Multigrid 48/3000/35 replacement

Hi Victron,

We are looking forward to replacing our Victron multigrid 48/3000/35 due to faulty. Because this product is discontinued and we could not find anywhere in Australia.

Could you please give us a solution of replacing our inverter? Thinking of using Multiplus II but it is not in CEC approved list for using in Australia.

Could you please advise which Victron inverter that we can replace in our system to be compliant with Ergon Energy?

Best regards,

Prue

Hi @Prue

The MultiPlus-II is the like-for-like replacement for the MultiGrid, it is the same topology (transformer based) and a model with those same power ratings is available.

You would need to discuss the exact details with your installer and Victron distributor, but there is usually a provision in the standards where a customer is allowed to replace a failed inverter with a like-for-like replacement even if that would not be compliant as a new installation.

There is some more specific information and further references research here - https://support.solarquotes.com.au/hc/en-us/articles/360001755676-Summary-of-Rules-for-Solar-Additions-Alterations-Repairs-Upgrades

Hi Guy Stewart,


I'm sorry for delay reply. Really appreciated it. I'm looking into CEC guideline and it sounds like we can replace it with MultiPlus-II without any trouble.
