Product Information

The new 250VA Victron Phoenix Inverter is an upgrade to the previous 180VA inverter. As standard, it now includes a number of additional features, such as teh VE.Direct port, making it far easier to communicate with the inverter.

VE.Direct communication port

The VE.Direct port can be connected to:

  • A computer (VE.Direct to USB interface cable needed)
  • Apple and Android smartphones, tablets, macbooks and other devices (VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle needed)

Fully configurable

  • Low battery voltage alarm trip and reset levels
  • Low battery voltage cut-off and restart levels
  • Output voltage 210 - 245V
  • Frequency 50 Hz or 60 Hz
  • ECO mode on/off and ECO mode sense level

Monitoring

In-and output voltage and current alarms

Proven reliability

The full bridge plus toroidal transformer topology has proven its reliability over many years. The inverters are short circuit proof and protected against overheating, whether due to overload or high ambient temperature.

High start-up power

Needed to start loads such as power converters for LED lamps, halogen lamps or electric tools.

ECO mode

When in ECO mode, the inverter will switch to standby when the load decreases below a preset value. Once in standby the inverter will switch on for a short period (adjustable, default: every 2,5 seconds). If the load exceeds a preset level, the inverter will remain on.

Remote on/off

A remote on/off switch can be connected to a two pole connector, or between battery plus and the left hand contact of the two pole connector.

LED diagnosis

Please see manual for a description.

Automatic transfer switch

For our low power inverters we recommend our Filax Automatic Transfer Switch. The Filax features a very short switchover time (less than 20 milliseconds) so that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption.
