Do you have a link to that Multi 12/500/20 without "Plus" ?

In the official pricelist is only one Multi without "Plus" the Multi RS.
All others are official named MultiPlus but they are also often just called Multi

The main advantages of MultiPlus 500VA over the Multi 500VA are:
Parallel and Three Phase capability.
Power Assist
Power Control

The details are in paragraphs 2 - 4 of this datasheet:
https://www.victronenergy.com/upload/documents/Datasheet-MultiPlus-500VA-2000VA-EN.pdf

The Multi 500VA does not offer those features in paragraphs 2 - 4.

Is that some kind of special product for a small marked or an EOL product or something?

I can't find anything about that.

Edit: I found something in the old manual section. It seem like to be an EOL product, the first Multi(Plus) in the new plastic case.Looks like it was only available for around 2 years between late 2016 and early 2018.

I found a "Multi 500VA" document hosted elsewhere:

My multi - has it been discontinued? img-20220122-085508-01.jpg

It is definitely EOL.

It is not in the pricelist since Q1 2018.
