Lynx Shunt VE.Can | 1000 A shunt | Main fuse holder

No rating yet

Product description

The Lynx Shunt VE.Can combines a 1000 A shunt for battery monitoring, and a main fuse holder (ANL/CNN fuse). Additional features include a relay and an optional temperature sensor. Thanks to its wide voltage range from 9 to 60 VDC and current limit of 1000 A, it is ideal for 12, 24 and 48 V systems. The device is a component of the Lynx DC distribution system and connects to a Lynx Distributor and cannot be used as a standalone unit. The product features a robust ABS plastic chassis with an IP 22 protection rating.

Additional specifications and description

Application and features

The function of the Lynx Shunt VE.Can is to provide battery monitoring functionality in a Victron-based ESS when using (third-party) batteries with an integrated BMS.

It is compatible with 12, 24 and 48 V batteries and supports DC currents up to 1000 A.

The shunt monitors battery voltage and charging/discharging current and communicates them to a GX device over VE.Can.

The GX device, a Cerbo GX for example, uses the information from the Lynx Shunt VE.Can to infer the battery state of charge.

An additional temperature sensor can be connected to the device, to allow for battery temperature monitoring. 

The built-in relay can be used to trigger other devices such as generators or alarms upon certain conditions such as low state of charge or overtemperature, or it can be triggered manually. 


Design and mounting

The Lynx Shunt VE.Can features the same 8x30 mm tinned copper busbars, with a shunt installed on the negative busbar and a fuse on the positive busbar.

The enclosure is made from sturdy ABS plastic with an IP22 protection rating. The Lynx Shunt VE.Can should be wall-mounted using the 5 mm mounting holes. The device can operate in a wide temperature range from -40 °C to +60 °C and up to 95% humidity, but it is not suited for external mounting.

All devices from the Lynx family are modular and designed to be interconnected or “daisy chained” via the busbar terminals on the left side using the provided M8 screw holes.

The Lynx Shunt VE.Can connects to the Lynx Distributor using an RJ10 cable (the cable is provided with the Lynx Distributor).


What is the Lynx distribution system?

A Lynx distribution system usually consists of a single Lynx Shunt VE.Can module or a single Lynx Smart BMS module. The choice between a Lynx Shunt VECan or a Lynx Smart BMS depends on the type of batteries in the system.

The Lynx Smart BMS can only be used with the Victron Energy Lithium Smart Batteries, while the Lynx Shunt VE.Can is suitable for all other batteries.

Then, single, multiple or a combination of Lynx Distributor modules and/or Lynx Power In modules are added. Together, they form a continuous negative and positive busbar with DC connections and, depending on the configuration, integrated fuses a battery monitor and/or lithium battery management.

In systems that do not require battery monitoring and management, it is possible to only use Lynx Power In modules and/or Lynx Distributor modules without a Lynx Smart BMS module or a Lynx Shunt VE.Can module.
