The Votronic Energy Monitor consists of a special communication module (Bluetooth Connector S-BC), which in connection with a Votronic solar charge controller (from 2013) with LCD Solar Computer S and/or the LCD Battery Computer S or VPC Jupiter With Smart Shunt, the values that are shown on the corresponding display are also transmitted to a mobile device via Bluetooth. The required app for Android or IOS is available free of charge in the Google Play Store or IOS App Store.
Connecting the Bluetooth Connector S-BC is extremely easy. It is simply plugged in between the Votronic solar charge controller and the LCD Solar Computer S or between the SmartShunt and the LCD Battery Computer S or VPC Jupiter using the modular cable included in the scope of delivery.
The device has two inputs and outputs, so that 1 solar controller with LCD solar computer and 1 smart shunt with LCD battery computer or VPC Jupiter can be connected to one communication module.
In this way, all information from the on-board battery, such as voltage, charging and discharging currents and the remaining capacity, as well as all data from the solar system can be conveniently read using a cell phone or tablet. In addition, the most important data is logged, graphically processed and stored for a longer period of time. Even output as a CSV file for your own analysis purposes is possible. Of course, the Bluetooth Connector S-BC can also be installed later at any time.
The Bluetooth connector S-BC is compatible with the following devices:
- VOTRONIC solar charge controller in SR and MPP technology from 2014 (serial number 14Vxx.xxxxx)
- VBCS-Triple type battery charger
- LCD Battery Computer S with Smart-Shunt (all versions)
- VPC Jupiter with smart shunt (all versions)
