MOTORHOMES
Victron Energy equipment
An almost indispensable option for the off-road vehicles is the Victron Phoenix MultiPlus: a powerful true sine wave inverter. In
the event of generator power being disconnected, the inverter within the Multi is automatically activated and takes over the
supply to the connected loads. So even in the middle of nowhere the off-road vehicles are assured of a reliable power supply.
The inverter converts 12 Volt power to 240 Volt power, which can be used for appliances such as the air conditioner, microwave, washing machine, refrigeration compressor, etc. The higher Watt units provide even more ‘start up power’, which is
generally required by these appliances.

Equipment of Victron Energy
The on-board facilities and specifications demand quite a high amount of energy. During events the energy supply might be
very limited or even absent, particulary during events held in remote locations. ‘Because everything turns on comfort, we only
use materials of the highest specification’, Stephen says. That’s why they have chosen for a robust self-sufficient on-board energy
system from Victron Energy.
At the heart of the system a Quattro unit supplies 230 Volt and charges the batteries when mains power is available. When an
energy-shortage threatens, the system automatically switches on the generator. The system works on the ‘plug and play’ principle.

Ambulances
Paris, France: Power supply guaranteed for Paris ambulances
The company Petit Picot has installed MultiPlus 12/1600/70 in ambulances in the Parisian region. The MultiPlus provides a pure
sinusoidal 230 volt alternating current power supply for the different medical devices (incubators, monitors, defibrillators, etc.)
onboard. These important medical devices need to be operational at all times. The MultiPlus UPS function provides the ambulances a 230Vac permanent power supply. So an ambulance can function whether it is connected to the mains when idle or in
autonomous mode when driving.
With the MultiPlus onboard it has been possible to simplify wiring, compared with a separately installed inverter and charger,
with the consequent cost saving in the installation.

MultiPlus vs Quattro
The MultiPlus and Quattro
products play a central role in
both AC and DC systems. They
are both powerful battery
chargers and inverters in one
box.
The amount of available AC
sources is the deciding factor
when choosing between the
Quattro and the Multi.
The big difference is that
a Quattro can take two AC
sources, and switch between
them based on intelligent
rules. It has a built-in transferswitch. The MultiPlus can take
only one AC source.

3. Multi system
The Multiplus combines the charger and inverter functionality. This will result in easy installation and features like PowerControl and PowerAssist.

PowerAssist – boosting the capacity
of AC or generator power
This unique Victron feature allows the
MultiPlus to supplement the capacity
of the mains or generator power. Where
peak power is so often required only
for a limited period, the MultiPlus will
make sure that insufficient mains or
generator power is immediately
compensated with power from the
battery. When the load reduces, the
spare power is used to recharge the
battery bank.
It is therefore no longer necessary to
size a generator on the maximum peak
load. Use the most efficient size
generator instead.
Note: this feature is available in both
the MultiPlus and the Quattro.

Accessories
Our systems are comprised of various components. Some of which are specifically designed for automotive systems. Other
Victron components are applicable for a wide range of applications. You are able to find the specifications and other detailed
information about these components in the ‘Technical Information’ section.
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-togo 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 ex
change data with the Victron Global Remote. This includes sending alarms.
Victron Global Remote 2
Monitoring from a large distance is possible with the Victron Global
Remote. The Global Remote is a modem which sends text messages to
mobile phones. These messages contain information about the status of a
system as well as warnings and alarms. The Global Remote also logs
various types of data coming from Victron Battery Monitors, Multi’s,
Quattro’s and Inverters. Consequently this data is sent to a website via
a GPRS-connection. This enables you to access the read-outs remotely,
where en whenever you like.
Ethernet Remote
The Ethernet Remote is similar to the Global Remote. The difference is that
the Ethernet Remote has a LAN-connection. A special cable can be used to
connect the Ethernet Remote directly to an existing internet connection.
Digital Multi Control Panel GX
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 AC-side current. The setting
range is up to 200A.
Blue Power Panel
It can be difficult to maintain a clear overview of your system as it grows
larger. This is however not the case with a Blue Power Panel. Thanks to
its clear display and intuitive control it enables you to easily monitor and
control all devices connected to VE.Net and VE.Bus. Examples are Multi’s,
Quattro’s and the VE.Net Battery Controller, which keeps track of the status
of your battery bank.

