As a novices in this new world of technology I can say that the product I brought which is the victron smart shunt is very user friendly as I have changed my caravan agm batteries to lithium batteries and it makes the world of difference in how I monitor my batteries and how they use the power. Aga

super simple to add into existing 4x4 set up, provides a simple information and display on the app. also can go deeper and get super detail information about battery usage.

Shunt is really a brilliant item, only issue I have is the Bluetooth is not that strong, you must be very close for it to work and it sometimes doesn't want to connect, Have even had to restart my phone to get it to connect.

Product Description

Victron SmartShunt 500A/50mV, 5 Year Warranty. The SmartShunt is an all in one battery monitor, only without a display. Your phone acts as the display. The SmartShunt connects via Bluetooth to the VictronConnect App on your phone (or tablet) and you can conveniently read out all monitored battery parameters, like state of charge, time to go, historical information and much more.

Alternatively the SmartShunt can be connected and be read by a GX device. Connection to the SmartShunt is made via a VE.Direct cable.

The SmartShunt is a good alternative for a BMV battery monitor, especially for systems where battery monitoring is needed but less wiring and clutter is wanted. The SmartShunt is equipped with Bluetooth, a VE.Direct port and a connection that can be used for: monitoring a second battery, midpoint monitoring or a temperature sensor.

A shunt is added to a system to measure current flow. This is needed for system monitoring or to calculate battery state of charge.

A shunt is a resistive element. When current passes through it a small voltage drop will occur over the shunt. If the current is small the voltage will be low, and if the current is large the voltage will be higher. If the current flow reverses, the voltage drop will change polarity. The voltage of the shunt is an indication of the amount of current and the direction of the current. This information can be used to find out how much current runs into a system or for battery state of charger calculation.

A shunt has a current and a voltage rating, for example 500 A, 50 mV. This means that if 500 A current passes through the shunt, there will be a 50 mV (= 0.05 V) voltage drop over the shunt.

The shunt needs to be rated to the maximum DC current that will flow into the combined consumers in the system.

Example: An inverter is connected to a battery. The maximum current will be the peak rating of the inverter. A 3000 VA inverter has a peak current of 6000 W, this is, at 12 V a 500 A current. A BMV battery monitor comes with a 500 A, 50 mV shunt. In case this shunt is not big enough you will need to add a bigger shunt. Victron shunts are available in the following sizes: 500, 1000, 2000 and 6000 A. And they are 50 mV. When using a bigger shunt make sure that you change the shunt parameters in the battery monitor.

  • Hi Do you guys sell or recommend a water proof box suitable for installing this item outside of our caravan?Thanks

    HI There

    We do not sorry.

    You could look at what is generally referred to as a project box. These are plastic encldosures that come in various sizes and can be modified to suit your needs.Jaycar electronics sell them.

  • Hi, is the 500a shunt ok to use with a 1500w inverter

    Hi There

    Yes, the 500A shunt will work with a 1500w inverter.

    Kind Regards
