Victron 12V 3000VA MultiPlus VE.Bus 12/3000/120-16 Inverter/Charger: Optimize Your Power with Seamless Integration and Smart Control

Discover the ultimate power solution with the Victron 12V 3000VA MultiPlus Inverter/Charger, designed for those who demand reliability and efficiency in their energy systems. Ideal for a wide range of applications, from off-grid homes to sophisticated marine setups, this inverter/charger ensures continuous power supply and smart energy management.

Dual AC Outputs for Uninterrupted Power and Energy Savings

The MultiPlus features two AC outputs for unparalleled flexibility. The main output provides no-break functionality, seamlessly taking over power supply in milliseconds during grid failure, ensuring no disruption to sensitive electronics. The second output activates with AC input, perfect for non-essential loads, preventing unnecessary battery discharge.

Expandable Power with Parallel Operation

Experience virtually unlimited power capabilities. The MultiPlus allows for parallel connection of up to six units, offering up to 25 kW / 30 kVA of output and impressive charging capacity. This feature is ideal for large-scale installations requiring substantial power without compromising on efficiency.

Advanced Three Phase Capability

For applications demanding three-phase power, configure three units for seamless three-phase output. Expand further with parallel connections for up to 75 kW / 90 kVA of inverter power, catering to the most demanding power needs with ease.

Intelligent Power Management with PowerControl and PowerAssist

Manage limited power sources smartly with PowerControl, setting maximum currents to prevent overloading of generators or shore supplies. PowerAssist enhances this by supplementing insufficient power with battery reserves, ensuring optimal power usage and battery charging.

Solar Energy Integration for Grid Independence

The MultiPlus excels in off-grid and grid-connected PV systems, maintaining AC power even during grid failures. Its compatibility with alternative energy systems makes it a cornerstone for sustainable energy solutions.

Advanced System Configuration and Monitoring

Configure your system quickly with DIP switches or advanced VE.Bus software for parallel and three-phase setups. For off-grid, grid-interactive, or self-consumption applications, specialized Assistants simplify setup, MK3 to USB Cable required (sold separately).

Comprehensive On-Site and Remote Monitoring Options

Stay informed and in control with multiple monitoring options, including the Multi Control Panel, Cerbo GX, Ekrano GX or remotely via smartphone (VE.Bus Smart Dongle required - sold separately), and VRM for easy system oversight and management from anywhere.

Remote System Access and Configuration

With an Ethernet-connected Cerbo GX or other GX devices, access and adjust your system settings remotely, ensuring your system is always optimized for your needs.

The Victron 12V 3000VA MultiPlus Inverter/Charger is more than just a power source; it's a versatile, efficient, and intelligent solution designed to meet the most demanding energy needs. Whether you're powering an off-grid home, a tiny house, or any application where reliable and integrated solar power is needed, the MultiPlus offers a seamless, powerful, and smart energy solution.

Victron Energy Limited Warranty Policy

Victron Energy warrants its products to be free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of 5 years from the date of purchase by the end user, with a maximum of 66 months from the Victron Energy invoice date. Exceptions on this are: lead acid batteries; 2 years from date of purchase by the end user, with a maximum of 30 months from the Victron Energy invoice date, Lithium-ion batteries; 3 years from date of purchase by the end user. In addition to this proof of correct battery usage is required when making a battery warranty claim.

During this period, Victron Energy will, at its option, repair or replace the defective product free of charge. The warranty does not include performing or reimbursing de‐installation, transportation and re‐installation. This warranty will be considered void if the unit has suffered any physical damage or alteration, either internally or externally, and does not cover damages arising from improper use like:
• Reverse of battery polarity.
• Inadequate connection.
• Mechanical shock or deformation.
• Contact with liquid or oxidation by condensation.
• Use in inappropriate environment (dust, corrosive vapor, humidity, high temperature, biological infestation...).
• Breakage or damage due to lightning.
• Connection terminals and screws destroyed or other damages, like overheat, due to insufficient tightening.
• For any electronical breakage except due to lightning (reverse polarity, over‐voltage due to external cause), the state ofthe internal control diode and of the inputs/output X and Y capacitors determine the warranty.

This warranty will not apply where the product has been misused, neglected, improperly installed, or repaired by anyone else than Victron Energy or one of its authorized Qualified Service Partners. In order to qualify for the warranty, the product must not be disassembled or modified.

Repair or replacement are our sole remedies and Victron Energy shall not be liable for damages, whether direct, incidental,special, or consequential, even caused by negligence or fault.