Accessories
FILAX Transfer switch
Filax: the ultra fast transfer switch
The Filax has been designed to switch sensitive loads, such as computers or modern
entertainment equipment from one AC source to another. The priority source typically
is the mains, a generator or AC power. The alternate source typically is an inverter.
Transfer switches 5kVA and 10kVA
The Transfer Switch is an automatic switching device between two different
AC sources. Between generator and the grid, between an inverter and the
grid or between the generator and an inverter.
BatteryProtect (Models: BP-40i, BP-60i, BP-200i)
The BatteryProtect disconnects the battery from non-essential loads before it is
completely discharged (which would damage the battery) or before it has insufficient
power left to crank the engine.

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.
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.

DIP switches for Power Saving Mode (750VA model only)
When operating in Power Saving Mode, the no-load current is reduced to 1/3 of nominal. In this
mode the inverter is switched off in case of no load or very low load, and switches on every two
seconds for a short period. I f the output current exceeds a set level. The inverter will continue to
operate. If not, the inverter will shut down again. The on/off level can be set from 15W to 85W with
DIP switches.

difficult loads such as refrigeration compressors, electric motors and similar appliances.
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.
Phoenix Inverter
24/5000
To transfer the load to another AC source: the automatic transfer switch
If an automatic transfer switch is required we recommend using the MultiPlus inverter/charger instead. The
switch is included in these products and the charger function of the MultiPlus can be disabled. Computers and
other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption because the MultiPlus features a very
short switchover time (less than 20 milliseconds).
Computer interface
All models have a RS-485 port. All you need to connect to your PC is our MK2 interface (see under accessories).
This interface takes care of galvanic isolation between the inverter and the computer, and converts from RS-485
to RS-232. A RS-232 to USB conversion cable is also available. Together with our VEConfigure software, which
can be downloaded free of charge from our website, all parameters of the inverters can be customised. 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 computerised monitoring
and control systems.
New applications of high power inverters
The possibilities of paralleled high power inverters are truly amazing. For ideas, examples and battery capacity
calculations please refer to our book “Energy Unlimited” (available free of charge from Victron Energy and
downloadable from www.victronenergy.com).

Lithium Ion battery compatible
Multi-functional, 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.
Two AC Outputs
The main output has no-break functionality. The MultiPlus takes over the supply to the connected loads in the
event of a grid failure or when shore/generator power is disconnected. This happens so fast (less than
20 milliseconds) that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption.
The second output is live only when AC is available on one of the inputs of the MultiPlus. Loads that should not
discharge the battery, like a water heater for example, can be connected to this output (second output available
on models rated at 3kVA and more).
Virtually unlimited power thanks to parallel operation
Up to 6 Multi's can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output. Six 24/5000/120 units, for example, will
provide 25 kW / 30 kVA output power with 720 Amps charging capacity.
MultiPlus
24/3000/70
Three phase capability
In addition to parallel connection, three units of the same model can be configured for three-phase output. But
that’s not all: up to 6 sets of three units can be parallel connected for a huge 75 kW / 90 kVA inverter and more
than 2000 Amps charging capacity.
PowerControl - Dealing with limited generator, shore side or grid power
The MultiPlus is a very powerful battery charger. It will therefore draw a lot of current from the generator or
shore side supply (nearly 10A per 5kVA Multi at 230VAC). 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 being overloaded.
PowerAssist - Boosting the capacity of shore or generator power
This feature takes the principle of PowerControl to a further dimension. It allows the MultiPlus to supplement
the capacity of the alternative source. Where peak power is so often required only for a limited period, the
MultiPlus will make sure that insufficient shore or generator power is immediately compensated for by power
from the battery. When the load reduces, the spare power is used to recharge the battery.
MultiPlus Compact
12/2000/80
Four stage adaptive charger and dual bank battery charging
The main output provides a powerful charge to the battery system by means of advanced ‘adaptive charge’
software. The software fine-tunes the three stage automatic process to suit the condition of the battery, and
adds a fourth stage for long periods of float charging. The adaptive charge process is described in more detail
on the Phoenix Charger datasheet and on our website, under Technical Information. In addition to this, the
MultiPlus will charge a second battery using an independent trickle charge output intended for a main engine
or generator starter battery (trickle charge output available on 12V and 24V models only).
System configuring has never been easier
After installation, the MultiPlus is ready to go.
If settings have to be changed, this can be done in a matter of minutes with a new DIP switch setting procedure.
Even parallel and 3-phase operation can be programmed with DIP switches: no computer needed!
Alternatively, VE.Net can be used instead of the DIP switches.
And sophisticated software (VE.Bus Quick Configure and VE.Bus System Configurator) is available to configure
several new, advanced, features.

