METSTRADE 2023 – Will you be there?

The Marine Electronics Trade Show beginning soon in Amsterdam

The biggest marine equipment trade show METSTRADE opens from 15 until 17 November, in Amsterdam. We’ll be there, will you?

Come and visit us on stand number 01.541

During the past 48 years of innovation Victron Energy have become best known for making the largest range of solar charge controllers in the world and a huge range of Inverters, Chargers, and Inverter/Chargers for the Marine, Industrial, Hybrid Generator, Mobile, Off-Grid, and Grid-connected power markets.

We’ve also developed – and are continually adding features to – the most desirable app-based user-interfaces.

METSTRADE 2023 – What can you see at Victron Energy?

We’ve built live demonstrations featuring all our latest Marine products and Software developments – such as the Smart BuckBoost:

It can be ‘surface’ …or ‘flush-mounted’ – in which case the Ekrano GX is waterproof. Behind the display there is a comprehensive range of communication ports. Two relays provide automated actions – such as generator auto-start/stop.

Victron Energy devices and events you’ll be able to see, touch and hear at METSTRADE:

Venus OS – Graphical User Interface (GUI)

Like all our ‘GX’ communication centre devices the Ekrano GX runs our Venus OS. Coming soon – it will offer a super intuitive new way of viewing system data as GUI. Take a look at the Experience the power preview image shown above.

Multi-Function Display (MFD) Integration

Speaking of user-interfaces – our MFD demonstration will show you how easily Victron products integrate with leading navigation systems to present data straight to the Glass Bridge using HTML5 or NMEA2000.

*Why not attend one of our twenty-minute ‘Power Sessions’ – live discussions to learn about Victron power products and MFD integration? [See ‘ Power Session’ below.]

Solar and Wind Priority – put green power first

There’s been quite a buzz around our recently-launched feature ‘Wind and Solar Priority’ which allows users to prioritise the use of ‘free’ green energy – even whilst the vessel is plugged into shore power! It overcomes the frustration of solar panels and wind turbines becoming almost useless in dock because they are overridden by the AC shore connection. Not now!

Once enabled, shore power will only be used if the battery state-of-charge falls below a desired level; if there’s been a poor power-harvest for seven consecutive days; or to supply big loads.

Solar and Wind Priority – enabled.

Intergrating Marine Energy Systems –  in which we discuss our communication centre devices and software: Ekrano GX / Venus OS / VictronConnect / VRM / MFD / and our Wind and Solar Priority feature.
Building Marine Energy Systems – in which we discuss Inverters/Chargers and the safe use of Alternators in power hungry systems. All the latest products.
Each information-packed discussion runs for just 20 minutes, and each topic is available once in the morning and once in the afternoon on all show-days.

METSTRADE takes place at RAI Amsterdam, Europaplein, 1078 GZ Amsterdam, The Netherlands

See you there!
