPPT Solar Charge Controllers (except for the 150/70 and 150/85) using the VE.Direct communication port.
The BMV-700 is a high precision battery monitor. The essential function of a battery monitor is to calculate ampere hours consumed and the state of charge of a battery. Ampere hours consumed are calculated by integrating the current flowing in or out of the battery.
- Battery voltage, current, power, ampere-hours consumed and state of charge
- Remaining time at the current rate of discharge
- Programmable visual and audible alarm
- Programmable relay, to turn off non critical loads or to run a generator when needed
- 500 Amp quick connect shunt and connection kit
- Shunt selection capability up to 10,000 Amps
- VE.Direct communication port
- Stores a wide range of historical events, which can be used to evaluate usage patterns and battery health
- Wide input voltage range: 9,5 95V
- High current measurement resolution: 10 mA (0,01A)
- Low current consumption: 2,9Ah per month (4mA) @12V and 2,2Ah per month (3mA) @ 24V
The Skylla Charger Switch is designed for use as a remote switch for the Skylla TG range of chargers. Easily installed and operated.
The Color Control GX provides intuitive control and monitoring for all products connected to it.
The list of Victron products that can be connected is endless:
- MPPT 150/70
- BMV-600 series
- BMV-700 series
- Lynx Ion
- And even more
This panel is intended both for Multis and Quattros. It allows PowerControl and PowerAssist current limit setting for two AC sources: a generator and shore side current for example. Setting range: up to 200 Amps. The brightness of the LEDs is automatically reduced during night time.
A GSM/GPRS modem with Ethernet connection.
The Ethernet Remote has the same functions as the Global Remote. An extra function of the Ethernet Remote is that it can connect with LAN, due to a special cable. In this way, the Ethernet Remote can be connected to the internet without a SIM-card.
Obtaining system information, wherever and whenever
The Global Remote is a modem which sends alarms, warnings and system status reports to cellular phones via text messages (SMS). It can also log data from Victron Battery Monitors, Multis, Quattros and Inverters to a website through a GPRS connection. The use of this website is free of charge. The idea is simple: you can use it to get SMS alarms from a Multi, a Battery System, or both. When monitoring the usage of batteries, it can be extremely helpful to receive under and overvoltage alarms; whenever they occur. For this purpose, the Global Remote is perfect. A prepaid SIM-card (for example) in combination with the Global Remote is adequate for remotely monitoring your system.
Advanced use: Monitoring historic data
Taking it one step further, an internet browser and connection is all you need to view all of the data online. You can simply create an account on the website and add your modem(s). Subsequently you can configure the GPRS connection, which will enable you to monitor the historic data of several basic properties such as system voltages, power levels and status information. All of this data is graphed. These graphs are available in daily, weekly and monthly timeframes.
The Ion Control shows all vital data from the Lithium Battery system:
- Battery voltage (V)
- Battery charge/discharge current (A)
- Ampere-hours consumed (Ah)
- State of charge (%)
- Remaining time at the current rate of discharge until the battery has reached 90% discharge
- Visual alarm: almost charged, almost discharged
- The depth of the deepest discharge
- The cumulative number of Amp hours drawn from the battery
- The minimum battery voltage
- The maximum battery voltage
- The minimum cell voltage
- The maximum cell voltage
The MPPT Control lets you see the status as well as the setup of all BlueSolar MPPT Charge Controllers that have a VE.Direct communications port. The new MPPT Control is mounted in the familiar BMV-700 series housing, maintaining a consistent and professional look to your panels and systems monitoring equipment.
The Phoenix Charger Control panel provides remote control and monitoring of the charge process with LED indication of the charger status. In addition, the remote panel also offers output current adjustment that can be used to limit the output current and thus the power drawn from the AC supply. This is particularly useful when operating the charger from limited shore power or small gensets. The panel can also be used to change the battery charging parameters. The brightness of the LEDs is automatically reduced during night time. Connection to the charger is with a standard UTP cable.