Adaptive 4-stage charge characteristic: bulk – absorption – float – storage
The Blue Power charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management. The ‘adaptive’
feature will automatically optimise the charging process relative to the way the battery is being used.
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage Mode
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the
storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for a 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion
of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery.
This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.

IP 20 12/15
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage Mode
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the
storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for a 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion
of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery.
This feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Totally silent
Models up to 12/15 and 24/8: no fan.
Models 12/25 and 24/12: small inaudible low rpm fan, temperature controlled.
Protected against overheating
Output current will reduce as temperature increases up to 60°C, but the Blue Power charger will not fail.

Phoenix Battery Charger
Phoenix battery charger 12/24V
www.victronenergy.com
Adaptive 4-stage charge characteristic: bulk – absorption – float – storage
The Phoenix charger features a microprocessor controlled ‘adaptive’ battery management system that can be
preset to suit different types of batteries. The ‘adaptive’ feature will automatically optimise the process relative
to the way the battery is being used.
The right amount of charge: variable absorption time
When only shallow discharges occur (a yacht connected to shore power for example) the absorption time is kept
short in order to prevent overcharging of the battery. After a deep discharge the absorption time is
automatically increased to make sure that the battery is completely recharged.
Phoenix charger
12V 30A
Preventing damage due to excessive gassing: the BatterySafe mode (see fig. 2 below)
If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high absorption voltage has
been chosen, the Phoenix charger will prevent damage due to excessive gassing by automatically limiting the
rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached (see the charge curve between 14,4 V and
15,0 V in fig. 2 below).
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage mode (see fig. 1 & 2 below)
The storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during 24 hours. In the
storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for 12 V battery) to minimise gassing and corrosion of
the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This
feature prevents stratification of the electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
To increase battery life: temperature compensation
Every Phoenix charger comes with a battery temperature sensor. When connected, charge voltage will
automatically decrease with increasing battery temperature. This feature is especially recommended for sealed
batteries and/or when important fluctuations of battery temperature are expected.
Battery voltage sense
In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, Phoenix chargers are provided with a voltage
sense facility so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage.
Universal 90-265V AC input voltage range and also suitable for DC supply (AC-DC and DC-DC operation)
The chargers will accept a 90-400V DC supply.
Phoenix charger
24V 25A
Computer interface
Every Phoenix Charger is ready to communicate with a computer through its RS-485 data port. Together with
our VEConfigure software, which can be downloaded free of charge from our website www.victronenergy.com

Use as a power supply
As a result of the perfectly stabilized output voltage, the Skylla-i can be used as a power supply if batteries
or large buffer capacitors are not available.
Two outputs to charge 2 battery banks
The Skylla-i features 2 isolated outputs. The second output, limited to approximately 4 A and with a slightly
lower output voltage, is intended to top up a starter battery.
Li-Ion (LiFePo4) ready
Simple charger on-off control can be implemented by connecting a relay or open collector optocoupler
output from a Li-Ion BMS to the remote control port of the charger. Alternatively complete control of
voltage and current can be achieved by connecting to the galvanically isolated CAN bus port.

BMV 600S Battery Monitor
Skylla-i Control
The BMV 600S Battery Monitor
features an advanced
microprocessor control system
combined with high resolution
measuring systems for battery
voltage and charge/discharge
current
The software includes complex
calculation algorithms, like Peukert’s
formula, to exactly determine the
state of charge of the battery. The
BMV 600S selectively displays
battery voltage, battery current,
consumed Ah or time to go.
The PCC panel provides remote control
and monitoring of the charge process
with LED indication of the charger
status. In addition, the remote panel
also offers output current adjustment
that can be used to limit the output
current and thus the power drawn from
the AC supply. This is particularly useful
when operating the charger from
limited shore power or small gensets.
The panel can also be used to change
several battery charging parameters.

