Perfect protection for Lithium (LiFePO4) batteries

Victron’s extremely clever Smart BMS 12/200 Battery Management System has been specifically designed for boats and vehicles with 12V systems, a 12V alternator and Lithium-Iron-Phosphate (LiFePO4) Smart Batteries.

Combining a Current Limiter, Battery Combiner and Battery Protector in a robust and compact solution, the Smart BMS 12/20 enables owners to safely connect any load, any size 12V alternator (and starter battery) and any charger to a Smart Lithium battery or battery bank. Monitoring and protecting each individual battery cell within the battery (or battery bank) the Smart BMS 12/200 will disconnect the alternator, charge sources or DC loads as soon as it detects low battery cell voltage, high battery cell voltage or over temperature.

The Smart BMS’s dedicated alternator connection provides current limiting and one-way traffic from the alternator into the battery; this means any size alternator (and starter battery) can be safely connected to the Smart Lithium battery (or battery bank) while the starter battery is protected from excessive discharge.

The Smart BMS 12/200 comes complete with Bluetooth capability and a remote on/off connector, enabling users to remotely monitor, configure and turn on or off both the BMS and the system; and a pre- alarm contact, giving a warning signal before the BMS disconnects the batteries from the system.
