MultiPlus Compact-functional
The MultiPlus Compact gets its name from the multiple functions it can perform. It is a
powerful true sine wave inverter, a sophisticated battery charger that features adaptive
charge technology and a high-speed AC transfer switch in a single compact enclosure.
Beside these primary functions, however, the MultiPlus Compact has several advanced
features that provide a range of new applications as outlined below.
Uninterrupted AC power
In the event of a grid failure, or shore or generator power being disconnected, the inverter
within the MultiPlus Compact is automatically activated and takes over supply to the
connected loads. This happens so fast (less than 20 milliseconds) that computers and other
electronic equipment will continue to operate without disruption.
Parallel and 3-phase operation capability
Up to 6 inverters can operate in parallel to achieve higher power output.
Operation in 3-phase configuration is also possible.
PowerControl – Dealing with limited generator or shore side power
With a Multi Control Panel a maximum generator or shore current can be set. The MultiPlus
Compact will then take account of other AC loads and use whatever is extra for charging,
thus preventing the generator or shore supply from being overloaded.
PowerAssist – Boosting the capacity of shore or generator power
This feature takes the principle of PowerControl to a further dimension allowing the MultiPlus
Compact to supplement the capacity of the alternative source. Where peak power is so often
required only for a limited period, it is possible to reduce the size of generator needed or
conversely enable more to be achieved from the typically limited shore connection. When the
load reduces, the spare power is used to recharge the battery.
Programmable relay
The MultiPlus is equipped with a programmable relay that by default is set as an alarm relay.
The relay can be programmed for all kinds of other applications however, for example as a
starter relay for a generator.

Adaptive 4-stage charging characteristics: bulk – absorption – float – storage
The microprocessor-driven adaptive battery management system can be adjusted for various
types of batteries. The adaptive function automatically adapts the charging process to battery
The right amount of charge: variable absorption time
In the event of slight battery discharge, absorption is kept short to prevent overcharging and
excessive gas formation. After deep discharging, the absorption time is automatically extended
in order to fully charge the battery.

Preventing damage due to excessive gassing: the BatterySafe mode
If, in order to quickly charge a battery, a high charge current in combination with a high
absorption voltage has been chosen, damage due to excessive gassing will be prevented by
automatically limiting the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached.
Less maintenance and aging when the battery is not in use: the Storage mode
The Storage mode kicks in whenever the battery has not been subjected to discharge during
24 hours. In the Storage mode float voltage is reduced to 2,2 V/cell (13,2 V for 12 V battery) to
minimise gassing and corrosion of the positive plates. Once a week the voltage is raised back
to the absorption level to ‘equalize’ the battery. This feature prevents stratification of the
electrolyte and sulphation, a major cause of early battery failure.
Two DC outputs for charging two batteries
The main DC terminal can supply the full output current. The second output, intended for
charging a starter battery, is limited to 4 A and has a slightly lower output voltage.
Increasing service life of the battery: temperature compensation
The temperature sensor (supplied with the product) serves to reduce charging voltage when
battery temperature rises. This is particularly important for maintenance-free batteries, which could otherwise dry out by overcharging.
