Victron Energy BV Introduce Quattro 3000
Press release Almere - The Netherlands, February 18, 2009
Victron Energy B.V. introduces the new Quattro 3000
Less complicated, less problems
The Quattro is a unique energy system for boats. Both the shore power and a generator can be connected at the same time.
Connecting two different AC sources to an inverter/charger was, until now, not possible.
Using a Quattro makes a separate transfer switch superfluous. The result: less wiring, easier to install and less costs.
This innovative device was presented for the first time at 'BOOT Holland', a Dutch boat show. It is available in Asia from Storm Force Marine Ltd (www.stormforcemarine.com)
Reliability increased by simplicity
The Quattro 3000 is a combined inverter/charger with two AC inputs. One for shore power and one for a generator.
A transfer switch between shore power and a generator is therefore not needed. This is what, just like its big brother the
Quattro 5000, makes him so unique. In comparison with a conventional system, many devices are integrated into one.
Two AC outputs as well as two AC inputs
The main output has no-break functionality. The Quattro takes over the supply to the connected loads in the event of a grid failure
or disconnection of shore/generator power. The second output is live only when AC is available on one of the inputs of the Quattro.
Loads that should not discharge the battery, like a water heater for example, can be connected to this output.
PowerAssist: boosting shore and/or generator power
Just like the Victron Multi family, the Quattro is equipped with PowerAssist. Where peak power is so often required only for a limited period,
the Quattro will make sure that insufficient shore or generator power is immediately compensated by power from the battery.
When the load reduces, the spare power is used to recharge the battery.
System configuring has never been easier
After installation, the Quattro is ready to go. If settings have to be changed, this can be done in a matter of minutes with new built-in DIP switches.
Alternatively, VE.Net can be used instead of the DIP switches. Victron has also developed sophisticated software, which is available to
configure new and advanced features.
