Photonic Universe is an official distributor of products from Victron Energy - the?ÿglobally renowned manufacturer of high quality?ÿhybrid power electronics. Victron Energy solar charge controllers have a longstanding reputation for their outstanding reliability, innovative design and superior build quality.

This Victron 500A BMV series battery monitor uses a high-precision battery shunt designed to expertly measure?ÿvital charging and performance?ÿdata for?ÿyour batteries.?ÿStatistics such as battery voltage, charge / discharge current as energy flows in to and out of the battery, Amp Hours consumed, state of charge and time-to-go?ÿare displayed on the LCD monitor for convenient viewing. The user also has the option to manually adjust charging settings for enhanced system personalisation.

Battery data

The smart battery shunt?ÿmeasures?ÿthe vital parameters relating to the battery condition and the energy it receives?ÿ/ provides,?ÿand transmits this information?ÿto?ÿthe LCD?ÿmonitor, where it can be viewed by the user (and where some settings can be amended if necessary). This information includes:

  • Battery voltage: Displayed to two decimal places.

  • Battery state of charge: Indicated as a percentage value from 0-100%.

  • Battery charging / discharging current and power:?ÿThe current?ÿ(A) and power (W)?ÿflowing out of the battery (load consumption)?ÿare displayed as negative values,?ÿwhile the current and power?ÿflowing into the battery?ÿare?ÿdisplayed as positive values.

  • Amp hours consumed: For example, if 12A is drawn from a fully charged battery during a period of 3 hours, the monitor will show -36.0Ah consumed by the battery.

  • Time-to-go:?ÿThe?ÿmonitor?ÿis able to?ÿestimate the?ÿapproximate length of time that the battery will continue to support the current load, before?ÿthe battery?ÿrequires re-charging.?ÿ

An in-depth?ÿdata?ÿlog also records historical data?ÿto enable the user to evaluate usage patterns and determine overall battery health. This includes values such as?ÿthe highest/ lowest recorded voltages, deepest recorded discharge,?ÿtime since last?ÿfull discharge, cumulative Amp hours drawn, time since last full charge, total energy charged/discharged and many more.


This battery monitor is supplied with a 500A 50mV shunt, although if required, this can be replaced with a different sized shunt. The monitor is compatible with shunts up to?ÿ9999A and/or 75mV.

The user can set high/low thresholds for battery voltage or battery state of charge. If either parameter falls outside of this specified range, the battery shunt?ÿwill transmit a signal to?ÿa relay which activates an audible alarm. When the alarm is triggered, the LCD monitor will?ÿsound, the backlight will flash and an alarm symbol will appear on the display.

Further?ÿcustomisable features include?ÿthe option to specify which parameters are displayed on the monitor, the option to 'lock' settings in place, and a fully adjustable backlight on the LCD display.

Advanced communication

By connecting?ÿthis battery monitor to a Victron VE Direct Bluetooth Dongle, or the VE Direct USB cable (both sold separately), the user can gain access to the VictronConnect App,?ÿwhich unlocks?ÿnumerous possibilities for?ÿadvanced programming and remote monitoring of your battery system. Once the monitor is paired with the app,?ÿa wide range of?ÿadditional features are made available, including real-time data transmission, as well as the option to amend battery storage information, program alarms and relays, amend charging parameters, customise the appearance and quantity of data displayed on the monitor?ÿand set up or join an existing VE.Smart network.

The VictronConnect app is compatible with?ÿmost mobile devices and computers, including Android and iOS smartphones, tablets, iPads, MacBooks, Windows PCs/laptops.


This battery monitor is suitable for use with any?ÿ12V, 24V or 48V?ÿLead Acid / Gel / AGM / Lithium battery or battery bank. The maximum admissible nominal?ÿcurrent?ÿthrough this device?ÿusing the supplied shunt is 500A.

Additional items

The following items are supplied with this product: a 10m cable to connect the LCD monitor to the battery shunt, a positive supply cable with fuse?ÿto connect the battery shunt to the positive battery terminal, a square frame for the LCD monitor and 4 x mounting screws.

Click on the Installation tab for further instructions.

This unit comes with a detailed user manual which explains connection and operations. A basic installation guide is also?ÿavailable to download in the 'Documents' tab.

Please note:

  • The shunt should be connected on the negative battery wire, close to the battery.
  • The LCD display is designed to be flush-mounted in order to achieve a level surface, and therefore requires a recess to be cut in the mounting surface / wall. A square frame is supplied with the LCD monitor to offer an alternative to the circular design (flush mounting still required).

The following videos provide a brief overview of how to connect the battery monitor and how to optimise the sync parameters:
