Snaptec Australia has released the new Phoenix Easyplus inverter/charger. The Phoenix EasyPlus is a multifunctional energy system consisting of a powerful sinewave inverter, a sophisticated battery charger, a high speed AC transfer switch and AC distribution in a single light weight and compact enclosure. The system has been designed for those who want to enjoy the comfort and freedom of a complete energy system without spending time on the installation of separate components and difficult technical procedures.
The EasyPlus guarantees uninterrupted power supply where the available AC power is limited. The unique PowerAssist technology makes it possible to boost the total capacity by adding extra energy from the batteries. Optimum safety is guaranteed with the integrated RCD (Residual Current Device) protecting against earth leakage.
The Phoenix EasyPlus is connected to the batteries and to AC supply. The maximum available AC supply power is set using the dial on the control panel. The output load is divided into two groups. The first group consists of the ‘regular’, low or short term loads such as sockets or low power control equipment. This group can be fed from both AC input and battery power through the inverter. The second group is the heavy loads. This can be a pump or an air-conditioning. In order to protect the batteries from excessive discharge, this second group is only powered by the AC input and cannot be supplied when the inverter is functioning. The PowerAssist technology protects the AC input from being overloaded by adding extra inverter power when needed.
The EasyPlus gets its name from the simplicity of installation and use. The system can be installed within five simple steps making significant savings in time as well as space. The EasyPlus provides plugs and sockets for all AC connections and is supplied with the battery cables already fitted so you can save hours in installation time.
The following are the steps involved in the installation of the Phoenix EasyPlus inverter charger:
Step 1. Select a suitable place for the EasyPlus as close as possible to the batteries and install the wall mounting bracket. Attach the Easy Plus to the bracket and secure it with the screws provided.
Step 2. Connect the shore/generator input power and the outgoing circuits to the Easy Plus.
Step 3. Connect the control panel with the UTP patch lead (both supplied as standard).
Step 4. Connect the battery cables and temperature sensor to the batteries (also supplied as standard).
Step 5. Switch on the RCD, the AC distribution and the inverter charger and the system is ready to use.
