INVERTERS


Victron Quattro

Key features

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.

Two AC Inputs & two AC Outputs:

The Quattro can be connected to two independent AC sources, for example shore-side power and a generator, or two generators. The Quattro will automatically connect to the active source. The main output has no-break functionality. In the event of a grid failure, or shore or generator power being disconnected, the Quattro 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. The second output is live only when AC is available on one of the inputs of the Quattro. Loads that should not discharge the battery, such as air-conditioning or a water heater can be connected to this output.

Unique Power Assist feature:

The Quattro 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.

Virtually unlimited power thanks to parallel operation:

Up to 6 Quattro's can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output. Three phase or split phase operation is also possible. Please check our data sheets to see which models have paralleling, three phase and split phase capabilities.

Remote Monitoring and Control:

Monitor and control your Quattro 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 Quattro to setting a Geofence for hire vehicles and more.

Axpert VM-III 5kW (48V)



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 m

LVL Premium 15.4kWh


The BYD Battery Box Premium LVL is the ideal 48V Lithium battery for mini-grid, C&I, and large stand-alone installations with its 10-year warranty, high operating temperature, rapid charge/discharge capability and its 6000 cycle life.

LVL 15.4kWh is the new successor to the popular Battery Box Pro 13.8 with increased storage capacity and more than twice as much parallel capacity (64 units or 983kWh vs 32 units and 442kWh). All achieved in a more attractive enclosure that is 35% smaller and 10% less heavy. Ideal for containerised power rooms, the Battery Box Premium LVL can now be stacked reducing battery footprint.

US2000 48V 2.4kWh Lithium Battery


Based in Shanghai, China, Pylontech is a leader in stationary storage in Europe & South Africa and the only large manufacturer of Lithium batteries that focuses exclusively on stationary storage and not batteries for Electric Vehicles (as BYD, LG Chem, and others do). Pylontech produces their own Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cells (at a fully automated factory) and Battery Management System and is able to achieve 6000 cycle lifetime and a 10 year warranty with compatibility across a growing list of inverters including Solarquick’s Axpert, Goodwe & Victron models.

In the last year, Pylontech has doubled capacity from 500MWh to 1GWh and will go public in 2020, ensuring more bankability behind their 10 year warranty.

US2000:

The compact 48V 50Ah 2.4kWh Pylontech US2000 is ideal for replacing lead acid batteries in Nigeria with the following benefits:

Usable Capacity:

with 90% Depth of Discharge (DoD), the US2000 provides 2.2kWh of usable capacity vs 50% DoD with Lead Acid batteries. A typical 200Ah 12V Lead - Acid battery provides only 1.2kWh so the Pylon US2000 with 2.2kWh is equivalent to almost two of those Lead Acid Batteries

Fast Charging/Discharging:

Pylontech batteries charge/discharge at 0.5C (ie 2 hours) rather than 0.2C for Lead Acid which means they are perfect for grid-challenged urban back-up power where they can quickly charge from PHCN when available and provide sustained high-output power during power cuts.

Rapid installation:

Pylontech's proprietary interconnect cables (included with each battery) allow for very quick on-site installation without the need to procure separate cabling. Moreover, by connecting the included RJ45 cable into the CAN communication port of compatible inverters, the Pylon US3000 settings are automatically loaded into the inverter.

Full Output at 50 C:

Unlike Lithium NMC (found in smartphones and EVs), LFP is ideal for use in high temperature and is able to output full power at up to 50 C. By contrast Lead Acid de-rates above 25 C.

Inverter-independent warranty: unlike BYD, whose 10 year warranty is contingent on installation with approved SMA, Goodwe, and Victron inverters, Pylontech settings (charging current, LVD, etc.), can be set in low cost inverters providing a means to upgrading legacy lead acid systems.
