Victron Energy

With over 39 years of experience, Victron Energy enjoys an unrivalled reputation for technical innovation, reliability and quality.

 

Victron is a world leader in the supply of self-supporting electrical power. Our products have been designed to meet the most demanding situations faced by a diversity of craft, recreational and commercial alike. Victron’s ability to meet the demand for customized off-grid systems is unprecedented. Our product range includes sine wave inverters and inverter/chargers, battery chargers, DC/DC converters, transfer switches, gel and AGM batteries, alternators, battery monitors, solar charge regulators, solar panels, complete network solutions and many other innovative solutions.

 

Products:

Inverter/Charger

 

MultiPlus Inverter/Charger

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. The Multiplus combines the charger and inverter functionality. This will result in easy installation and features like Power-Control and PowerAssist.

 

 

 

 


 

Digital Multi Control Panel
With this panel you are able to remotely monitor and control Multiplus and Quattro systems. A simple turn of the button can limit the power supply of for example a generator and/or shore-side current. The setting range is up to 200A.

 

 

 


 

Battery Monitor
Key tasks of the Victron Battery Monitor are measuring charge and discharge currents as well as calculating the state-of-charge and time-to-go of a battery. An alarm is sent when certain limits are exceeded (such as an excessive discharge). It is also possible for the battery monitor to exchange data with the Victron Global Remote. This includes sending alarms.

 

 

 

Gel, AGM and Lithium-ion Batteries

VRLA AGM: design life 7-10 years
VRLA GEL: design life 12 years
VRLA GEL 2 Volt cells: design life 20 years

The AGM range has very low internal resistance making them particularly suitable for high current discharge applications such as for inverters, thrusters and winches as well as engine starting.

The GEL model range offer best deep cycle durability and overall longer life. The use of high purity materials and lead calcium grids ensure that for both AGM and GEL products have particulary low self discharge so that they will not go flat during long periods without charge. Both ranges are supplied with M8 drilled, flat copper terminals ensuring best possible connection contact and eliminating the need for battery terminals. The batteries are compliant with both CE and UL specifications in ABS fireproof containers and come with Victron's 2 year world-wide warranty.

The market for battery systems is developing rapidly. There is a growing demand for efficient batteries with a large energy density. Victron Energy has a suitable response for this demand: the Victron Lithium-ion battery system. This is comprised of a very modern battery with an advanced control- and security system; the so-called Battery Management System (BMS). The BMS controls the charging and discharging, immediately takes action when certain (critical) values are exceeded and safeguards an efficient energy-transfer.

 

Application:

PowerControl: Dealing with limited generator or grid power All models in the MultiPlus range feature powerful battery chargers. When the largest model is working hard it can draw almost 10A from a 230V supply. Using the remote panel it is possible to ‘dial-in’ the maximum current that is available from mains or generator. The MultiPlus will then automatically regulate the charger taking account of other system AC loads and ensuring the charger only uses what is spare. This way it is possible to avoid tripping the mains power or overloading the generator.

 

PowerAssist: Boosting the power available from mains or generator, an innovative feature of Multiplus. The feature that most distinguishes the MultiPlus from other inverter / chargers is PowerAssist. This feature takes the principle of PowerControl to a further dimension by allowing a MultiPlus to supplement the power available from mains or generator to ‘assist’ during periods of high demand. Peak power demand is almost always sustained only for short periods, either a few minutes (in the case of items like cooking appliances) or just a few seconds (in the case of the burst of energy needed to start an air-conditioning or refrigeration compressor).
With the capacity of the generator or mains power set on the remote panel, the MultiPlus detects when the load is becoming too much for the supply and will instantly provide the extra power required. When the demand has reduced, the unit returns to charging the battery. This feature is equally effective in large and small systems helping to reduce the required generator capacity or to achieve greater things with limited mains power. There iseven a special feature to enable the MultiPlus/Quattro to work perfectly with portable generators.
