BC300 Monitors all Connections Directly from the Battery

BMPRO BC300 External Shunt and CommLink provide additional battery monitoring for your BatteryPlus35 and J35 systems.

The BatteryPlus35 and J35 battery management systems allow high current loads and external charge sources to connect directly to the battery via the BC300 External Shunt.

This enhances system behaviour with temperature monitoring of the battery for greater protection.

Key Features

  • High current/external charge  monitoring
  • Wireless Bluetooth communication to Commlink – easy to install/retrofit
  • DIY installation and simple pairing procedure

Tech Tips from David Bayliss

BC300 CommLink: This product is one of our top-selling items and continues to grow in popularity. Let's take a look at why it is becoming such an integral addition to a battery management system.

The BC300 Commlink enables customers to utilise higher amp loads that are not able to be connected directly to the Power Management Systems such as the BP35 or J35 ranges.

Where loads can not be connected directly to a Power Management system and need to be connected directly to battery terminals – eg additional solar, inverter, CPAP machine – without a BC300 CommLink the essential battery information on charging and discharging that these devices create is not captured. This potentially leads to incorrect readings on the user's App or in RV displays such as Odyssey, JControl or Trek.

Devices that are power management critical and require a permanent connection to a battery such as Sleep Apnea CPAP devices should be connected directly to the battery through a BC300 CommLink.

This is so that in the unfortunate circumstance of the Power Management system identifying that a battery requires critical protection due to being discharged too low, and engaging ECO mode, the CPAP will continue to operate until the battery can no longer support the device, regardless.

The Shunt and the CommLink

The BC300 Commlink consists of two parts  - the BC300 Shunt and the CommLink.  The BC300 is the device that is attached to the negative of the battery terminal and measures voltage, amps, time and temperature which are used in the calculations to provide State of Charge (SOC) and State of Health (SOH) in conjunction with Time Remaining.

The Commlink connects to the Power Management system such as the BP35 or J35 via a CAN cable and then communicates back down to the BC300 connected to the battery via BMPRO’s exclusive Bluetooth enabled comms protocols.

Finally, once this data is available up at the Power Management system level it is converted to easy to understand battery status information that is vitally important when managing customers' energy requirements.

Guys, your service was outstanding, but I did not receive the full order (there was no washer included in the pack - I received the towball & the nut, but no washer),

Any chance you can send me the 32mm washer to go with the set?

Many Thanks

    Great tool to send your battery condition voltages and wattage to your battery management systems. Simple pairing connects the shunt to the BMS.
