Phoenix MultiPlus C12/1600/70-16
The MultiPlus is a powerful true sine wave inverter, a sophisticated battery charger that features adaptive charge technology, and a high-speed AC transfer switch in a single compact enclosure. The MultiPlus is compatible with Lithium-ion batteries.
Double AC outputs
The main output features a no-break function: when the shore power or the genset power fails, the MultiPlus takes charge of the active loads without discontinuity. The second output is active only when an AC source is connected. The loads that may discharge the batteries, like the boiler, shall be connected to the second output.
Parallel operation and three-phase configuration
The MultiPlus are able to be installed in parallel up to 6 units. In addition to parallel connection, three units of the same model can be configured for threephase output: up to 6 sets of three units can be parallel connected for a total output of 75KW /90kVA and a current of 2000A.
The MultiPlus is a very powerful battery charger, drawing high currents from the genset or from the shore power (up to 10A per 5kVA Multi at 230 VAC). In order to avoid any generator or shore overload, a current limit can be set through the Multi Control Panel; this way the Multiplus will charge the battery with the
current not used from the others AC loads on board.
In the event that the onboard load exceeds the available shore power, the inverter function works in parallel with the shore connection to boost the total energy available and avoid overload. This works just the same with a generator.
Four stage adaptive charger and dual battery charging
The main output provides a powerful charge to the battery system by means of advanced “adaptive charge” software. The software automatically tunes three charging stages in order to give the battery what it needs and to add a forth stage for long periods of float charging. The second output is a float –only intended for engine start battery.
After installation, the MultiPlus is ready to work. If settings have to be changed, this can be done with the DIP switch setting procedure. Even parallel and 3-phase operation can be programmed with DIP switches. The VE.Net panel can be used as well for any setting modification.
For a better use of all MultiPlus systems, it is necessary to install the Ve bus Multi Control 16 or the Digital Multi Control remote control. It offers power control and power assist.
