With Bluetooth built-in, the BMV Smart is ready for the Internet of Things (IoT) era. With Bluetooth being
implemented in most other Victron Energy products, wireless communication between products will simplify
system installation and enhance performance.

Easy to install
All electrical connections are to the quick connect PCB on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the
monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable. Included: RJ 12 cable (10 m) and battery cable with fuse (2 m);
no other components needed.
Also included are a separate front bezel for a square or round display appearance, a securing ring for rear
mounting and screws for front mounting.
Midpoint voltage monitoring
One bad cell or one bad battery can destroy a large, expensive battery bank. When batteries are connected in
series, a timely warning can be generated by measuring the midpoint voltage. Please see the BMV manual,
section 5.2, for more information.
The Battery Balancer (BMS012201000) is recommended by Victron to maximize service life of series-connected lead-acid
Very low current draw from the battery
Current consumption: 0,7Ah per month (1mA) @12V and 0,6Ah per month (0,8mA) @ 24V
Especially Li-ion batteries have virtually no capacity left when discharged until low voltage shutdown.
After shutdown due to low cell voltage, the capacity reserve of a Li-ion battery is approximately 1Ah per
100Ah battery capacity. The battery will be damaged if the remaining capacity reserve is drawn from the
battery. A residual current of 10mA for example may damage a 200Ah battery if the system is left in
discharged state during more than 8 days.
Bi-stable alarm relay
Prevents increased current draw in case of an alarm.
- 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: 6,5 – 70V
- High current measurement resolution: 10 mA (0,01A)
- Additional input to measure voltage (of a second battery), temperature or midpoint voltage, and
corresponding alarm and relay settings
Offroad Living provide a minimum full 12 months Manufacturer’s Warranty on all products we sell from the date original date of purchase (unless otherwise specified in the product listing). In the case of the AllSpark Inverter Generators, this is 12 months or 600 hours, whichever occurs first.

In the event of a defect and before returning the product for warranty, the buyer must contact Offroad Living first. We will run through a series of trouble shooting and fault finding checks to determine the fault or defect first. We may request photos/videos of the problem be sent to us electronically by email. If it cannot be resolved, we may request the product be returned to us for warranty inspection. If it is a warranty issue we will organise the return portage costs, if it is unclear we may ask that you organise the return of the item, and if it is found to be a warranty issue, we will refund the full postage cost. As part of our “Dead on Arrival” guarantee, should a product be found to be defective or faulty due to manufacturing defects during the first 30 days, we will promptly repair or replace the goods or supply a full refund of the purchase price. This choice is at the Buyer’s discretion during that first 30 days. After the first 30 days, the decision to repair, replace or provide a refund during the warranty period is at the sole discretion of Offroad Living. Any repair or replacement products or parts supplied by Offroad Living will be subject to the remaining time of the original 12 month Warranty period.
This Warranty does not exclude the consumer guarantees under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA). Should we supply you with goods that fail to meet one or more of the consumer guarantees, you are entitled to a remedy – either repair, replacement or refund as required by law.
Should you need to make a Warranty claim or general enquiry relating to defects, your consumer rights or remedies please contact Offroad living at us at firstname.lastname@example.org
30 Day money back Guarantee:
If you are not happy with your purchase, change your mind or make an incorrect purchase, you may return the product to us within the first 30 days for a refund (minus shipping cost if it is a change of mind/incorrect purchase). The product must be returned in the original packaging, in a new and unused condition, free of defects with all accessories, cables and spares.
Faults/Repairs outside of Warranty:
If service or repairs are required outside of the Warranty period, please us at email@example.com for assistance. We may ask for photos/video of the faults via email to determine next steps. All postage costs (sending and receiving) will be the buyer’s responsibility.
Once the fault is determined we will then advise what options are available to you.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your purchase and thank you for your business.
