This calculator is included here since, although it has no known connection with ANITA, it is obviously a copy of the ANITA design. However, the plastic mouldings, the name panel, and the switches are not quite up to the ANITA quality.

If you have any further information about this Victron model and any connection with ANITA please get in touch.

Raised back cover

As with the ANITA models, the rear aluminium cover slides up to allow the batteries to be replaced. In doing so it reveals the label which shows the details of this model.
