Product description

Victron Quattro inverter/charger with up to 8000 VA / 6400 W output, nominal voltages - 48 V input, 230 V output, 110 A charge current. Suitable for both home and commercial use, as well as vehicle and marine applications. The Quattro can be used in off-grid as well as grid-connected PV and other alternative energy systems. Thanks to its two AC inputs and two AC outputs and a built-in transfer switch, it can be connected to the grid and a back-up generator at the same time, and switch automatically in the event of a grid failure. The inverter is compatible with both solar charger controllers and grid-tie inverters.

Additional specifications and description

What is an inverter/charger?
The Victron Quattro is a so-called “inverter/charger” as such, in addition to converting DC to AC, it can also act as a battery charge controller.
Please note that, unlike the Victron Multi RS Solar 48/6000, this unit does not feature MC4 connectors for solar panel strings or built in MPP trackers.
For use in photovoltaic installations, this device needs to be paired with a 
solar charge controller such as the Victron SmartSolar MPPT series.

Expanding on the functionality of the MultiPlus-II
The Quatro is similar to the very popular MultiPlus and MultiPlus-II series of inverters, featuring the same battery charging capability and PowerControl and PowerAssist functions. The main difference is its dual AC inputs, making it ideal for use in applications where a generator is often used to provide power.

What is PowerControl?
This feature allows for a current limit to be set for the grid or generator to 
prevent overloading them. When the power consumption is under the set limit, any excess energy is used to charge the battery.

What is PowerAssist?
This feature allows the Quattro to use the battery to 
supplement the power output in cases where the consumption exceeds the capacity of the grid or generator.

What is the use case for the Quattro?
The Quattro name comes from the fact that this inverter features two AC inputs and two AC outputs. Thanks to the dual AC inputs and automatic built-in transfer switch, the unit can switch between grid and generator, or run off of battery power if no AC input is active. The Quattro is 
ideally suited for residential applications in homes (including off-grid locations) and small businesses, as well as professional marine, yachting and vehicle use. The device pairs well with batteries such as the AQ-LITH EnergyBox and EnergyRack.

Modular in nature
Three devices of the same model can be configured to output three-phase power.
But that’s not all, up to four sets of three 15 kVA Quattro inverters can be
connected to provide 144 kW / 180 kVA output power and 2400 A battery charging current.

Instant response in the event of grid failure
In the event of a grid failure, or when shore or generator power is disconnected, the inverter within the Quattro is automatically activated and starts supplying AC electricity using battery power. This process takes less than 20 milliseconds, which allows computers and other sensitive electronic equipment to continue operating without disruption.

Versatile and easy to use
The settings can be changed 
in a matter of minutes with the VEConfigure software using a computer or laptop and the Victron MK3-USB interface. Multiple monitoring and control options are available from Victron: Cerbo GX, Color Control GX, Venus GX, Octo GX, CANvu GX, a computer, Bluetooth (with the optional VE.Bus Smart Dongle), Battery Monitor and Digital Multi Control Panel. A Cerbo GX or another device from the GX product family can be added to connect the system to the internet.

Local and remote control

When coupled with a controller from the Victron GX family, such as the Cerbo GX, local (LAN) and remote monitoring via the Internet from anywhere in the world is possible. This feature is enabled by the VRM (Victron Remote Management) app and website. Operational data can be stored and displayed the website, free of charge. When connected to the internet, the system can be accessed remotely, and settings can be changed if needed.

Construction and installation
The Quattro features a sturdy metal enclosure that guarantees safe operation and protects it from damage. The device is designed for 
indoor wall mounting and comes with the necessary mounting bracket and mounting hardware. It should not be mounted outside and exposed to temperature extremes or water ingress. Protection rating – IP21.

Additional safety for grid-connected applications
The Quattro features built-in 
anti-islanding functionality for added safety
. In case of a grid failure the photovoltaic system will not feed power back into the grid.
