Victron Global Remote 2: A GSM/GPRS modem
The Global 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.
Victron Ethernet Remote: A GSM/GPRS modem with Ethernet connection
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.
Connections Global Remote
The Global Remote has two serial connections. They can be used to connect to a VE.Bus Multi/Quattro/Inverter unit or system. This connection needs a MK2 which is supplied with the VGR. The other connection is to connect a BMV-600S or BMV-602S Battery Monitor. To connect it to a BMV you will also need the connection kit accessory which needs to be purchased separately. The Global Remote also has a connection for an optional accessory, the VGR IO Extender.
Connections Ethernet Remote
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.
Advanced use: Monitoring historic data
Taking it one step further, an internet browser and -connection is all you need to view all of the data online. You can simply create an account on the website and add your modem(s). Subsequently you can configure the GPRS connection, which will enable you to monitor the historic data of several basic properties such as system voltages, power levels and status information. All of this data is graphed. These graphs are available in daily, weekly and monthly timeframes.
