PHOENIX - Victron Sinewave Inverter

Product Overview

Phoenix DC/AC Inverter 

SinusMax – Superior engineering Developed for professional duty, the Phoenix range of inverters is suitable for the widest range of applications. The design criteria have been to produce a true sine wave inverter with optimized efficiency but without compromise in performance. Employing hybrid HF technology, the result is a top quality product with compact dimensions, light in weight and capable of supplying power, problem-free, to any load.

Extra start-up power A unique feature of the SinusMax technology is very high start-up power. Conventional high frequency technology does not offer such extreme performance. Phoenix inverters, however, are well suited to power up difficult loads such as computers and low power electric tools.

Virtually unlimited power thanks to parallel and 3-phase operation capability Up to 6 units inverters can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output. Six 24/5000 units, for example, will provide 24kW / 30kVA output power. Operation in 3-phase configuration is also possible.

To transfer the load to another AC source: the automatic transfer switch For our lower power models we recommend the use of our Filax Automatic Transfer Switch. The Filax features a very short switchover time (less than 20 miliseconds) so that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption.

Computer interface All models have a RS-485 port. All you need to connect to your PC is our MK3-USB VE.Bus to USB interface (see under accessories). Together with our VEConfigure software, which can be downloaded free of charge from our website, all parameters of the inverters can be customized. This includes output voltage and frequency, over and under voltage settings and programming the relay. This relay can for example be used to signal several alarm conditions, or to start a generator. The inverters can also be connected to VENet, the new power control network of Victron Energy, or to other computerized monitoring and control systems.

Phoenix Inverter Control

This panel can also be used on a MultiPlus Inverter/Charger when an automatic transfer switch but no charger function is desired. The brightness of the LEDs is automatically reduced during night time.

Color Control GX

Provides monitor and control. Locally, and also remotely on the VRM Portal.

MK3-USB VE.Bus to USB interface

Connects to a USB port

VE.Bus to NMEA 2000 interface

Connects the device to a NMEA 2000 marine electronics network.

BMV-700 Battery Monitor

The BMV-700 Battery Monitor features an advanced microprocessor control system combined with high resolution measuring systems for battery voltage and charge/discharge current. Besides this, the software includes complex calculation algorithms, like Peukert’s formula, to exactly determine the state of charge of the battery. The BMV-700 selectively displays battery voltage, current, consumed Ah or time to go. The monitor also stores a host of data regarding performance and use of the battery.

Protection Key

a) output short circuit

b) overload

c) battery voltage too high

d) battery voltage too low

e) temperature too high

f) 230 V AC on inverter output

g) input voltage ripple too high
