I don't know what solar charge controllers most of you run but if you have one of these, it would be wise to get this update downloaded as it prevents the possibility of the unit failing!

Important firmware update for SmartSolar Chargers


We recently released a firmware update for our SmartSolar Chargers. This fix is especially important for all 150V and 250V SmartSolar Charger models. The BlueSolar Charger range is not affected.

The new v1.37 firmware fixes a problem that can, in certain cases, cause the device to fail.

If you notice that your Solar Charger is no longer charging the batteries; or, in the case of larger models, it is behaving erratically – then the hardware has already failed and the unit will need to be replaced, as by that stage it will be too late to apply the firmware fix.

This update will prevent the failure from occurring."

Thank me later :D

Phew! we have the 75/15 Blue Smart Charger, which I guess will be the most popular sold.
Very Pleased with it thus far, can strongly recomend.

A BMV is a battery monitor not the smart solar charge controller, that may well be your "interface to it" but I have no clue other than that.
