The Quattro inverter charger connects to two independent AC sources, for example shore power and generator. The Quattro will automatically connect to the active source.
MultiPlus vs Quattro
The MultiPlus and Quattro products play a central role in both AC and DC systems. They are both powerful battery chargers and inverters in one box. The amount of available AC sources is the deciding factor when choosing between the Quattro and the Multi. The big difference is that a Quattro can take two AC sources, and switch between them based on intelligent rules. The MultiPlus can take only one AC source. Furthermore, should you require an output of higher than 5000VA you would need to select the Quattro.

System Operation - Victron Quattro
The Quattro employs two AC inputs - shore power and generator. Either input can bring power into the Quattro. The generator input has priority over the shore power input. When either the shore power or generator input is active, power is transferred through the Quattro to AC outputs 1 and 2. If no input power is available, the invert provides power only to ACout1. ACout2 then is reserved for loads that are only powered up from the Genset or Shore power.
Note that when power is available from the inverter, input power sources are completely isolated and an MEN connection is made internally between Neutral and Earth. When either Genset or Shore power is active, the MEN link is inherited from the external power source.
If the load demand on the output is greater than what the shore power or genset input can provide, a programmable Power Assist function can borrow power from the inverter to increase the total available power. If a small generator was running, this "generator support" capability is ideal for handling higher startup loads that would otherwise stall the generator - for example air conditioning systems.
