Have 5 year old Inverter that states 12/375. Have bought VE to |USB cable to re-configure but settings only allow me to go to 210V.
Is there a work around for this?
If you are changing tha AC in only, then an auto transformer is required to convert the 110 into 220 /230V. The inverter will still output 230V as set by VE configure. you can't set this by software to a 110V - the inverter transformers are different.
If you need 110 out as well as in, then a 2nd auto transformer or a new inverter will be required.
The 230 volt and 120 volt units are different models. No way to change in software or internal jumpers.
As Mike suggested, you can use a transformer on the inverter output to step down the voltage.
Normally, a boat is designed for either 120 or 240 volts for all loads and shore power is what needs to adapt to the locality. With an inverter only, I don't see why you'd be switching between 230 and 120 volts based on your location, unless you are refitting your boat with all new appliances. Then a new inverter probably makes the most sense.