Perfect chargers for any type of battery
Charge voltage can be precisely adjusted to suit any sealed or unsealed battery system.
In particular, sealed maintenance free batteries must be charged correctly in order to ensure a long service life.
Overvoltage will result in excessive gassing and venting of a sealed battery. The battery will dry out and fail.
Suitable for AC and DC supply (AC-DC and DC-DC operation)
Except for the 3 phase input models, the chargers also accept a DC supply.
Controlled charging
Every TG charger has a microprocessor, which accurately controls the charging in three steps. The charging
process takes place in accordance with the IUoUo characteristic and charges more rapidly than other processes.
Skylla TG 24 50
Use of TG chargers as a power supply
As a result of the perfectly stabilized output voltage, a TG charger can be used as a power supply if batteries or
large buffer capacitors are not available.
Two outputs to charge 2 battery banks (24V models only)
The TG chargers feature 2 isolated outputs. The second output, limited to approximately 4 A and with a slightly
lower output voltage, is intended to top up a starter battery.
To increase battery life: temperature compensation
Every Skylla TG charger comes with a battery temperature sensor. When connected, charge voltage will
automatically decrease with increasing battery temperature. This feature is especially recommended for sealed
batteries which otherwise might be overcharged and dry out due to venting.
Battery voltage sense
In order to compensate for voltage loss due to cable resistance, TG chargers are provided with a voltage sense
facility so that the battery always receives the correct charge voltage.

controlled by limiting the maximum output current,
thereby preventing the shore power fuse from
blowing.

Blue Power Panel
The Blue Power Panel provides intuitive control for all devices connected to the VE.Net network. It can be used
to view and configure the full range of settings on VE.Net devices. Furthermore, its fully customizable overview
screens make it the ideal monitoring tool for your power system.
The BPP now features an integrated VE.Net to VE.Bus Converter (VVC). This allows you to combine the powerful
control of the VE Configure software with the simple interface of the BPP, without requiring a computer or
additional interface devices.
Blue Power Panel GX
BPP2 and BPP GX
The Blue Power Panel 2 and the Blue Power Panel GX almost have the same features. The difference between
the two models is the design and the mounting of the panel. The body of the GX panel is made of plastic, which
makes the panel lighter and adds a modern look to the panel. An extra advantage of the GX panel is the easy
mounting: the included mounting frame allows the user to mount the panel from either front or back side. Due
to the mounting frame, the mounting holes will no longer be in sight.

Cyrix-i
12/24V 120A and 225A
Intelligent battery combiner
www.victronenergy.com
Intelligent battery monitoring to prevent unwanted switching
Some battery combiners (also called voltage controlled relay, or split charge relay) will disconnect a battery in case of a
short but high amperage load. A battery combiner also may fail to connect a large but discharged battery bank because
the DC voltage immediately drops below the disengage value once the batteries are connected.
The software of the Cyrix-i 12/24 does more than simply connect and disconnect based on battery voltage and with a
fixed time delay. The Cyrix-i 12/24 looks at the general trend (voltage increasing or decreasing) and reverses a previous
action only if the trend has reversed during a certain period of time. The time delay depends on the voltage deviation
from the trend.
(for Battery Combiners with multiple engage/disengage profiles, please see the Cyrix-i 200A-400A)
12/24V auto ranging
The Cyrix-i 12/24 automatically detects system voltage.
No voltage loss
Cyrix battery combiners are an excellent replacement for diode isolators. The main feature is that there is virtually no
voltage loss so that the output voltage of alternators or battery chargers does not need to be increased.
Cyrix-i 12/24-120
Prioritising the starter battery
In a typical setup the alternator is directly connected to the starter battery. The accessory battery, and possibly also a
bow thruster and other batteries are each connected to the starter battery with Cyrix battery combiners. When a Cyrix
senses that the starter battery has reached the connect voltage it will engage, to allow for parallel charging of the other
batteries.
Bidirectional voltage sensing and power supply from both batteries
The Cyrix senses the voltage of both connected batteries. It will therefore also engage if for example the accessory
battery is being charged by a battery charger.
The Cyrix-i 12/24 has a dual power supply. It will therefore also close if the voltage on one battery is too low to operate
the Cyrix.
In order to prevent unexpected operation during installation or when one battery has been disconnected, the Cyrix-i
12/24 will not close if the voltage on one of the two battery connections is lower than 2V (12V battery) or 4V (24V
battery).
Parallel connection in case of emergency (Start Assist)
The Cyrix can also be engaged with a push button (Cyrix remains engaged during 30 seconds) or a switch to connect
batteries in parallel manually.
This is especially useful in case of emergency when the starter battery is discharged or damaged.

