The Victron MultiPlus 2000 is a lot more than a simple inverter. The MultiPlus is at the heart of your power system, making your installation much neater and simpler. Power Control Function HVD – high voltage disconnect. The high-voltage disconnect feature protects against dangerous overvoltages when charging the battery through an alternative charger or the vehicle’s alternator. In such an overvoltage condition, the Multiplus automatically shuts down its output and alarms to indicate that the Multiplus has disconnected from the grid. The Multiplus will automatically reconnect once the battery voltage has dropped below a preset level.

The Victron MultiPlus is a lot more than a simple inverter.

It’s a combined inverter and charger in one elegant package. It’s a high-performance battery charger, inverter and DC/AC power supply that provides reliable and efficient power for all your electrical equipment, such as computers, lighting systems or tools when travelling off the grid or at home. It also has an optional solar charge controller, so you can use renewable energy sources, including solar panels, to help power up your batteries.

It is an elegantly designed box that combines an inverter and a charger.

The MultiPlus is at the heart of your power system, making your installation much neater and simpler. As such, it can be used as either an inverter or a charger, depending on what you need at that moment.

victron multiplus 3000The MultiPlus offers many advantages over other units:

  • It has two independent AC outputs (one 240VAC & one 120VAC), which allows the use of multiple devices simultaneously with no loss of power quality;
  • All Victron 5000w inverter output voltages are adjustable from 0-20% load;
  • The voltage range for each group ranges from 97V to 177/182 VDC;
  • The innovative battery sense feature allows for intelligently monitoring battery voltage without requiring any additional hardware;

The MultiPlus is at the heart of your power system, making your installation. 

There’s no need for a separate inverter and charger, separate cables, mounting or fuses. You can connect the MultiPlus to your solar panels and batteries (in parallel) with no complex wiring or additional equipment.

Power Control Function

The Power Control Function is a significant one for any inverter. It ensures that your batteries are not overcharged or over-discharged, which can damage the battery and even cause a possible explosion.

The Power Control Function consists of High Voltage Disconnect (HVD) and Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD). HVD prevents overcharging of the battery by disconnecting power once a preset voltage has been reached. In contrast, LVD prevents undercharging of the battery by disconnecting it once a preset voltage is reached. Both these voltages are programmable via the display panel on top of your Victron Multiplus 2000 & Victron multiplus 3000-watt Inverter Charger Controller.

HVD – high voltage disconnect

The HVD is an integral feature of the Multiplus that protects against dangerous overvoltages. In such an overvoltage condition, the Multiplus automatically shuts down its output and alarms to indicate that it has disconnected from the grid.

This high-voltage disconnect feature protects against dangerous overvoltages when charging the battery through an alternative charger or the vehicle’s alternator.

The Multiplus will automatically reconnect once the battery voltage has dropped below a preset level.

When the Multiplus detects a low battery state, it automatically disconnects from the battery bank and turns off any connected loads. Once all loads are shut down, power is applied to an internal relay that holds current flowing through a diode while applying a voltage to an output contactor coil. This allows power to be restored as soon as possible but keeps live wires isolated from hot or grounded surfaces until conditions have been met for safe operation (i.e., charging is complete).

Automatic and programmable load disconnect (Low Voltage Disconnect)

The automatic and programmable load disconnect (Low Voltage Disconnect) function ensures that your batteries are not damaged if the voltage drops too low. The inverter automatically and programmable disconnects all loads when the battery voltage falls below a preset level. Load reconnection is automatic when the battery voltage rises above another predefined level. This ensures that your batteries do not discharge below a safe level and are protected from damage.

LVD – low voltage disconnect

The LVD (low voltage disconnect) is a safety device that protects your batteries from being discharged too deeply.

The function of the LVD is to disconnect the load from the battery when the battery voltage drops below a preset level. Once disconnected, it will not reconnect until your system has recovered and stabilized at a safe level. Once reconnected, it will monitor and control the power delivery to prevent any damage from accidental inverter overloads.

The inverter/charger will automatically reconnect its outputs once the battery has reached a safe state again.

Victron 2000-watt inverter charger works great for all kinds of applications.

Whether you’re using your Victron MultiPlus as a pure inverter or an inverter/charger, it works great for all applications. The MultiPlus can power almost anything from home appliances to tools and computers. It’s even powerful enough to run multiple high-demand devices at once!

This inverter can easily power the following devices:

  • Lights
  • Refrigerators and freezers
  • TV sets and stereo systems (in standby mode only)

Conclusion

The Multiplus is an excellent solution for all kinds of applications. It can be used in boats and caravans but on board larger vessels or boats with a large battery bank. The MultiPlus is also perfect for off-grid use, as it can handle all energy sources from solar panels, wind turbines and even diesel generators.
