2018 Transit Custom fitted with Victron Power Inverter
This brand new model Transit Custom MCA, was recently fitted with a 250w power inverter. This provides a household power supply whilst on the move.
The Victron Pure Sine wave inverter was installed under the passenger seat of the vehicle, with the outlet mounted in the trim directly below the handbrake, the same place as the factory option.
The factory fitted inverter in the Transit Custom is only rated to 150w! So almost double the power is available, with this aftermarket install. The unit itself was mounted to a trimmed panel to better integrate it into the factory interior. (We know the cover is upside down, unfortunately we couldn't alter this)!
Finally the unit was configured via laptop to ensure the low voltage shut down threshold was correct. What this means, is that as the battery of the vehicle drops below a pre-defined voltage the unit automatically shuts down to ensure the van still starts! Also programmed was the re-start voltage (when the engine charges the battery enough the inverter re-starts automatically), and "ECO" mode. The unit automatically shuts down and starts up on demand from the device plugged into the household socket...
All Victron products come with a 5 year manufacturers warranty as standard. This reinforces the quality of the components used!
All connections to the vehicle were made according to the Ford BEMM manual. This ensures the smart alternator charging system on the vehicle isn't affected, and no warranties on the vehicle are voided.
There are cheaper systems out there, but when it comes to on board power and vehicle electrics, is it really worth cutting corners?
We can specify on board power systems according to your individual needs. From 250w up to 3kw and beyond!

Nice to work on the 2018 Transit Custom.