2) The Cyrix will not connect if the voltage on one of the battery connections is less than 2V*. (to prevent unexpected switching during installation)
3) The Cyrix will always connect if the start assist is activated, as long as the voltage on one of the battery connections is sufficient to operate the Cyrix (approximately 10V*).

Obtaining system information wherever and whenever
Victron Global Remote 2: A GSM/GPRS modem
The Global Remote is a modem which sends alarms, warnings and system status reports to cellular phones via
text messages (SMS). It can also log data from Victron Battery Monitors, Multi’s, Quattro’s and Inverters to a
website through a GPRS connection. The usage of this website is free of charge.
Victron Ethernet Remote: A GSM/GPRS modem with Ethernet connection
The Ethernet Remote has the same functions as the Global Remote. An extra function of the Ethernet Remote is
that it can connect with LAN, due to a special cable. In this way, the Ethernet Remote can be connected to the
internet without a SIM-card.
Simple and easy to use
The idea is simple: you can use it to get SMS alarms from a Multi, a Battery System, or both. When monitoring
the usage of batteries, it can be extremely helpful to receive under and overvoltage alarms; whenever they
occur. For this purpose, the Global Remote is perfect. A prepaid SIM-card (for example) in combination with the
Global Remote is adequate for remotely monitoring your system.
Connections Global Remote
The Global Remote has two serial connections. The can be used to connect to a VE.Bus Multi/Quattro/Inverter
unit or system. This connection needs a MK2 which is supplied with the VGR. The other connection is to
connect a BMV-600S or BMV-602S Battery Monitor. To connect it to a BMV you will also need the connection kit
accessory which needs to be purchased separately. The Global Remote also has a connection for an optional
accessory, the VGR IO Extender.
Victron Global Remote 2
Connections Ethernet Remote
The Ethernet Remote has one serial connection. This can be used to connect to a VE.Bus Multi/Quattro/Inverter
unit or system, or a BMV Battery Monitor. To connect it to a BMV you will also need the connection kit
accessory which needs to be purchased separately.
Advanced usage: Monitoring historic data
Taking it one step further, an internet browser and -connection is all you need to view all of the data online.
You can simply create an account on the website and add your modem(s). Subsequently you can configure the
GPRS connection, which will enable you to monitor the historic data of several basic properties such as system
voltages, power levels and status information. All of this data is graphed. These graphs are available in daily,
weekly and monthly timeframes.

Precision monitoring
The essential function of a battery monitor is to calculate ampere-hours consumed and the state of
charge of a battery. Ampere-hours consumed is calculated by integrating the current flowing in or out of
the battery. In case of a constant current, this integration is equivalent to current multiplied by time. A
discharge current of 10A during 2 hours, for example, amounts to 20Ah consumed. All our battery
monitors are based on a powerful microprocessor, programmed with the algorithms needed for
precision monitoring.

ARGO Diode Battery Isolators
Argo diode battery isolators
www.victronenergy.com
Diode battery isolators allow simultaneous charging of two or more batteries from one alternator, without
connecting the batteries together. Discharging the accessory battery for example will not result in also
discharging the starter battery.
The Argo battery isolators feature a low voltage drop thanks to the use of Schottky diodes: at low current the
voltage drop is approximately 0,3 V and at the rated output approximately 0,45 V.
All models are fitted with a compensation diode that can be used to slightly increase the output voltage of the
alternator. This compensates for the voltage drop over the diodes in the isolator.
Argo Diode Isolator
120-2AC
Please see our book ‘Energy Unlimited’ or ask for specialist advice when installing a diode isolator. Simply
inserting the isolator in the cabling between the alternator and the batteries will slightly reduce charge voltage.
The result can be that batteries are not charged to the full 100% and age prematurely.
Alternator energize input
Some alternators need DC voltage on the B+ output to start charging. Obviously, DC will be present when the
alternator is directly connected to a battery. Inserting a Diode or FET splitter will however prevent any return
voltage/current from the batteries to the B+, and the alternator will not start.
The new “AC” diode isolators feature a special current limited energize input that will power the B+ when the
engine run/stop switch is closed.

