The BMV-700 is our newest high precision battery monitor. The essential function of a battery monitor is to calculate ampere hours consumed and the state of charge of a battery. Ampere hours consumed are calculated by integrating the current flowing in or out of the battery.

Battery ‘fuel gauge’, time-to-go indicator, and much more
The remaining battery capacity depends on the ampere-hours consumed, discharge current, temperature and the age of the battery. Complex software algorithms are needed to take all these variables into account.
Next to the basic display options, such as voltage, current and ampere-hours consumed, the BMV-700 series also displays state of charge, time to go, and power consumption in Watts.
The BMV-702 features an additional input which can be programmed to measure the voltage (of a second battery), battery temperature or midpoint voltage (see below).
Use the Bluetooth Smart dongle to monitor your batteries on Apple or Android smartphones, tablets, macbooks and other devices.
Easy to install
All electrical connections are to the quick connect PCB on the current shunt. The shunt connects to the
monitor with a standard RJ12 telephone cable. Included: RJ 12 cable (10 m) and battery cable with fuse (2 m); no other components needed.
Also included are a separate front bezel for a square or round display appearance, a securing ring for the rear mounting and screws for the front mounting.
Easy to program (with your smartphone!)
A quick install menu and a detailed setup menu with scrolling texts assist the user when going through the various settings. Alternatively, choose the fast and easy solution: download the smartphone app (Bluetooth Smart dongle needed)
Midpoint voltage monitoring (BMV-702 only)
This feature, which is often used in industry to monitor large and expensive battery banks, is now for the first
time made available at a low cost, to monitor any battery bank. A battery bank consists of a string of series connected cells. The midpoint voltage is the voltage halfway along the string. Ideally, the midpoint voltage would be exactly half of the total voltage. In practice, however, deviations will be seen, that depend on many factors such as a different state of charge for new batteries or cells, different temperatures, internal leakage currents, capacities and much more. Large or increasing deviation of the midpoint voltage, points to improper battery care or a failed battery or cell. Corrective action following a midpoint voltage alarm can prevent severe damage to an expensive battery. Please consult the BMV manual for more information.

We offer the option of a full installation with every home standby generator or off grid generator we sell. Our in house team of experianced engineers are both GAS SAFE and NICEIC registered. Our work is fully insured and certificated to meet national and local regulations.
We carry out a full survey on your property to determine what size generator you require, where it can be sited and what type of fuel you would prefer. We undertake all building works such as the concrete base and trenches for cabling and pipe work. We have a specialist rigging team who can install a generator anywhere on your property. Once in position our fitters connect up all necessary services. We then perform a full commissioning program and issue all relevant certificates and documentation.
Our goal is for you to have an enjoyable, hassle-free generator installation experience. The Kamber Power installation team will take every precaution to ensure a safe, seamless installation. Your satisfaction is our top priority, so our team will keep you informed and ensure we are meeting your expectations. Below is an overview of what you can expect with a Kamber Power generator installation:
On the day of your installation, our installers will call you in the morning to let you know when they will be arriving.
Prior to starting the installation, our team lead will review the job details and answer any questions to ensure we are meeting all of your expectations.
Our team will prepare the work area for a clean and safe installation, by laying drop cloths and removing any potential safety obstacles.
Before starting the installation our installers will turn the electricity off from the mains.
The generator and transfer switch will be set in place and connected appropriately.
The system is then started to ensure proper operation. Our installers will run the system for a period of time, confirming the system’s overall operation.
A successful startup signifies the completion of the installation. Our team will then clean up the work area, removing any remnants of the installation.
Once you are comfortable with operating your new system and after answering any questions, our lead installer will review all paperwork and warranty information,
A Kamber Power representative will contact you to set up a final inspection. The inspectors will review our work and confirm that everything meets local building regulations.
