INTRODUCTION
The Victron range of Inverter/Chargers provide advanced solutions to ensure that Newton Pumping Systems
continue pumping during power interruption by inverting 12V DC power from a battery (or multiple batteries) to
clean and efficient 230V power.
The MultiPlus Compact is a powerful pure sine wave inverter, a sophisticated battery charger that features adaptive
charge technology and a high-speed AC transfer switch in a single compact enclosure.
Below is a typical setup as part of a Newton System 500 waterproofing system which can be used as a quick install
schematic. If a control panel is not used the pumps will be automatic versions and each pump will have just one
cable coming up from the conduit. Connect pump 1 directly to the mains and pump 2 to the MultiPlus Compact.

CONNECTION OF THE AC CABLING
This is a Safety Class I product (supplied with a protective grounding terminal). Uninterrupted protective grounding
must be provided at the AC input and/or output terminals and/or chassis grounding point located externally on the
product.
The MultiPlus Compact is provided with a ground relay that automatically connects the Neutral output to the chassis
if no external AC supply is available. If an external AC supply is provided, the ground relay H will open before the input
safety relay closes. This ensures the correct operation of an earth leakage circuit breaker that is connected to the output.
An uninterrupted grounding can also be secured by means of the grounding wire of the AC input. Otherwise the casing
must be grounded.
The mains input & output terminal connector can be found on the bottom of the MultiPlus Compact. The mains
cable must be connected to the connector with a three-wire cable. Use correctly rated cable.
Procedure
Proceed as follows to connect the AC cables:
The AC output cable is connected directly to the male-connector, (the connector pulls out). The terminal points
are indicated clearly. From left to right: “N” (neutral), earth, and “L1” (phase).
The AC input is connected directly to the female-connector, (the connector pulls out). The terminal points are
indicated clearly. From left to right: “L1” (phase), earth, and “N” (neutral).
Push the “input” connector into the AC-in connector (near to rear-side).
Push the “output” connector into the AC-out connector (near to front-side).

OPERATION
On/Off/Charger Only Switch
For all operation as a battery back up system the switch should be in the “on”, position meaning the product is
fully functional - powering the pumps with through power during times of normal power supply, inverter power
during power outage. When mains power is not interrupted, the unit will charge the batteries also.
Charge States (see LED Indications on page 10 also)
• Bulk - Heavy and fast charge for batteries that are very or fully depleted
• Absorption - Final top up charge at a lower charge rate than Bulk
• Float - Trickle charge for when batteries are fully charged to replace charge that is lost over time. This
ensures that the batteries are always fully charged.
If the voltage at the “AC-in” terminal is not within specifications, during a power outage, for example, the
inverter will switch on.