ARGO FET Battery Isolators
Argo FET battery isolators
With alternator energize input
www.victronenergy.com
Similarly to diode battery isolators, FET isolators allow simultaneous charging of two or more
batteries from one alternator (or a single output battery charger), without connecting the batteries
together. Discharging the accessory battery for example will not result in also discharging the
starter battery.
In contrast with diode battery isolators, FET isolators have virtually no voltage loss. Voltage drop is
less than 0,02 Volt at low current and averages 0,1 Volt at higher currents.
Argo FET 100-3
3bat 100A
When using ARGO FET Battery Isolators, there is no need to also increase the output voltage of the
alternator. Care should taken however to keep cable lengths short and of sufficient cross section.
Example:
When a current of 100 A flows through a cable of 50 mm2 cross section (AWG 0) and 10 m length
(30 ft), the voltage drop over the cable will be 0,26 Volt. Similarly a current of 50 A through a cable
of 10 mm2 cross section (AWG 7) and 5 m length (15 ft) will result in a voltage drop of 0,35 Volt!
Alternator energize input
Some alternators need DC voltage on the B+ output to start charging. Obviously, DC will be present
when the alternator is directly connected to a battery. Inserting a Diode or FET splitter will however
prevent any return voltage/current from the batteries to the B+, and the alternator will not start.
The new Argofet isolators have a special current limited energize input that will power the B+ when
the engine run/stop switch is closed.

Ultra fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra fast MPPT
controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up
to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.
BatteryLife: intelligent battery management
When a solar charge controller is not able to recharge the battery to its full capacity within one day,
the result is often that the battery will be continually be cycled between a “partially charged” state
and the “end of discharge” state. This mode of operation (no regular full recharge) will destroy a leadacid battery within weeks or months.
The BatteryLife algorithm will monitor the state of charge of the battery and day by day slightly
increase the load disconnect level until absorption voltage is reached. From that point onwards the
load disconnect level will be modulated so that absorption voltage is reached about once every
week.
The MPPT 70/15 can also be set to follow the traditional load control mode with a fixed disconnect
voltage
The load output is short circuit proof and can supply capacitive loads such as an inverter

Charge current up to 70 A and PV voltage up to 150 V
The BlueSolar 150/70-MPPT charge controller is able to charge a lower nominal-voltage battery from
a higher nominal voltage PV array.
The controller will automatically adjust to a 12, 24, 36, or 48 V nominal battery voltage.
Ultra fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra fast MPPT
controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up
to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.
Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions
If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power points may be present on the power-voltage
curve.
Conventional MPPT’s tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP.
The innovative BlueSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the optimum
MPP.

Gel and AGM Batteries
GEL and AGM batteries
www.victronenergy.com
1. VRLA technology
VRLA stands for Valve Regulated Lead Acid, which means the batteries are sealed. Gas will escape through the safety valves only
in case of overcharging or cell failure.
VRLA batteries are maintenance free for life.
2. Sealed (VRLA) AGM batteries
AGM stands for Absorbent Glass Mat. In these batteries the electrolyte is absorbed into a glass-fibre mat between the plates by
capillary action. As explained in our book ‘Energy Unlimited’, AGM batteries are more suitable for short-time delivery of very
high currents (engine starting) than gel batteries.
3. Sealed (VRLA) Gel batteries
Here the electrolyte is immobilized as gel. Gel batteries in
general have a longer service life and better cycle capacity than AGM batteries.
4. Low Self-discharge
Because of the use of lead calcium grids and high purity materials, Victron VRLA batteries can be stored during long periods of
time without recharge. The rate of self-discharge is less than 2% per month at 20°C. The self discharge doubles for every increase
in temperature with 10°C.
Victron VRLA batteries can therefore be stored during up to a year without recharging, if kept under cool conditions.
5. Exceptional Deep Discharge Recovery
Victron VRLA batteries have exceptional discharge recovery, even after deep or prolonged discharge.
It should however be stressed that repetitive deep discharge and prolonged discharge have a very negative influence on the
service life of all lead acid batteries, Victron batteries are no exception.
6. Battery discharging characteristics
The rated capacity of Victron AGM and Gel Deep Cycle batteries refers to 20 hour discharge, in other words: a discharge current
of 0,05 C.
The rated capacity of Victron Tubular Plate Long Life batteries refers to 10 hours discharge.
The effective capacity decreases with increasing discharge current (see table 1). Please note that the capacity reduction will be
even faster in case of a constant power load, such as an inverter.

