Victron Battery Protect 48V-100A: Advanced Power Management for Industrial and Off-Grid Systems

Note: ""Victron Battery Protect"" units are NOT Bluetooth-enabled. See ""Victron Smart Battery Protect"" units if Bluetooth connectivity is required.

Important Considerations for Inverter Connection

It's crucial to avoid connecting inverters or inverter/chargers directly to the BatteryProtect's DC inputs to prevent reverse current damage. Instead, use the BatteryProtect to control the inverter or inverter/charger via its remote port, as illustrated in the manual.

Essential for Preserving Battery Health in 48V Systems

The Victron Battery Protect 48V-100A is key to safeguarding batteries in high-power applications from complete discharge. Ideal for industrial setups and off-grid systems, it disconnects non-essential loads before the battery is drained or too low for operational needs.

Uni-Directional Current Management for Enhanced Safety

Designed as a uni-directional device, the BatteryProtect ensures safe current flow, either to a load or from a charger, providing reliable over-voltage protection for sensitive equipment in demanding environments.

Specialized for High-Voltage Systems and Lithium Batteries

With an intelligent system that caters to 48V setups, this device is also optimized for Li-ion batteries, offering a unique control mode via the VE.Bus BMS and functioning as a charge interrupter for advanced battery care.

Ultra-Low Consumption for Energy Efficiency

The BatteryProtect's minimal energy consumption is vital in maintaining system efficiency, particularly crucial in 48V setups like large solar arrays and industrial machinery.

Over Voltage and Ignition Protection for Industrial Safety

Equipped with robust over-voltage protection and MOSFET switches, the BatteryProtect ensures safe and spark-free operation, a must-have for industrial and off-grid applications.

Versatile Remote Switch Functionality

Its ability to function as a remote switch offers additional convenience, allowing for remote operation of various devices, an essential feature in large-scale and remotely managed systems.

Smart Alarm and Load Management

The delayed alarm feature and intelligent load management system of the BatteryProtect ensure seamless operation, maintaining system integrity and preventing unnecessary power interruptions.

The Victron Battery Protect 48V-100A is an ideal choice for managing high-capacity battery systems in industrial and off-grid applications, ensuring optimal performance and extended battery life.

Victron Energy Limited Warranty Policy

Victron Energy warrants its products to be free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of 5 years from the date of purchase by the end user, with a maximum of 66 months from the Victron Energy invoice date. Exceptions on this are: lead acid batteries; 2 years from date of purchase by the end user, with a maximum of 30 months from the Victron Energy invoice date, Lithium-ion batteries; 3 years from date of purchase by the end user. In addition to this proof of correct battery usage is required when making a battery warranty claim.

During this period, Victron Energy will, at its option, repair or replace the defective product free of charge. The warranty does not include performing or reimbursing de‐installation, transportation and re‐installation. This warranty will be considered void if the unit has suffered any physical damage or alteration, either internally or externally, and does not cover damages arising from improper use like:
• Reverse of battery polarity.
• Inadequate connection.
• Mechanical shock or deformation.
• Contact with liquid or oxidation by condensation.
• Use in inappropriate environment (dust, corrosive vapor, humidity, high temperature, biological infestation...).
• Breakage or damage due to lightning.
• Connection terminals and screws destroyed or other damages, like overheat, due to insufficient tightening.
• For any electronical breakage except due to lightning (reverse polarity, over‐voltage due to external cause), the state ofthe internal control diode and of the inputs/output X and Y capacitors determine the warranty.

This warranty will not apply where the product has been misused, neglected, improperly installed, or repaired by anyone else than Victron Energy or one of its authorized Qualified Service Partners. In order to qualify for the warranty, the product must not be disassembled or modified.

Repair or replacement are our sole remedies and Victron Energy shall not be liable for damages, whether direct, incidental,special, or consequential, even caused by negligence or fault.

Victron Energy owns all parts removed from repaired products. Victron Energy uses new or reconditioned parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty repairs and building replacement products. If Victron Energy repairs or replaces a part of a product, its warranty term is not extended. In case of replacement the new component has a warranty of 6 months, without effect on the initial warranty period. All remedies and the measure for damages are limited to the above. Victron Energy shall in no event be liable for consequential, incidental, contingent orspecial damages, even if having been advised of the probability of such damages. Any and all other warranties expressed or implied arising by law, course of dealing, course of performance, usage of trade or otherwise, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are limited in duration to a period of two (2) years from the date of purchase.

Life Support Policy
As a general policy, Victron Energy, does not recommend the use of any of its products in life support applications where failure or malfunction of the Victron Energy's product can be reasonably expected to cause failure of the life support device or to significantly affect its safety or effectiveness. Victron Energy does not recommend the use of any of its products in direct patient care. Victron Energy will not knowingly sell its products for use in such applications unless it receives in writing assurances satisfactory to Victron Energy that the risks of injury or damage have been minimized, the customer assumes all such risks, and the Liability of Victron Energy is adequately protected under the circumstances.

As a product requires service, it must be brought back to the place of purchase. In case no contact can be taken with the merchant, or if he is either unable or not allowed to provide service, direct contact should be taken with Victron Energy.

Warranty on Repairs
The warranty period on products or on printed circuits boards repaired by Victron Energy as well as on printed circuit boards for replacement is 6 months from delivery by Victron Energy.

It is the responsibility of the sender to sufficiently package these products. The transport must be organized in a way to avoid any damage, especially when a single unit or heavy unit is sent.

If a part of the terms and conditions set out above is held invalid, void or unenforceable due to any particular national or international legislation, it shall not affect other parts of the terms and conditions remaining.
