Xantrex brings the next generation of inverter/charger to market, with the XW Hybrid Inverter/Charger, the heart of the XW System. The XW Hybrid Inverter/Charger (XW) is a true sine wave, 120/240-volt AC, split-phase, inverter/charger that incorporates a DC to AC inverter, a battery charger, and an AC auto-transfer switch. It is the foundation for battery-based residential and commercial solar applications up to 18 kilowatts (kW). Capable of being grid-interactive or grid-independent, the XW can operate with generators and renewable energy sources to provide full-time or backup power.

Designed with consultation and input from industry experts, dealers, and installers, the XW sets a new standard for battery-based inverter/chargers. Integrating the best features available in the market, innovative new features by Xantrex and balance-of-systems components, the XW Hybrid Inverter/Chargers design makes installation quicker and easier. The XW offers high efficiency and unprecedented surge capacity to maximize the owners return on investment. No other inverter/charger looks or performs like the XW.

First one blew up
Brad (Boca Raton) 4/11/2011 8:58 AM
After hoisting this monster up onto it's mounting bracket, we connected 48 volts DC and got a loud buzzing and error code. Then it popped and smoked. Sun Electronics in Miami refused to take it back despite a valid RA #. Had to threaten them. Finally got another one and it worked for 4 days. Now won't turn on. No lights no nothing. Looks like Tinkerbell is dead.
