The Smart Battery Shunt
The SmartShunt is an all in one battery monitor, only without a display. Your phone acts as the display. The SmartShunt connects via Bluetooth to the VictronConnect App on your phone (or tablet) and you can conveniently read out all monitored battery parameters, like state of charge, time to go, historical information and much more.
Alternatively the SmartShunt can be connected and be read by a GX device. Connection to the SmartShunt is made via a VE.Direct cable.
The SmartShunt is a good alternative for a BMV battery monitor, especially for systems where battery monitoring is needed but less wiring and clutter is wanted.
The SmartShunt is equipped with Bluetooth, a VE.Direct port and a connection that can be used for: monitoring a second battery, midpoint monitoring or a temperature sensor.
The SmartShunt is available in 500A. The 1000A and 2000A will follow later this year.
To install the MK3-USB driver on a computer without internet, first download the MK3-USB driver using VEConfig3 and install it by selecting the menu Special -> USB Drivers. Only afterward connect it to your computer for the first time.
On computers with internet, Windows will automatically download the correct driver itself.

Morningstar’s MeterHub (HUB-1) allows multiple Morningstar products to communicate over a
Meterbus network to provide improved data monitoring, additional capabilities and lower system
• Enables multiple controllers to share a single TriStar meter and display both single controller
data (TriStar #1, TriStar #2…) as well as aggregated data for the entire system.
• Enables multiple controllers to share a single Relay Driver and fully utilize all 4 channels of
the Relay Driver for different functions (alarms, load disconnects, generator starts) from
The MeterHub allows up to 15 Morningstar products on a single MeterBus network. The product
electrically isolates devices that supply power to the network, preventing damage to the network in
the event of grounding problems. Five status LED’s indicate the proper network connection to each port.
The MeterHub is suitable for either wall or DIN rail mounting.
