The Victron EasySolar (MPN CEP241621010) 24/1600/40-16 MPPT 100/50 is a high-end all-in-one solution which contains 4 important components for a good solar-system – the MPPT BlueSolar 100/50, the inverter/charger-combination Multiplus 24/1600/40 and an AC-distributor with RCD and two 16A fuses (+10A fuses) for 4 separate circuits.
It needs only a minimum of cabling which reduces installation costs. For all these high-quality components Victron grants a guarantee of 5 years.
1. Components of the EasySolar 12/1600/40-16
1.1 BlueSolar 100/50 50A 12V 24V MPPT charge controller
The Victron MPPT 100/50 (MPN SCC020050200) belongs to BlueSolar MPPT series and – as well as all other models out of this series – provides ultra-fast power-tracking to increase your system’s output.
Especially on cloudy days with changing lighting conditions an extremely fast MPP-tracker increases your output up to 30% compared to PWM controllers and 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.
Moreover it comes with other innovative technologies such as the VE.Direct-port.
1.2 Multiplus 24/1600/40 sine inverter + battery charger
The victron MultiPlus C 24/1600/40 (CMP121620000) is a combination of 24V inverter and battery charger. The integrated battery charger provides 40A which allows quick charging even for bigger batteries as long as there is a grid connection.
The 24V sine inverter converts your DC battery current into a 230V AC current and provides a constant ouput of 1300W. Thanks to a pure sine wave this inverter is also suitable for sensitive electronic devices.
1.3 16A grid-transfer-switch
The 16A transfer switch integrated in the Multiplus ensures a maximum of flexibility. The EasySolar is ideal for various grid-tied or offgrid applications as well as for owners of caravans, campers, boats or yachts who want a high-quality power supply. It is also usable for uninterrupted power supply in case of grid fluctuations or blackouts.
Moreover it is a handy tool for any grid-tied system which only drains power from the supplier when the battery current is not sufficient.
This AC-distributor consists of a 30mA/16A RCD (residual current operated device) and four AC-outputs protected by two 10A and two 16A fuses. One of the 16A-outputs is controlled by the AC-input which means that it switches only if AC-power is available.
2. VE.Bus communication port
The VE.Bus high-performance communication port connects the EasySolar with many other Victron devices such as the Global Remote GSM for worldwide remote control or the system monitor Color Control GX with color display.
Besides that there are many free software tools available for controlling and monitoring of VE.Bus-devices.
