“A GSM/GPRS modem with Ethernet connection”
The Ethernet Remote is a modem which sends alarms, warnings and system status reports to cellular phones via text messages (SMS). It can also log data from Victron Battery Monitors, Multis, Quattros and Inverters to a website through a GPRS connection. The use of this website is free of charge.
The Ethernet Remote has the same functions as the Global Remote. An extra function of the Ethernet Remote is that it can connect with LAN, due to a special cable. In this way, the Ethernet Remote can be connected to the internet without a SIM-card.
Simple and easy to use
The idea is simple: you can use it to get SMS alarms from a Multi, a Battery System, or both. When monitoring the usage of batteries, it can be extremely helpful to receive under- and overvoltage alarms; whenever they occur. For this purpose, the Global Remote is perfect. A prepaid SIM-card (for example) in combination with the Global Remote is adequate for remotely monitoring your system.
The Ethernet Remote has one serial connection. This can be used to connect to a VE.Bus Multi/Quattro/Inverter unit or system, or a BMV Battery Monitor. To connect it to a BMV you will also need the connection kit accessory which needs to be purchased separately.
