BMS For 8 cell, 24v volt Lithium-iron-phosphate DIY batteries.
80 amp continuous charge or discharge current.
Low Temperature Charging cutoff at -1c.
The Apps allow you to monitor SOC (state of charge), Current, Voltage, cell balance, temperature, and more.
This unit has a connection for a remote shutoff switch. Useful for storage or security.
Bluetooth Module is included, Balance wires are included, USB module is an additional purchase.
Final assembly, testing and calibration is done in Naples, Florida. Units with 8 gauge wires and/or crimped lugs are assembled in Naples, FL. The BMS is manufactured in China.

FYI for experimenters: The BMS communicates with a 5v TTL UART at 9600 baud. It is directly compatible with Arduinos, etc.
We have written a new Arduino library for the BMSs, now available on the downloads page. The beta version allows you to read all the monitoring parameters and switch charge and discharge on/off. Future releases will have full read/write capability. A python library is also in the works.
