The Victron Energy miniBMS can replace the VE.Bus BMS in several applications. It is however not suitable for use with VE.Bus MultiPlus and Quattro inverter/chargers: it has no VE.Bus interface. The miniBMS is intended for use with Victron Smart LiFePo4 batteries with M8 circular connectors.
The miniBMS has two outputs, similar to the VE.Bus BMS.
The Load output is normally high and becomes free floating in case of cell under voltage (default 2.8V/cell, adjustable on the battery between 2.6V and 2.8V per cell). Maximum current: 1A. The Load output is not short-circuit protected.
The Load output can be used to control:
- A high current relay or contactor.
- The remote on/off input of a Battery Protect, inverter or DC-DC converter or other loads.
