How Many Batteries Can A Battery Monitor, Monitor?

Question:

How many separate batteries, i.e. house bank, a/c, start and thruster can the Victron 712 monitor? - Roger

Answer:

Like most battery monitors, the Victron BMV-712 only provides the ability to monitor one battery bank for current and consequently battery capacity. You’ll need a dedicated battery monitor per battery bank you want to monitor. Remember the BMV-712 allows for a 2nd voltage input, but it does NOT provide option for a 2nd battery monitor shunt (e.g. measures current). - Jeff
