1.3 Connection to the battery
The Ph 12/300 and Ph 24/350 are equipped with two 4 mm² wires with
a length of 1.5 meters. The Ph 12/600 and Ph 24/800 are equipped with
two 10 mm² wires with the same length. If it is unavoidable to extend
these wires, use a wire gauge of at least 1.5 times larger than the ones
supplied with the inverter. Maximum recommended battery wire length
is approx. 3 meters.
1.3.1 General precautions when working with batteries
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Working in vicinity of a lead acid battery is dangerous. Batteries
can generate explosive gases during operation. Never smoke or
allow a spark or flame in the vicinity of a battery. Provide sufficient
ventilation around the battery.
Wear eye and clothing protection. Avoid touching eyes while
working near batteries. Wash your hands when done.
If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with
soap and water. If acid enters eye, immediately flood eye with
running cold water for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention
immediately.
Be careful when using metal tools in vicinity of batteries. Dropping
a metal tool onto a battery might cause a short-circuit battery and,
possibly an explosion.
Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces,
and watches when working with a battery. A battery can produce a
short-circuit current high enough to melt a ring or the like to metal,
causing severe burns.
CAUTION
8
THE RED WIRE MUST BE CONNECTED
TO THE POSITIVE (+) TERMINAL AND
THE BLACK WIRE TO THE NEGATIVE
(-) TERMINAL OF THE BATTERY.
Reverse polarity connection of the battery
wires can damage the inverter!
Damage caused by reversed polarity is not
covered by the warranty. Make sure the power
switch is in the OFF ‘0’ position before
connecting the battery.
manual
victron energy
WARNING
IF THE INVERTER IS CONNECTED TO
THE INCORRECT POLARITY, THE
FUSE WILL BLOW.
To replace the fuse in the Ph 12/300 or Ph
24/350, make sure you disconnect the battery
first. Replace the fuse only with the correct
type (Littelfuse, or equivalent, 40 A for 12V
version and 25 A for 24V version, automotive
type). After the fuse is replaced you can
reconnect the battery again, but this time with
the correct polarity applied (RED TO ‘+’
AND BLACK TO ‘-‘).
If the fuse blows again, even with the correct
polarity applied, the inverter is damaged and
must be returned for service.
THE Ph 12/600 AND Ph 24/800 MODELS
ARE EQUIPPED WITH AN INTERNAL
FUSE WHICH CAN BE REPLACED
ONLY BY SPECIALLY TRAINED
SERVICE PERSONNEL.
CAUTION
DO NOT USE THE Ph 12/300 AND Ph
24/350 INVERTERS WITH ELECTRICAL
SYSTEMS USING POSITIVE GROUND.
These inverters are designed for use with
negative ground electrical systems. The
inverter’s case is connected to the protective
earth conductor of the AC outlet and to the
negative wire of the DC input.
The Ph 12/600 and Ph 24/800 models have an
earthed case which is not directly connected to
any DC input wire

1.4 Connecting the load
Before you connect your appliance(s) to the inverter, always check it’s
maximum power consumption. Do not connect appliances to the
inverter needing more than the nominal power rating of the inverter
continuously. Some appliances like motors or pumps, draw large inrush
currents in a start-up situation. In such circumstances, it is possible that
the start-up current exceeds the overcurrent trip level of the inverter. In
this case the output voltage will quickly decrease to limit the output
current of the inverter. If the overcurrent trip level is continuously
exceeded, the inverter will shut down and restart within 18 seconds. In
this case it is advisable to disconnect the appliance from the inverter,
since it requires too much power to be driven by this inverter. Note that
at higher ambient temperature levels, the overload capacity of the
inverter is reduced.
Besides indicating the type of error, the red LED on the Ph 12/600 and
Ph 24/800 inverters also functions as an overload indicator. When heavy
loads are switched on, this LED will shortly light due to the inrush
current of the load. If the ERROR/OVERLOAD LED stays on for 6
seconds, the inverter will shut down and switches to the overload error
mode (see chapter 3.1)
WARNING
WHEN CONNECTING MORE THAN
ONE APPLIANCE TO THE INVERTER,
IN COMBINATION WITH A
COMPUTER, NOTE THAT IF ONE OF
THE APPLIANCES DRAWS A HIGH
START CURRENT, IT CAN CAUSE
YOUR COMPUTER TO REBOOT DUE
TO A SUDDEN VOLTAGE DROP.
NEVER CONNECT THE INVERTER’S
OUTPUT TO THE AC DISTRIBUTION
GRID, SUCH AS YOUR HOUSEHOLD AC
WALL OUTLET. IT WILL DAMAGE
THE INVERTER.
CAUTION

1.5 Turning the inverter on
When all the above requirements are checked and satisfied and all
connections are made, it’s time to turn on your Phoenix inverter by
pushing the power switch to the ‘ I ’ position. After a short beep,
indicating that all internal circuits are checked, the sinewave shaped
output voltage gently rises until 230V/50Hz ± 2% is reached.
When the inverter is not supplying power to an appliance for a longer
time, it’s recommended to turn off the inverter to save your batteries
since it still draws a small amount of current in a ‘no load’ condition.
With the Ph 12/600 and Ph 24/800 models you have the possibility to
use the build in “economy” mode as is detailed in the next chapter.
WARNING
WARNING
victron energy
IF THE INVERTER SWITCHES TO AN
‘ERROR MODE’ (SEE CHAPTER 3.1)
DUE TO AN OVERLOAD OR SHORT
CIRCUIT, THE INVERTER WILL
AUTOMATICALLY RESTART AFTER
ABOUT 18 SECONDS.
In case of an over-temperature error, the
inverter will automatically restart after it has
reached an acceptable temperature. Just before
the inverter restarts, it will warn you with a
short beep.
NEVER TOUCH THE AC
CONNECTIONS WHEN THE INVERTER
IS STILL RUNNING IN AN ERROR
MODE!
THE BUILT IN LARGE ELECTROLYTIC
CAPACITORS CAN HOLD SIGNIFICANT

ARE DISCONNECTED.
To avoid sparks or short inverter operation, it is
advisable to switch on the inverter for 10
seconds after battery disconnection, before you
transport the inverter.

