Product Description

Victron Phoenix Pure Sine Wave Inverter 12V / 500VA VE.Direct AU/NZ, 5 Year Warranty. Inverters allow you to power domestic equipment - requiring 230V/120V AC - using 'leisure' or 'automotive' batteries rated at 12V, 24V or 48V DC.

VE.Direct communication port:

  • The VE.Direct port can be connected to:
    • A computer (VE.Direct to USB interface cable needed)
    • Apple and Android smartphones, tablets, MacBook’s and other devices (VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle needed)
  • Fully configurable:
    • Low battery voltage alarm trip and reset levels
    • 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
  • Monitoring:
    • In- and output voltage, % load and alarms

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 (min load: 15W). Once in standby the inverter will switch on for a short period (adjustable, default: every 2,5 seconds). If the load exceeds a preset level, the inverter will remain on.

Remote on/off:

A remote on/off switch can be connected to a two pole connector, or between battery plus and the left hand contact of the two pole connector.

LED diagnosis:

Please see manual for a description.

To transfer the load to another AC source: the automatic transfer switch:

For our 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.

DC connection with screw terminals:

No special tools needed for installation

Outstanding Review by
I have this running off a 12v 105amp hour agm battery and a 285w solar panel with a 20a bluesolar Pwm light solar charge controller. It's running a water pump and light for my pond. The victron products are great value and quality. Great little off grig system.

Quality efficient inverter Review by
After now using it for a few weeks powering my two way fridge it has been very quiet, efficient and can easily cope with the job in hand. Also been charging other devices at the same time and so far no issues. Was very impressed with other reviews and the five year warranty.

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.
