Smart Battery Sense vs BMV712 Battery Sensor

I have a BMV712 battery monitor (with the temperature sensor) and a MPPT 100/50 smart solar controller. The controller manual calls for a "Smart Battery Sense" module for temperature compensation.

Question: Does the BMV712 temperature sensor provide the information to the controller or do I also need a "Smart Battery Sense" module?

Thanks

Thanks. I just got the controller fired up, created a network and all is well. The monitor and controller are sharing information.

Thanks

Hi @scottz Is your MPPT smart and do you have a GX device? I'll assume all devices smart for now. No additional device required. When you set up a smart network the MPPT can read the bat temperature from the BMV. Note the cable is specific to the BMV.
