Inverters and Inverter/Chargers
Pure Sine Wave
Outback FX and VFX Sine Inverter/Chargers (1.3kw – 30kw) Outback makes only pure sine wave inverter/chargers in sealed and vented configurations from 1.3kw and 3kw. Up to 10 Outback inverters can be stacked in parallel and three phase for power output as high as 30kw. The sealed units are great for corrosive or wet environments. The vented units are identical inside, but ventilation allows them to produce approximately 50% more power. The latest addition to the line is the 1300w GFX, with all the VFX functions, but at an attractive price point. Outback manufactures in the USA and is owned by former Trace Engineering staff.
Xantrex TR Series Modified Sine Inverter/Chargers (1.5kw – 2.4kw) The Trace TR series is the latest version of the pioneer DR inverter/chargers. The TR features improvements like a power-factor corrected charger and a digital display with controls built into the unit. The DR was legendary for simple, reliable performance with huge surge capability and the TR is proving to be the same. Xantrex, a part of Schneider Electric, manufactures these units in China with design and engineering support in Canada.
Xantrex XW Sine Inverter/Chargers (4kw – 18kw) The XW is the successor to the popular SW series, but with much greater capability. They can be stacked in parallel and three phase and can be networked together or with the XW solar controller or generator start module or to a gateway to the internet with IP compatibility. In terms of power and features, this is the premium inverter/charger that we offer. Xantrex, a part of Schneider Electric, manufactures these units in China with design and engineering support in Canada.
Victron Phoenix Inverters (185w – 5kw) These inverters do not have chargers, but are good for applications that only need inverters. They are pure sine wave units and all but the 750w units are transformer-type. Victron inverters are made in China and India by a Dutch company that has been in the inverter business for many years.
