Xantrex XW HybridXantrex 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 applications up to 18 kilowatts (kW). Capable of being grid-interactive or gridindependent, 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/Charger’s design makes installation quicker and easier. The XW offers high efficiency and unprecedented surge capacity to maximize the owner’s return on investment. No other inverter/charger looks or performs like the XW.
