Victron MultiPlus Inverter Charger 48/5000/70-100 230V VE Bus
The Victron MultiPlus Inverter Charger 48/5000/70-100 230V is a high quality, reliable, efficient, feature rich, well supported, versatile, tried and tested, European Inverter Charger, with a 5 year warranty, that can be used, to provide 230V AC power, in your house, cabin, RV or boat. It is a pure sine wave inverter and a powerful battery charger, that can be connected to shore power (230v AC socket) or a generator. The Inverter Charger provides Off Grid Power (using batteries), when there is no shore power (not connected to a 230V AC Socket) or generator input. Change over from shore power or generator power to battery/Off Grid Power is fast (less than 20 milliseconds). This means that computers and other devices continue to operate without any disruption. This Victron Multiplus Inverter Charger allows difficult loads, such as inductive motors in fridges, freezers and water pumps to start without a problem because it can supply surge power of up to 10 000W.
Many Victron Multiplus Inverters (up to six of the same type) can be connected together in parallel to provide much higher output power. Three Victron Multiplus Inverters of the same type can also be connected to provide a three phase supply, This Victron Multiplus Inverter/Charger should be connected to a 48V battery bank.
The Victron Multiplus Inverter has a very useful feature called "Power Assist". This feature ensures that not too much power is drawn from the input AC supply (causing tripping). This feature also allows some power to be supplied from your batteries as well as the generator/shore power, when excess power is needed. This means that a smaller capacity generator or shore power input supply can be used to charge batteries and supply AC power to your loads.
The Victron Multiplus Inverter Charger is also compatible with Lithium Ion batteries.
It is a good idea to use a Victron BlueSolar Charge Controller, http://shop.logenergy.com.au/products/victron-bluesolar-charge-controller-mppt-1507 0-for-charging-of-12243648v-batteries when using the sun and solar panels to charge your batteries. Another good idea is to use a Victron Battery Monitor http://shop.logenergy.com.au/products/victron-battery-monitor-bmv700 and Bluetooth Smart ongle http://shop.logenergy.com.au/products/victron-ve-direct-bluetooth-smart-dongle for monitoring the State of Charge of your batteries and the performance of your Off Grid Solar System.
