Product Description

Victron Phoenix Inverter 12V / 3000VA 230V Smart, 5 Year Warranty. The Phoenix Inverter Smart is an efficient and reliable inverter. Built on our proven and field tested Phoenix inverter platform, it now comes with a new slimmer design and full metal casing. Models are available in 1600VA, 2000VA and 3000VA for 12, 24 or 48V systems.

It’s powerful enough to supply most common plug in appliances in your car, boat, caravan or home. A toroidal transformer provides a high peak power surge capacity, stable voltage, frequency and high quality sine-wave.

Installation is simpler than ever before with terminals now more accessible for the installer, enabling a more professional finish.

Bluetooth is built-in, and makes setting up your high power inverter easier than ever before.

Configure alarms, alarm relay, voltage cut-off, output voltage, frequency, eco-mode and more, all from within VictronConnect.

12 / 24 / 48 Volt

Bluetooth built-in: fully configurable with a tablet or smartphone

  • Low battery voltage alarm
  • Low battery voltage cut-off and restart levels
  • Dynamic cut-off: load dependent cut-off level
  • Output voltage: 210 - 245V
  • Frequency: 50 Hz or 60 Hz
  • ECO mode on/off and ECO mode sense level
  • Alarm relay


  • In- and output voltage, load and alarms

VE.Direct communication port
The VE.Direct port can be connected to a computer (VE.Direct to USB interface cable needed) to configure and monitor the same parameters.

Proven reliability
The full bridge plus toroidal transformer topology has proven its reliability over many years.
The inverters are short circuit proof and protected against overheating, whether due to overload or high ambient temperature.

High start-up power
Needed to start loads such as power converters for LED lamps, halogen lamps or electric tools.

ECO mode
When in ECO mode, the inverter will switch to standby when the load decreases below a preset value. Once in standby the inverter will switch on for a short period every 2,5 seconds (adjustable). If the load exceeds the preset level, the inverter will remain on.

Remote on/off
A remote on/off switch or relay contact can be connected to a two pole connector.
Alternatively, the H terminal (left) of the two pole connector can be switched to battery plus, or the L terminal (right) of the two pole connector can be switched to battery minus (or the chassis of a vehicle, for example).

LED diagnosis
Please see manual for a description.

To transfer the load to another AC source: the automatic transfer switch
For Victron low power inverters we recommend our Filax Automatic Transfer Switch. The Filax features a very short switchover time (less than 20 milliseconds) so that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption. Alternatively use a MultiPlus with built-in transfer switch.

Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • Can I run an inverter from AGM or Gel batteries?

    The short answer is yes. People have been running 240V inverters from AGM batteries long before lithium was around. But people have traditionally used a lot lower AC current devices when caravan and camping than they do today.

    Inverters were never intended to run air conditioners, microwaves , coffee machines and the like.....that is until lithium came into the RV market.

    For low current devices (under 600W) it is fine to connect an inverter to your AGM battery system. AGM batteries can put out low current for a long period of time. When you need to go near 1000W or more , then you should consider a lithium battery.

    You can connect an inverter to AGM batteries but you need a lot larger size batteries than lithium (to cope with the high current).

    A general rule of thumb for AGM or GEL batteries is a 1000W inverter should be coupled with 2 x 120A batteries and a 2000W inverter will need 3 x 120Ah batteries.

    Conversely, some 100Ah lithium batteries (Enerdrive, Invicta) can power a 1000W inverter and some 200Ah lithium batteries (Enerdrive) will power a 2000W inverter.

  • Im connecting this to my 2 x 120a Lithium batteries in our Van - What is the recommended cable size to connect to batteries that are app 1.75m from our new 3kw inverterMark

    Hi There,

    According to the Victron User Manual for this inverter, Victron recommend a minimum cable size of 95mmfor cable runs up to 5m in length.

  • Does this inverter range generate Pure or Modified sine wave output?

    Hi There,

    The Victron range of inverters are all pure sinewave inverters.

  • does a 3000w inverter 5000w peak have a cutoff device in an constant overload situation ?

    Hi There,

    These inverters have overload protection so that if a load exceeds the peak output continuously, the inverter will shut off.

    You would then need to wait 30 seconds and then restart the inverter.

    After three restarts followed by another overload within 30 seconds of restarting, the inverter will shutdown and remain off. The LEDs will signal shutdown due to overload. To restart the inverter, switch it Off, then On
