Victron MultiPlus 12/500/20-16 230V VE.Bus

**12V DC / 500VA / 20A charge/ 230V AC**

Multifunctional, with intelligent power management:  The MultiPlus is a powerful true sine wave inverter, a sophisticated battery charger that features adaptive charge technology, and a high-speed AC transfer switch in a single compact enclosure.  Next to these primary functions, the MultiPlus has several advanced features, as outlined below.

Parallel operation and three-phase capability:  Up to six Multis can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output.  In addition to parallel connection, three units can be configured for three-phase output.

PowerControl Dealing with limited generator, shore side or grid power:  With the Multi Control Panel, a maximum generator or shore current can be set.  The MultiPlus will then take account of other AC loads and use whatever is extra for charging, thus preventing the generator or shore supply from overloading.

PowerAssist: Boosting the capacity of shore or generator power This feature takes the principle of PowerControl to a further dimension.  It allows MultiPlus to supplement the capacity of the alternative source.  Where peak power is required for a short period, the MultiPlus will ensure that insufficient shore or generator power is immediately compensated for by power from the battery.  When the load reduces, the spare capacity is used to recharge the battery.

Four-stage adaptive charger and dual bank battery charging:  The main output provides a powerful charge to the battery system using advanced "adaptive charge" software.  The software finetunes the three-stage automatic process to suit the battery's condition and adds a fourth stage for long periods of float charging.  In addition, the MultiPlus will charge a second battery using an independent trickle charge output intended for a main engine or generator starter battery.

High startup power: Needed to start high inrush loads such as power converters for LED lamps, halogen lamps or electric tools.

Search Mode: When Search Mode is enabled, the power consumption of the inverter in no-load operation is decreased by approx. 70%.  In this mode, when operating in inverter mode, the Multi is switched off in case of no load or very low load and switches on every two seconds for a short period.  If the output current exceeds a set level, the inverter will continue to operate.  If not, the inverter will shut down again.

MultiPlus 500 / 800 / 1200 / 1600 VA programmable relay:  By default, the programmable relay is set as an alarm relay, i.e. the relay will de-energise in the event of an alarm or a pre-alarm (inverter almost too hot, ripple on the input almost too high, battery voltage almost too low).

Remote on/off/charger on:  Three pole connector

Onsite system configuring, monitoring and control: The MultiPlus is ready to go after installation.  Some settings can be changed with DIP switches.

  • 500/800/1200VA models: Remote switch/battery charge voltage/inverter frequency/search mode.
  • 1600/2000VA models:  battery charge voltage/search mode.
  • For more settings, use VE-Config or the VE.Bus Smart dongle.

Remote configuring and monitoring:  Install a Cerbo GX or other GX product to connect to the internet.  Operational data can be stored and displayed on our VRM (Victron Remote Management) website free of charge.  When connected to the internet, systems can be accessed remotely, and settings can be changed.
