Lynx Ion + Shunt 600

Lithium Ion simplicity: New Lynx Ion + Shunt 350/600

Integrating components for any system results in simplification and smaller footprints. It’s better to have one smaller integrated unit than two larger ones with additional wiring. This is happily the case with the new combined Lynx Ion + Shunt 350A or 600A battery management system (BMS), which replaces the separate units of the Lynx Ion  and the Lynx Shunt VE.Can. Not only that, but of course the new unit is easier to connect, takes up less space and even costs less. What’s not to like?Continue reading

Victron Toolkit: A new app for Android and iPhone users

Victron Toolkit enables you to:

  • Calculate cable size and voltage drop. Easily select cable length, amperes and cable cross section to determine the voltage drop over the cable.
  • Understand all LED codes from Victron Energy Multi and Quattro inverter/chargers. Scroll through the list of all possible codes. Or tap each LED until all of them blink exactly like the code you see on the product. The app contains normal operation codes, warnings, alarms and error codes.
  • Temperature derating. Calculate output power derating for inverters and chargers for the expected ambient temperature.

MultiCompacts improved: faster switching to grid

The hardware in our MultiCompact inverter/charger range has been improved: it can now switch much faster from inverter mode to mains mode. Combined with our high peak power ratings, this makes it possible to switch to mains mode before shutting down in an inverter overload alarm. This is especially useful in Self-consumption Hub-1 and 2 installations: it allows using an inverter/charger with a nameplate power below the system power.