1.6 Using “economy” mode on the Ph 12/600 and Ph 24/800
To reduce it’s own power consumption (with 80..90%) when no load is
powered at the output, the 600VA and 800VA inverters are equipped
with a sophisticated Load Detection System. This system detects
whether or not power is needed from the AC output. The amount of
power that needs to be detected in order to jump to economby mode, is
adjustable from 3 to 30W with the ‘load sense level’ potentiometer on
the front panel.
The Ph 12/600 and Ph 24/800 models can operate in two modes, the
continuous mode and the economy mode. When the ‘load sense level’
potmeter is fully turned counter clockwise, the inverter operates in the
continuous mode (blue AC-present LED is continuously on) even when
there is no load connected. In this mode there is always an output
voltage present, which causes the inverter to draw more power from the
batteries.
To set up the economy mode, turn the ‘load sense level’ potmeter
clockwise until the blue LED starts to flash. After about 5 seconds the
flashing stops and the inverter operates in the economy mode. This
means that once per second a narrow pulse of 230V is generated at the
output to check whether there’s a load applied. Every time this 230V
pulse is generated the blue LED is activated too, in order to indicate that
there’s a lethal AC voltage present at the output. When a load exceeding
the adjusted load sense level is connected, the inverter switches to the
continuous mode immediately, delivering power to the load. When the
load is disconnected (or switched off) the blue LED starts flashing for 5
seconds and the inverter switches back to the economy mode.
Note that some loads like TV/video equipment (with standby mode) and
alarm clocks need continuous power so that the standby mode can not
be used.
With some small non compensated loads it is possible that the inverter
switches from continuous mode to economy mode and vice versa all the
time. In this case you have to connect an additional load to the AC
output. The adjusted load sense level can slightly change with DC input
voltage and temperature.

2. TROUBLESHOOTING
2.1 The flash sequence table
Your Phoenix inverter is equipped with a self-diagnosis system, to
inform you about the cause of inverter shut down. To make this visible
the error/power LED (Ph 12/300 and Ph 24/350 models) or red
error/overload LED (Ph 12/600 and Ph 24/800 models) on the front
panel of the inverter, can flash in four different sequences. The duration,
or time period, of this sequence is about 1 second. During this time
period the red LED can flash four times in a row at most. The number
of flashes in this time period indicates the cause of inverter shut down.
In the table below you can find out what kind of flashing sequence
belongs to which error.

2.2 Acoustic messages
The inverter is equipped with an acoustic alarm.
There are three kinds of acoustic messages depending on the possible
cause of inverter shutdown. These messages are related to the red LED
flashing sequences mentioned previously.
Message 1: One beep per second. The battery voltage has reached too
low or too high a level.
Message 2: Two beeps per second. The inverter will shut down soon
due to an overloaded output. Note that with very heavy
overloads the alarm will not sound due to fast inverter shut
down.
Message 3: Three beeps per second. The inverter will shut down
when its temperature has risen another three degrees
Celsius.

Possible cause :
Remedy :
Poor battery condition.
Poor connection or inadequate
wiring between battery and
inverter, resulting in too much
voltage drop.
Replace battery or charge it first.
When extending the battery wires
of the inverter make sure you use
the correct wire gauge (≥ 1.5 times
larger than the fixed battery wires).
It’s not advisable to extend the
battery wires to more than 3
meters.
Check your electrical system or
consult an electrical engineer to
check it for you.
General failure in your electrical
system (in case of no direct
battery connection).
PROBLEM : ‘Overloaded or shorted output’ error keeps on
appearing
Possible cause :
Inverter is overloaded.
Connected equipment features a
bad power factor (cosϕ at
sinusoidal currents).
Connected equipment causes a
short circuit at the inverter’s
output.
victron energy
Remedy :
Make sure that the total power
rating of the connected equipment
is lower than the nominal inverter
power rating.
Reduce the required power
consumption of the load. Please
note that, for example, a computer
load features a bad power factor,
which causes a reduction of the
maximum output power of the
inverter by approx. 20%.
Make sure that the connected
equipment is not broken or
malfunctioning. Check if the AC
power cord between the inverter
and the connected equipment is
OK. Any physical damage on the
power cord can produce a short
circuit. Be careful in these
situations!.

4. BATTERY CAPACITY
4.1 Calculation of the minimum required battery capacity
If the power ratings of the equipment to be powered by the Phoenix
inverter and the duration that the inverter is expected to power the
equipment are known, the minimum battery capacity can be calculated.
Make a list of all equipment to be powered by the Phoenix inverter and
sum up each single power consumption multiplied by the duration of time
in hours, during which power will be consumed (Watt-hours). Add the
internal loss of the Phoenix inverter.
The calculation on the internal loss is a two step process. First we
calculate the loss when the inverter is supplying power to a load. The
efficiency of the inverter in this state is 85%, adding roughly 15% to the
power consumption. When the inverter is not supplying power to a load,
power consumption is approximately 4,5 W.
Determine the number of Ah by dividing the power consumption by the
nominal battery voltage (for example 24 VDC). The result is the total
battery capacity-consumption in Ah's. Multiply this value with a safety
factor of 1,7 and the result is the recommended minimum battery
capacity.
