nope no going to happen, there was talk of it last year then the decision for 3 and 5kw in single phase and a 10kw 3 phase in the hybrids, the Axperts are there for up to 16kw single phase and 24kw for 3 phase  even though they are not true hybrids.

For THAT price they can leave it, sorry :[

Even 2 x 3kw units is still less.

There was talk that these 5kw units can be run in parallel, but I think not?

The Imeon is looking better every day!!!

Guess the only thing that comes close WRT price is 2 x 5kw Axperts with a huge battery bank :D

Even the 6KW IngeCon with it's 96V battery bank is sounding good now, and it can be run in parallel...

Or maybe, just maybe, the Victron Multi / Quattro's (that can be paralleled) with one or many MPPT controllers bought separately to charge your battery bank that you can have as many panels / batteries as you need / want, maybe becomes an option to investigate.

Just putting it out there. :D

As a matter of fact, has anyone here actually done a detailed comparison with the Victron range of products, other than their BMV's and battery balancers?

Because in my opinion, when you start talking R30k upwards for an inverter, as I have learned a few times, it is best you have more options available to move when things have to change, as they always tend to do in solar.

It is really sad that it is so expensive.  I love my 3K+ and would love to have some more available power, but at that price...:(

here is what the distributors have to say:

quote"

The InfiniSolar Plus 5KW is parallelable up to 6 units, 30KW single phase and the 10KW can be parallelable up to 3 units, 30KW 3-phase.

 

The 5KW is pricey, but the InfinSolar Plus 5KW has a dual MPPT, can take up to 18 panels on each, total 36 panels/9000W. In all intents and purposes is a 10KW solar charge with a 5KW inverter. The InfinSolar 5KW is the same specification as the 3KW Plus, a maximum of 16 - 20 solar panels/5000W.

i love the Victron stuff, but if i go for one the quattro 8kva is going to set me back approx R60k, then R10k a pop for blue Mppts, what about the colour control and 702...then you look at a figure of R80 - R90k at least. to me the infini 5kw at approx R43k or the plus model looks more inviting.......i have a demo iMEON  if someone want to sponser my move back to the Infini....make me an offer

Would have liked the normal infini 5kw (not the plus) with two smaller mppt trackers... but at a decent price please!! would have gone for it around or below the R32k mark... Which I would think is possible if you look at the cost of the 3kw plus. Think you can get the 3kw plus now for R18000? So then a resonable price for the 5kw or plus should be around R27k to R32k? 

a bit dissapointed at the price tag!!!! Would so like a SMA hybrid all in one... that should also be one very nice inverter...

i suppose it is because it has two independant MPPT in, can handle 10kw of pv, 100amp charger unit, can parallel ( plus model ).

i can get a few at around R37k each excl plus the courier fee to me.....

my plus unit is giving me over 40kwh per day, or approx 1.1mwh per month and i still have to add more pv...... i really am enjoying it.