Table 1: Effective capacity as a function of discharge time
(the lowest row gives the maximum allowable 5 seconds discharge current)
Our AGM deep cycle batteries have excellent high current performance and are therefore recommended for high current
applications such as engine starting. Due to their construction, Gel batteries have a lower effective capacity at high discharge
currents. On the other hand, Gel batteries have a longer service life, both under float and cycling conditions.
7. Effect of temperature on service life
High temperature has a very negative effect on service life. The service life of Victron batteries as a function of temperature is
shown in table 2.

During the absorption phase the charge voltage is kept at a relatively high level in order to fully recharge the battery within
reasonable time. The third and last phase is the float phase: the voltage is lowered to standby level, sufficient to compensa

self discharge.

gel and AGM batteries
www.victronenergy.com
Disadvantages of the traditional 3-step charge curve:
•
During the bulk phase the current is kept at a constant and often high level, even after the gassing voltage (14,34 V
for a 12 V battery) has been exceeded. This can lead to excessive gas pressure in the battery. Some gas will escape
trough the safety valves, reducing service life.
•
Thereafter the absorption voltage is applied during a fixed period of time, irrespective of how deep the battery has
been discharged previously. A full absorption period after a shallow discharge will overcharge the battery, again
reducing service life. (a. o. due to accelerated corrosion of the positive plates)
•
Research has shown that battery life can be increased by decreasing float voltage to an even lower level when the
battery is not in use.
11. Battery charging: longer battery life with Victron 4-step adaptive charging
Victron developed the adaptive charge curve. The 4-step adaptive chare curve is the result of years of research and testing.
The Victron four-step adaptive charge curve solves the 3 main problems of the 3 step curve:
•
Battery Safe mode
In order to prevent excessive gassing, Victron has invented the ‘Battery Safe Mode’. The battery Safe Mode will limit
the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached. Research has shown that this will reduce
internal gassing to a safe level.
•
Variable absorption time
Based on the duration of the bulk stage, the charger calculates how long the absorption time should be in order to
fully charge the battery. If the bulk time is short, this means the battery was already charged and the resulting
absorption time will also be short, whereas a longer bulk time will also result in a longer absorption time.
•
Storage mode
After completion of the absorption period the battery should be fully charged, and the voltage is lowered to the
float or standby level. If no discharge occurs during the next 24 hours, the voltage is reduced even further and the
battery goes into storage mode. The lower storage voltage reduces corrosion of the positive plates.
Once every week the charge voltage is increased to the absorption level for a short period to compensate for self
discharge (Battery Refresh mode).
12. Battery charging in case of standby use: constant voltage float charging
When a battery is not frequently deeply discharged, a 2-step charge curve can be used. During the first phase the battery is
charged with a limited current (the bulk phase). Once a preset voltage has been reached the battery is kept at that voltage (the
float phase).
This charge method is used for starter batteries in vehicles, and in uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).

14. Effect of temperature on charging voltage
The charge voltage should be reduced with increased temperature. Temperature compensation is required when the
temperature of the battery is expected to be less than 10°C / 50°F or more than 30°C / 85°F during long periods of time.
The recommended temperature compensation for Victron VRLA batteries is -4 mV / Cell (-24 mV /°C for a 12 V battery).
The centre point for temperature compensation is 20°C / 70°F.
15. Charge current
The charge current should preferably not exceed 0,2 C (20 A for a 100 Ah battery).The temperature of a battery will increase by
more than 10°C if the charge current exceeds 0,2 C. Therefore temperature compensation is required if the charge current
exceeds 0,2 C.

MultiPlus principle
INVERTER/CHARGER SYSTEM WITH INTELLIGENT SHORE AND GENERATOR POWER MANAGEMENT
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.
Power control ©
Battery charger reduces its output, if required, to avoid overload of supply when system consumption is
high.
multi 12/3000
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 is
even a special feature to enable the MultiPlus/Quattro to work perfectly with portable generators.

exceeds supply.
