SOLAR INSTALLATIONS, INVERTERS, ENERGY STORAGE AND OTHER SOLUTIONS



We know that every job is different, so we offer many different types of solar installation services. We have expertise in each type of solar installation from residential to commercial and utility scale. Trying to decide if going for solar is right for you? Our consultation services will break down the process so you can make the best decision for you. We can also design any system to ensure that your system doesn’t just produce power, it also looks aesthetically pleasing. Looking to add a battery storage system? We have that covered too. Many companies get overwhelmed with work and need to subcontract jobs to help out. Our team is fully able and willing to help step in on a subcontract basis. Once your system is installed, operations and maintenance are required to make sure your system produces the maximum power that it can. We know that systems sometimes break down over time. We offer repair and troubleshooting services to help out with that.

INVERTERS



Multifunctional:

Similar, to the MultiPlus, the Quattro is also a combined inverter and charger. Additionally it can accept two AC inputs and automatically connect to the active source. Its many features include a true sine wave inverter, adaptive charging, hybrid Power Assist technology plus multiple system integration features such as three or split phase operation and parallel operation.

Designed in Taiwan, Axpert is a brand of the world's largest OEM battery inverter manufacturer with more than 100,000 Axpert Inverters produced annually.

The 3rd generation Axpert VM-III combines the functions of an Inverter/Charger for grid backup with an 80A MPPT Solar Charge Controller for PV generation into one wall-mount 10kg enclosure. It’s ideal for single-phase residential or SME sites.

With a Power Factor of 1, it’s 5kVA rating provides 5kW of continuous Pure Sine Wave output (10kW surge rating). And it’s 60A (3kW) AC charging rate is ideal for grid-backup as it can rapidly charge batteries, particularly Solarquick’s Pylon range. And it’s wide AC input voltage is compatible with a generator on a change-over switch so the backup genset can be used to charge batteries.

Easy PV String Design

It’s wide MPPT range (120-450V) and high maximum DC input voltage (500V) maximises flexibility of PV string design, permitting all PV panels to be placed in series. The integrated 80A MPPT Solar Charge Controller provides 4kW of PV charging but with its 500V Open Circuit Voltage up to 5kWp of PV can be connected to allow for temperature losses.

Uninterrupted AC Power (UPS Function), down to 10ms Response Time

In the event of power cuts, the VMI-III’s inverter is automatically activated and supplies 5kW of back-up power to connected loads. The default response time is 20ms (with AC input voltage of 90-280V AC) but can be configured to 10ms (with a narrower AC input voltage of 170-280V) for computers and other sensitive electrical equipment.

Plug & Play Compatibility with Pylontech Lithium Batteries.

All Axpert inverters support lead acid with adjustable voltage values as well as a range of Battery Equalisation settings for flooded batteries. However, VM-III is the first Axpert inverter to feature integrated RS-485 & CAN communication ports for connecting to the Battery Management System (BMS) of Pylontech lithium batteries, capable of up to 6000 cycles and fast 0.5C charging. Simply plug in Pylontech’s included RJ45 cable to for optimal performance.

Built-in Bluetooth and Android App

With integrated Bluetooth connectivity and Android app, the VM-III can be configured by installers on-site from their smartphone, rather than needing to navigate the on-screen menu.

The CCGX sits at the heart of your energy installation. All the other system-components - such as inverter/chargers, solar chargers, and batteries - are connected to it. The CCGX ensures that they all work in harmony.Monitoring of the system can be done either with the CCGX in front of you - or from anywhere in the world using an internet connection and the VRM Portal.The CCGX also provides Remote firmware updates and allows settings to be Changed Remotely.The Color Control GX is part of the GX product family. GX products are Victron's state-of-the-art monitoring solution that run our Venus OS operating system.All the information in this manual refers to the latest software. You can check your device has the latest version in the Firmware menu when the GX device is connected to the internet. For installations without internet, you can find the latest version in Victron Professional.

The Victron MultiPlus-II-3kVA 48V, Single Phase, Parallels combines the functions of the MultiPlus and the MultiGrid.
It has all the features of the MultiPlus, plus an external current transformer option to implement PowerControl and PowerAssist and to optimize self-consumption with external current sensing (max. 32A).
It also has all the features of the MultiGrid with built-in anti-islanding and an increasingly long list of country approvals.Key features:Power Assist:The MultiPlus-II will prevent overload of a limited AC source, such as a generator or shore power connection. First, battery charging will automatically be reduced when otherwise an overload would occur. The second level will boost the output of a generator or shore side supply with power taken from the battery.ESS-Energy Storage Systems:The MultiPlus-II is the key component in a Victron ESS system, providing the flexibility to combine with MPPT Solar Chargers or Grid-tie PV Inverters.Uninterrupted AC power (UPS function): In the event of a grid failure, or when shore or generator power is disconnected, the inverter within the Multi is automatically activated and takes over the supply to the connected loads. This happens so fast (less than 20 milliseconds) that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption.Remote Monitoring and Control:Monitor and control your Multi and system or systems' locally (LAN) or remotely via the internet from anywhere in the world, using the free VRM app and free VRM portal website. Access can be from a phone, tablet, laptop or PC for multiple operating systems. There is no end to the level of control, via the required Color Control GX or Venus GX, from adjusting your Multi to auto starting a back generator and more.

ENERGY STORAGE

Pylontech's Low Voltage Battery Communication Hub (LV Hub) links up the CAN/RS-485 communication ports from each Pylontech US2000 or US3000 battery module.

It is only required for installations with 9 or more batteries are used and it is only for BMS communication to the inverter/charger using RJ45 network cables. Distribution of battery power is done with the 125A Pylon Inverter Cables that link to the BUS bar.

  • The LV Hub supports up to 5 "piles" of 8 batteries for a total of 40 linked batteries (144kWh with US3000).

  • Up to five LV Hubs can in turn be linked for up to 200 batteries (720kWh with US3000).

ACCESSORIES 

The Venus GX is the communication-centre of your installation. Venus allows users to talk to all components in your system and ensure they are working in harmony. Monitoring of live data, and changing settings is performed by using smartphone or other device via the free-to-use Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM). It performs the same functions (and more) as Victron's more expensive Colour Control GX but lacks a display - your smartphone is the display.
