Victron Energy Range Of Solar Products
Victron Energy have possibly the widest variety of solar products of any manufacturer with everything from tiny solar controllers up to a large 15kVA grid-interactive inverter/chargers, not to mention a seemingly unlimited combination of add-ons and accessories to create everything from simple battery monitors to remote AC or DC-coupled off-grid power systems.
Main products manufactured by Victron Energy:
Solar charge controllers (PWM & MPPT)
Remote control /system monitors
Battery balancers and accessories
Batteries - Lead-acid & lithium-ion
Victron manufactures everything from a tiny 0.5kVA inverters up to a large 15kVA grid-interactive inverter/charger.
Not only do they have a wide range of sizes but also a multitude of devices designed specifically for various applications.
The more advanced Victron Multiplus inverters have multiple AC inputs and can seamlessly supply power from the grid or a generator depending on which is active.
The large Quattro range of inverter/chargers are designed for high end applications requiring advanced power management and incorporate multiple AC inputs and outputs which can be configured depending on the application.
The Multiplus and Quattro inverter/chargers can also be setup in parallel (up to 6 units) for high power output situations or in 3-phase configurations for larger commercial systems.

Solar MD 3.7k / 7.4k Advanced Lithium-Ion battery.
The batteries relies on lithium Iron-Phosphate battery for streamlined energy storage.
You can use 1 to 6 batteries on the wall during the setup. The Solar MD features different storage capacities according to user requirements. We can increase capacity through the parallel connection of the batteries. This will enable you to use from 3.7kWh to 22.2kWh setup.
100% Depth of Discharge (DOD) & 98% Efficiency
Long life cycle with High energy density.
High charge & discharge rate.

Freedom Won LiTe Lithium-Ion batteries.
Freedom Won offers long overdue next-generation energy storage with a quantum increase in service life and operational efficiency at a fraction of the lifecycle cost compared to other energy storage options.
We have both Africa’s unique power challenges covered, as well as the world over, with our leading range of superior LiTe batteries (LiFePO4 – Lithium Iron Phosphate).
Freedom Won’s Lite battery solutions are fast becoming the preferred choice as the huge advantages of using this technology become apparent via our LiTe batteries, installed within both the residential and business environments.
High energy density: more energy with less weight.
High charge currents (shortens the charge period).
High discharge currents (enabling, for example, electrical cooking on a small battery bank).
Long battery life (up to six times the battery life of a conventional battery).
High efficiency between charging and discharging (very little energy loss due to heat development).
Higher continuous power available.

Basic Self-Consumption/ESS Explained:
Backup Load/Priority Circuits get power in this order:
1st: from Solar Panels 2nd: from Batteries 3rd: Last resort is the Grid.
Once the battery is fully charged (typically around midday) and the Load has power from the Solar Panels, excess solar power will:
Supply Solar Power to the Non-Essential loads in your home main DB (e.g. geysers, pools, ponds, washing machines, etc).
Maximising your Electricity Savings in the entire Home.
Battery Power (Solar Charged) will then supply the night time load (extending your Elec Savings even further).
A reserve amount of battery can be programmed in to be used in case of Load-shedding.
The Victron Energy VRM Monitoring platform offers an Advanced Monitoring portal for your Smart Phone (Real-Time) and an online historical Monitoring/Analysis portal which is easy to use, navigate and understand.
