Victron Phoenix Inverter VE.Direct 400W

(Flat Rate Shipping – $15.00) Conditions Below.


The Victron Phoenix inverter, is designed to output pure sine wave AC power which is perfect for sensitive electronics.

Designed with the desire to produce a true sine wave inverter with optimised efficiency but without compromise in performance, the phoenix range of inverters are top quality products, employing hybrid HF technology and capable of supplying power, problem free to any load when sized correctly. Compact, light weight, optional remote on/off, 2 year warranty.


VE.Direct Communication Port:

The VE.Direct port can be connected to:

A computer (VE.Direct to USB interface cable needed)

Apple and Android smartphones, tablets, MacBook s and other devices

(VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle needed)

Fully configurable:

Low battery voltage alarm trip and reset levels

Low battery voltage cut-off and restart levels

Dynamic cut-off: load dependent cut-off level

Output voltage 210 – 245V

Frequency 50 Hz or 60 Hz

ECO mode on/off and ECO mode sense level


In- and output voltage, % load and alarms


Proven reliability:

The full bridge plus toroidal transformer topology has proven its reliability over many years. The inverters are short circuit proof and protected against overheating, whether due to overload or high ambient temperature.


High start-up power:

Needed to start loads such as power converters for LED lamps, halogen lamps or electric tools.


ECO mode:

When in ECO mode, the inverter will switch to standby when the load decreases below a preset value (min load: 15W). Once in standby the inverter will switch on for a short period (adjustable, default: every 2,5 seconds). If the load exceeds a preset level, the inverter will remain on.


Remote on/off:

A remote on/off switch can be connected to a two pole connector, or between battery plus and the left hand contact of the two pole connector.


LED diagnosis:

Please see manual for a description.


To transfer the load to another AC source: the automatic transfer switch:

For our low power inverters we recommend our Filax Automatic Transfer Switch. The Filax features a very short switchover time (less than 20 milliseconds) so that computers and other electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption.


DC connection with screw terminals:

No special tools needed for installation.
