The Victron Energy VE.Bus BMS protects each individual cell of a Victron lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4 or LFP) battery.
Each individual cell of a LiFePO4 battery must be protected against over voltage, under voltage and over temperature. Victron LiFePO4 batteries have integrated Balancing, Temperature and Voltage control (acronym: BTV) and connect to the VE.Bus BMS with two M8 circular connector cord sets. The BTVs of several batteries can be daisy chained.
The BMS will:
- Shut down or disconnect loads in case of imminent cell under voltage.
- Reduce charge current in case of imminent cell overvoltage or over temperature (VE.Bus products only, see below).
- Shut down or disconnect battery chargers in case of imminent cell overvoltage or over temperature.
Protects 12V, 24V and 48V systems
The operating voltage range of the BMS: 9 to 70V DC.
Communicates with all VE.Bus products
The VE.Bus BMS connects to a MultiPlus, Quattro or Phoenix inverter with a standard RJ45 UTP cable.
