Victron Energy B.V. Introduces the New Quattro 10000 48VBy Victron Energy B.v., PRNE

ALMERE, The Netherlands, August 19, 2010 - The Victron Quattro series has reached a peak: the powerful Quattro
10kVA. This is the first 10kVA unit produced by Victron Energy B.V.
(www.victronenergy.com/). Using a Quattro makes a separate transfer
switch superfluous. The result: less wiring, easier to install and less
costs. The new Quattro 10kVA makes it possible to generate even more energy.
All in one
The Quattro 10000 is a combined inverter/charger with two AC inputs. One
for mains and one for a generator. Or in the case of two generators: one for
each generator. A transfer switch between two AC sources is therefore not
needed. This integrated system is what makes the Quattro so unique, just like
the earlier models, the Quattro 3kVA, 5kVA and 8kVA. In comparison with a
conventional system, many devices are integrated into one.
Two AC Outputs
The main output has no-break functionality. In the event of a grid
failure, or shore or generator power being disconnected, the Quattro takes
over the supply to the connected loads. This happens so fast (less than 20
milliseconds) that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to
operate without disruption. 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, such as air-conditioning or a water heater, can be
connected to this output.
PowerAssist: boosting 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 mains or generator power is
immediately compensated by power from the battery. When the load reduces, the
spare power is used to recharge the battery.
Parallel or three phase capability
Up to ten Quattro units can operate in parallel. Also, up to 10 sets of
three units can be parallel connected. This means that there are many
different ways to design a system.
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.
