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 refrigeration compressors, electric motors, and similar appliances.
Virtually unlimited power thanks to parallel 3-phase and split phase operation capability
Up to 6 units inverters can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output. Six 24/3000 units, for example,
will provide 15 kW / 18 kVA output power. Operation in 3-phase or split phase configuration is also possible.
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).
These larger Phoenix inverter models come with a VE.Bus port. All you need to connect to your PC is our MK3-
USB VE.Bus to USB interface (see under accessories). Together with our VictronConnect or VEConfigure software,
which can be downloaded free of charge from our website, parameters of the inverters can be customized. 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 a GX device (eg Cerbo GX) for monitoring and control.
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
