For lithium batteries temperature data is used to disable charging when they are too cold: charging lithium batteries near or below freezing causes permanent damage to the cells and not every battery is built with internal protection against this condition.
The connection between Smart Battery Sense and one or more Solar Charger(s) is wireless; it uses VE.Smart Network – a wireless technology based on Bluetooth.
Information transmitted can be used simultaneously by one, two or more Solar Chargers connected to the same 12V, 24V and 48V battery bank. The Smart Network is set up using the VictronConnect app.
Installation is simple, quick and tidy. Just connect the unit’s two ring terminals to your battery terminals and attach the Smart Battery Sense unit directly onto the battery-body using its self-adhesive strip.
