Victron Energy IP65 SmartShunts

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.

VE.Direct Cable- 1.5m cable with a VE.Direct socket. Note that a (Not Included) VE.Direct cable is needed to connect a GX device

Temperature Sensor- Optional (ASS000100000)

A Note Regarding The Range Of The Bluetooth Signal- The shunt and the electric cablese do negatively influence the range of the Bluetooth signal. The resulting range of 10 - 15 meters is however satisfactory in most cases. 
The proximity of other electrically conducting elements, such as the metal chassis of a vehicle or seawater around the hull if a boat, may reduce the range of the Bluetooth signal to an unacceptable level. The solution in such a case is to add a VE.Direct Bluetooth Dongle (ASS03536011) to the system, and to switch off Bluetooth in the SmartShunt.
