ME-BMK Battery Monitor with 500A/50mV Shunt
Magnum Energy ME-BMK Battery Monitor with 500A/50mV Shunt
The ME-BMK (Battery Monitor Kit)* from Magnum Energy gives you a "fuel gauge" type of meter for your battery bank. It monitors the battery bank and reports the percentage state of charge, real time amps, voltage, amp-hours in/out, and the minimum/maximum DC volts. The ME-BMK includes the sense module, sense and communication cables, and a 500 amp shunt.
Monitoring your battery bank is easy with the Battery Monitor Kit (ME-BMK)* from Magnum Energy. Acting as a "fuel gauge" for your batteries, the ME-BMK monitors their state of charge (SOC) and then provides this information in an easy-to-understand display via the ME-RC remote. With accurate SOC readings, you can avoid unneccessary battery recharging, saving on fuel and long-term maintenance costs. If you already have a Magnum Inverter/Charger and Magnum Remote*, the ME-BMK is an easy retrofit. Simply install the kit according to the installation manual and begin monitoring your battery bank via the "Meter" button on your ME-RC.
* The ME-BMK-NS requires a Magnum inverter with a "Network" port and a ME-RC (revision 2.0 or higher) or ME-ARC remote control.
