Checked the 712 with the Fluke this morning and the situation is corrected! Looks like the 1A fuse did the trick. One less mystery in life.
Also, I should note that my fuse was removed for about 5 to 7-minutes and the 712 retained all its previous settings. However, I had taken the precaution of saving all the settings to a file and archiving them (via that facility in the Victron app).
- I'm not sure if the 701 may have shipped with the wrong fuse. There may be some more info in the Victron Community Forum or you can just check it. If you aren't getting difference between the Victron and your DVM reading (usually in the hundredths of a volt), then I'd think you're all set.
- I, too, rely on my phone to read the info. However, the data sent by BT is, of course, dependent on the BMV-712 signal processing. My sense is to make sure all the incoming data to the 712 is as accurate as possible to allow its algorithms to work properly. Since I can't see the 712's code, I'm not sure what the "downstream" effect produced by slightly inaccurate signals will be. But then, there's my OCD
- I think for the most part the SOC was fairly accurate, though it seemed that my (temperature-compensated) voltages strayed a bit from what I might expect from tables to which I have been referring. Not much, but some
