Victron Phoenix Compact 1.6kVA 1.3kW 12V/24V Inverter

The Phoenix Inverter Compact is a pure sinewave inverter with a high efficiency. It is developed for professional duty and suitable for the wides range of applications.
The Phoenix Inverters Compact is available from 1200VA up to 2000VA in 12V or 24V.

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 optimised 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.

Product Description


Virtually unlimited power thanks to parallel and 3-phase operation capability.

Up to 6 units inverters can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output. Six 24/5000 units, for example, will provide 24kW / 30kVA output power. Operation in 3-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).

Computer interface.

All models have a RS-485 port. All you need to connect to your PC is our MK2 interface (see under accessories).This interface takes care of galvanic isolation between the inverter and the computer, and converts from RS-485 to RS-232. A RS-232 to USB conversion cable is also available. Together with our VEConfigure software, which can be downloaded free of charge from our website, all parameters of the inverters can be customised. 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 VENet, the new power control network of Victron Energy, or to other computerised monitoring and control systems.
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 downloadable from
