Victron Energy Lynx Smart BMS

The Lynx Smart BMS is a dedicated Battery Management System for Victron Lithium Smart Batteries. There are multiple BMS-es available for our Smart Lithium series of batteries, and the Lynx Smart is the most feature rich and complete option. It is available in two versions: 500A (with M8 busbar connections) and 1000A (with M10 busbar connections).

  • Built-in 500A or 1000A contactor used as a fallback safety mechanism and also suitable as a remote controllable main system switch.
  • Battery monitor, indicating state of charge percentage and more data.
  • Pre-alarm signal: provide a warning before the system shuts down due to -for example- a low cell.
  • Bluetooth for use with our VictronConnect App, for setup and monitoring, including Instant Readout - key data of the BMS at-a-glance.
  • Local and remote monitoring using a Victron GX device, for example the Cerbo GX or Ekrano GX.

The Lynx Smart BMS is part of the modular Lynx Distribution system.
