iam a little bit confused about the misc settings about the shunt current and voltage.


Can someone advise how to set this values ?

Even, a free set value are possible.

The shunt current is the current your BMV shunt is rated at. Which for the standard BMV shunt is 500A. These can be upgraded for bigger systems - https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/shunt-600a so then you would change this setting.

The shunt voltage is really the voltage drop over the shunt this helps with calculations. This is a customizable thing as you can - if you are a person who experiments use it on different shunts and sometimes their rating is a bit different.

So in short, as Matthias said, these are usually two settings most users do not change.

You don't have to change this settings unless you have a different shunt.

The shunt delivered with the BMV is 500A/50mV.
