Device description

Device is housed in a steel case with a plastic cover, and is attached to the battery with screws. Electro preferences Cable cross-section 10 mm2 / AWG8 Output is standard AC Schuko (CEE 7/4) – male plug included Protection category IP21 Weight 2.4 kg ( 5.4 lb) It has a remote on/off switch, as well as a Filax automatic transfer switch Protection EN/IEC 60335-1/ EN/IEC 62109-1


The Phoenix inverter line was created for professional use and is appropriate for the broadest variety of applications. The goal of the design process was to create a pure sine wave inverter with optimal efficiency and no performance trade-offs. resulting in a high-quality product that is small, light in weight, and capable of providing power to any load without experiencing any problems.

This inverter enables you to use “leisure” or “automotive” batteries with a 12V DC rating to power residential appliances that need 120V AC.
