29 Oct 13. Originally launched 16 years ago in 12V configuration and then re-engineered in early 2010 with pure sine wave technology, the best-selling Xantrex Freedom SW series of inverters/chargers continues to thrive and evolve, enjoying strong consumer demand in both recreational and commercial markets. Building on the amazing success of 12V models, the all-new 24V models represent a logical line extension, embodying all of the premium qualities that built the Freedom name.
“The new 24V models deliver a great mix of clean AC power, rapid charging performance, a wealth of features … all at a very enticing price,” said John McMillan, Director of Sales, Xantrex brand at Schneider Electric. “The demand for these new products is very high with a plethora of orders already in our system. We are an engineering company at heart – the rapid evolution of the Freedom SW is a testament to our passion of refining and developing new products and technologies.”
Designed for use in large boats, RVs, buses, commercial trucks and other heavy-duty applications, the new Freedom SW 24V is ideal for powering a demanding mix of AC loads and charging large 24V battery banks. The Freedom SW 24V, available in 2000W/50A and 3000W/75A models, incorporate pure sine wave performance and advanced features including parallel and series stacking and generator support mode. Parallel stacking allows for system expansion by enabling two units to work in synergy to provide up to twice the rated current and charging output. Series stacking enables operation of 240VAC applications such as a dryer, water pump or welder. Generator Support Mode enables the Freedom SW to automatically supplement a generator when AC loads exceed the generator’s capacity. In addition, a myriad of built-in features enable users to customize the performance to suit their specific needs. The Freedom SW offers full output at higher temperatures and features efficient, power factor corrected charging. Just like its 12V counterparts, the 24V models have been thoroughly tested in Xantrex’s internal Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) chamber under extreme conditions to ensure the highest degree of reliability, and are specified to meet CSA, UL 458 with marine supplement, FCC Class B and ABYC requirements. Both models are in stock and available to aftermarket and OEM partners.
Merlin Power Systems are leaders in the design and manufacture of advanced generation, management and monitoring of power systems on vehicles and marine platforms. Being fielded in UOR, Green and SOF fleets combined with 20 years of experience in critical use battery applications make Merlin the perfect partner for your vehicle, mobile or remote power system.
MOTS products include:
DataCell – The industry’s most accurate battery monitoring system provides volts, amps, amp hours, state of charge, state of health and time remaining. Being highly accurate DataCell information may be used for auto control of battery management, APU starting and load shedding. Data displayed on a variety of panels and/or direct C4i screen integration.
VBMS – Vehicle Battery Management System manages the entire primary power system on board. Remote battery switching, split charging, flat battery protection, control of import/export power, APU start/stop and load shedding. VBMS dramatically improves platform reliability, platform running costs (in replacement batteries and fuel savings by carefully managing engine run times & alternator output) and importantly allows confident extension of silent watch running times which dramatically improve
