Victron Energy Pure Sine Wave Phoenix Inverter 48/500 – PIN485010400
The 500VA Victron Energy Phoenix inverter converts the 48V DC power from your leisure batteries into 230V AC power so you can run up to 500VA of domestic appliances continuously when off-grid. This makes the Victron inverter perfect for off-grid applications such as campervans, boats and tiny houses. The 500VA pure sine wave inverter will power products such as laptops, blenders and toasters, providing their combined wattage does not exceed 500VA for a prolonged period.
The 500VA Phoenix inverter model has a UK 3 pin plug connected to the device to allow for easy installation.
The Victron 500VA inverter does not have built-in Bluetooth or smart connectivity, however, you can pair this Phoenix inverter with the VE.Direct smart dongle to allow you to monitor your inverter’s performance and settings via the Victron Connect app. This will allow you to set a series of programmable alarms and cut-offs to warn you of low and high voltages, as well as being able to disconnect if your battery’s voltage drops below a defined value. You can download the Victron Connect App and access its trial product library to see how you can monitor, operate, and configure each component of your system.
Victron 500VA inverter – use case
The Victron Phoenix inverter 500VA is suitable for off-grid electrical system applications such as for use in campervans, motorhomes, RVs, boats and tiny off-grid houses. It is suitable for anyone whose mains power appliances equal a total wattage of 500VA or less.

The Victron 48V 500VA inverter is a 48V pure sine wave inverter, to be used with 48V leisure batteries. If you are running a 48V electrical system, then the Victron 48V 500VA inverter is suitable. This Victron Phoenix inverter will take in a 48V current and convert it to 230V to power your mains appliances.
Pure sine wave inverter
The Victron Energy Phoenix inverter is a pure sine wave inverter. Pure sine wave inverters convert the 48V DC power from your leisure batteries and exactly reproduce the 230V AC waveform you would get from a household mains socket. This means that they can power any 230V appliances. Certain 230V appliances can be damaged or not operate properly when run from a quasi (modified) sine wave inverter.
Victron 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.
When in ECO mode, the inverter will switch to standby when the load decreases below a preset value (min load: 15VA). 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. This helps to reduce the power consumption of the inverter when not in use.
A remote on/off switch can be connected to the Victron Phoenix inverter to allow you to turn off the inverter from a control panel rather than using the on/off switch on the unit itself.
