connect 5 X Phoenix 12 | 500 VA inverters in parallel to power single phase Load

Hi,

Can I connect 5 X Phoenix 12 | 500 VA inverters in parallel to power a single phase Load ( consume around 2000W) ?

does these inverters need any data cable to connect between them to handle the phase shifts issues ?

the system should be Off-grid

also does these inverters work with Pylontech batteries, 48V , 2.4Kw ?

many thanks

No, the small Phoenix inverter (with VE.direct) can't work together in parallel.
Only the older model with VE.Bus can be configured to work in parallel (or 3-phase).

Given that the Phoenix is a VEdirect device not a VE-bus device, it is unlikely these will operate in parallel. You should look at a suitable sized MP2 inverter for this job. Also the 12V inverter mentioned will not work with the 48V battery.
