Phoenix 12/500 - Countdown/timer switch on remote

Hi everyone !

I have a Phoenix 12/500 inverter and I would like to activate it with a countdown/timer switch like this :

Is it possible to connect it directly to the remote port ? and if yes, would you have a diagram on how to ? (i didnt find much information on the remote port in any manual or datasheet)


Would any of you have a switch of that type to recommand for a 12v system. I would imagine that it should be something with a low ampere usage, or ?


Thanks for you help !

Not knowing very much about the actual time switch, but I presume it has a simple contact which opens and closes. If so, then that will be very simple to connect to the inverter's remote contact.

You can remove the small black wire loop that is one the green terminal block and then take two wires from the terminal block to the open / close contacts of your time switch.

thank you for answer


Is it possible to order a spare green terminal block ? How would one find it on the internet ?


When you say :

 "then take two wires from the terminal block to the open / close contacts of your time 
switch. 

Do you mean it like this (its a simplified diagram) :

Isnt there a H and L port behind the green terminal block ? Should the switch be plugged in the H or in the L ?
