A basic off-grid system consists of a renewable
energy source, which generates DC power, a battery
bank that stores the DC power, and a Xantrex
inverter. Our inverter is the intelligent center
of a renewable energy system, seamlessly converting
DC power to clean and reliable AC electricity
for your needs.
The off-grid system pictured here is a solar
electric hybrid system that offers additional
automatic features. It consists of solar panels,
a battery bank, our top-of-the-line Xantrex SW
Plus Inverter/Charger, a charge controller that
manages battery charging, and a generator.
When the sun is up, the solar panels generate
power to charge batteries and provide electricity.
At night, the Xantrex inverter/charger automatically
runs your electrical equipment from your battery
bank. The generator provides additional back-up
battery charging capability for extended periods
of cloudy weather. The Xantrex inverter/charger
can automatically start the generator and initiate
a recharge cycle when the battery bank is depleted,
or a load is too large for the batteries to support
independently. You can even have a connection
to the grid should you want to use utility power.
Xantrex manufactures a complete range of power
products to suit various budgets and electricity
requirements. From complete power systems that
come ready to install from our factory, to components
that can be integrated into a system by one of
