Filax 2: the ultra-fast transfer switch
The Filax has been designed to switch critical or sensitive loads, such as computers, industrial controls or modern entertainment equipment from one AC source to another. The priority source typically is the mains, a generator or shore power. The alternate source typically is an inverter. With its switching time of less than 20 milliseconds sensitive loads will continue to operate without disruption. The Filax is not intended to supply high power household equipment like washing machines, or electric motors.
Open transition transfer
The Filax is an open transition (break before make) transfer switch. The maximum load transfer time is 16ms. The load is normally supplied by the priority source, and is transferred to the alternate source if:
- The voltage of the priority source drops below the threshold value.
- The frequency of the priority source drops below the low frequency threshold value, or increases beyond the high frequency threshold value.
Reverse transfer from the alternate source to the priority source is initiated when the priority source has operated within the voltage and frequency reverse switching limits during 30s.
• Install the Filax in a dry, well-ventilated area.
• The input cables from the generator/mains, the inverter and the output cables to the appliances should be
connected according to the wiring diagram.
• If a load of less than 850 Watts is connected, then the wire bridges should be removed.
• The frequency (50Hz or 60Hz) is set with a jumper. 50Hz no jumper placed. 60Hz jumper placed (see photo)
If the jumper is not set for the frequency the voltage switching threshold levels will be incorrect.
• Both inputs must be protected against current levels higher than 16 amps.
• The front of the casing is attached using the four supplied screws.
• The Filax is now ready for use.
Victron Energy Limited Warranty Policy
Victron Energy warrants its products to be free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of 5 years from the date of purchase by the end user, with a maximum of 66 months from the Victron Energy invoice date. Exceptions on this are: lead acid batteries; 2 years from date of purchase by the end user, with a maximum of 30 months from the Victron Energy invoice date, Lithium-ion batteries; 3 years from date of purchase by the end user. In addition to this proof of correct battery usage is required when making a battery warranty claim.
During this period, Victron Energy will, at its option, repair or replace the defective product free of charge. The warranty does not include performing or reimbursing de‐installation, transportation and re‐installation. This warranty will be considered void if the unit has suffered any physical damage or alteration, either internally or externally, and does not cover damages arising from improper use like:
• Reverse of battery polarity.
• Inadequate connection.
• Mechanical shock or deformation.
• Contact with liquid or oxidation by condensation.
• Use in inappropriate environment (dust, corrosive vapor, humidity, high temperature, biological infestation...).
• Breakage or damage due to lightning.
• Connection terminals and screws destroyed or other damages, like overheat, due to insufficient tightening.
• For any electronical breakage except due to lightning (reverse polarity, over‐voltage due to external cause), the state ofthe internal control diode and of the inputs/output X and Y capacitors determine the warranty.
This warranty will not apply where the product has been misused, neglected, improperly installed, or repaired by anyone else than Victron Energy or one of its authorized Qualified Service Partners. In order to qualify for the warranty, the product must not be disassembled or modified.
Repair or replacement are our sole remedies and Victron Energy shall not be liable for damages, whether direct, incidental,special, or consequential, even caused by negligence or fault.
