Victron inverter RS for 12/24V


I currently have a Multiplus II 3000/12-120-32 installed in our camper van. This inverter is really heavy and also the humming noise the transformer is doing is not that nice.

I just saw that there are the RS inverters for 48V available, which are using high frequency techniques. Is there any information if there will also come RS inverters for 12/24V installations?

That would be nice, because the Multiplus I have weighs about 19kg for 3000VA power. The RS has 6000VA and only weighs 11kg. So a 3000VA RS inverter could be <10kg, which would be great, because weight is all time an issue with camper vans, especially in Europe.

Thanks, Tobias

No information and i doubt it would be planned, the start up voltage is simply too high to be practical for lower voltage.

A 250/100 is only 4.5kgs by the way. So even lighter and produces the same amount and is smaller in dimensions. Much more suited to camper van environment.

I'm talking about an 12 or 24V RS Inverter and not about an 250/100 MPPT solar charger.

I just want a lighter 3000VA Inverter with integrated charger like the Multiplus II.

Ah right. Sorry. Wires shorted there. And half baked addition to the answer with the 250/100.

But for the same reasons as the RS MPPT voltage ratio start up would be impractical for 12v. (Since it is basically the MPPT with an inverter section.)
