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 (min load: 15W). 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.

To transfer the load to another AC source: the 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.

Inverters allow you to power domestic equipment – requiring 230V/120V AC – using ‘leisure’ or ‘automotive’ batteries rated at 12V, 24V or 48V DC.

Phoenix 12/500 230V inverter

The unit probably deserves a 5 star because of quality and reliability but it took me by surprize on how inefficient it is at low current. Make sure you understand the efficiency curve to by a charger that can keep up with the charging side. I will by one again because I trust Victron products to run unattended for a couple of weeks and the ones I already have do just that.

Good day

Quality inverter

Bought this to power my emergency lights during blackouts. Using it in conjunction with a bluetooth dongle and a 100Ah LiFePO4 battery. Works great and you can monitor the usage via the VictronConnect App. Note that this is 400W or 500VA

Trevor Kidson

Awesome device only problem is no protection for reverse polarity and a long wait time on fix.

Victron Phoenix 12/500

The Victron Phoenix 12/500 is perfect for my low load application. It’s quiet compared to other brands I’ve used. Fan only kick in at 70/80% load, so mostly silent. With the Victron IP65 12/15 I run my communications devices uninterrupted. Perfect combo for me.

Great Quality!
