Victron Multiplus Theory of Operation manual wanted

Does one exist? I have no idea.

I'm looking for more complete documentation of the capabilities and setup of the Multiplus inverter/chargers. I have a Multiplus-3k-120v system.

These 2 manuals are not very in depth:

https://www.victronenergy.com/upload...4xx)-EN-ES.pdf

https://www.victronenergy.com/upload...4xx)-EN-ES.pdf

And you can get some more info from the ve-config tools documentation:

https://www.victronenergy.nl/support...loads/software


I am hoping that someone out there has something with more details in it.
Feel free to PM me if you do not want to post the link to it.

Thanks!

Of course posting in this thread would do us all a service.

Pretty sure anything they've published is on the site.

Have you posted to their forum?

I talked to their North American HQ in this regards.

I've not posted on their forum yet.

A manual for training the Victron techs would be good. I'm looking to a full understanding of its functionality at a high tech level.

I'm thinking that my best bet without the tech training materials is to study the VE connect options for the device. And from there deduce the functions available.

Victron product capabilities are, in my opinion, a well kept secret. Itís not because Victron is trying hide anything. Quite the opposite. They are way more forthcoming than most. But the information is vomit on the floor. Or perhaps more accurately, vomit across campus. Follow the trail and you will eventually piece it all together, but itís quite the treasure hunt.

That's what I have found out.

Next step is to get the open source code for the various control programs and see what can be adjusted/changed/monitored and put together a function list.

Having the source to the inverter code would be a big help too....

But what a total fail when it comes to presenting your products to the market. Go look at the source code. Are you kidding me? I really hope they can get it together, as they have so much to offer.

There is a very active Victron sponsored and monitored website:
https://community.victronenergy.com

I recommend that you post your questions there.
