Schneider Electric is a leading worldwide producer of Inverters and chargers for renewable energy systems and backup power applications. Featuring the Xantrex GT Series Grid-Tie Solar Inverters, Xantrex XW Hybrid inverter-chargers series and the Prosine brand inverters-chargers. Schneider and Xantrex power some of the largest, and smallest, solar installations in the USA.
GT Series Grid-Tie Solar Inverter
Xantrex single phase GT Series inverters convert photovoltaic (PV) electricity produced by solar modules into utility-grade power used by the home or sold to the local electrical utility. Available in 2.8kW, 3.3kW, 3.8kW, 4.0kW and 5.0kW models, the GT Series offers high efficiency (up to 95.5% CEC), clean aesthetics, 240 & 208 volt operation, high reliability backed with a 10-year warranty, compact size, and an NEC compliant integrated DC/AC disconnect. The GT Series may be installed as a single inverter, for a single PV array, or in a multiple-inverter configuration for larger PV arrays. Standard 10-year warranty.
XW Hybrid Inverter-Charger
The XW Hybrid Inverter/Charger is 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 grid- independent, the XW can operate with generators and renewable energy sources to provide full time or backup power (includes 60A transfer relay). 5-year warranty.
XW Power Distribution Panel (XW PDP)
The XW Power Distribution Panel with conduit box is factory-wired and labeled to support a code compliant single inverter installation. Internal wiring and breakers can be added to expand the system to with up to three inverters, four charge controllers or other equipment to support larger systems, including three phase. Comes with an XW Conduit Box.
XW Solar Charge Controller (XW SCC)
The XW Solar Charge Controller tracks the electrical maximum power of a PV array to deliver the maximum available current for charging batteries. It can be used with 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 volt DC battery systems. For a complete product description turn to page 77. Two controllers can attach to the right side of the XW-PDP.
XW Connection Kit (XW Connection)
The XW Connection Kit is a wiring kit and conduit box used to connect additional inverters into an XW Power Distribution Panel. The wires for a second inverter are pre-cut and labeled to facilitate easy installation. Longer custom-made cables for a third inverter must be supplied by the installer.
XW Conduit Box (XW Conduit)
The XW Conduit Box is a bare conduit box (no wires) that can be used to create systems larger than two inverters or to retrofit XW Inverters into existing systems which may already have AC/DC disconnects.
XW System Control Panel (XW SCP)
The XW System Control Panel is a XanbusTM-enabled device featuring a graphical, backlit LCD screen that displays system configuration and diagnostic information for all devices connected to the network. When installed as an XW System accessory, the XW SCP eliminates the need for separate control panels for each device and gives a single point of control to set up and monitor an entire XW Power System.
XW Automatic Generator Start (XW AGS)
The XW Automatic Generator Start is a XanbusTM-enabled device that can automatically activate a generator to provide an XW Series Inverter/ Charger with power to recharge depleted batteries or assist with heavy loads. Compatible with popular generators, the XW AGS adds intelligence to power management and eliminates time spent monitoring batteries and inverter loads.
Xantrex Communication Gateway
The Xantrex Communication Gateway bridges the gap between a Xantrex GT or XW System and the system owner’s computer, making it the central component for a residential or small commercial remote monitoring system. The Gateway logs performance data directly from the Xantrex GT or XW System, and transmits it to the included YahooTM Widget based monitoring software for a simple and graphically rich view of system performance. The Gateway offers a web page with the ability to configure automated email reports and fault status to the user or installer. The Gateway includes both built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity allowing for flexible and simple set up for wireless or wired connection to a router or direct to a PC.
Trace Series - TR
The Trace Series Inverter/Charger is an economical power conversion solution designed to provide dependable modified sine wave electricity to essential circuits in the home or business during a power outage. It can also be used in conjunction with a generator or any renewable energy source in an off-grid application. 2-year warranty.
Offering quality true sine wave output, the Prosine inverter is ideally suited for electrical systems that already have a quality multistage battery charger. Designed for recreational and industrial applications, its output is capable of handling both heavy duty and smaller, multiple AC loads. A removable LCD display can be mounted remotely for control and monitoring. The powersave mode draws only 1.5 watts under no load, < 22W - idle. CSA listed to UL-1741, UL-458 and CSA 107.1. Operating temperature range: 0°C to +60°C. All models are 120 Vac - 60Hz single phase output. 2-year warranty.
Prosine inverter/chargers deliver clean true sine wave output power for all types of appliances along with three-stage charging (compatible with all battery types). Inverters include a full function remote control panel and built-in transfer switch. CSA/NRTL certified. All Prosine models CSA/NRTL listed to UL-1741, 458. AC output @ 120 Vac - 60Hz single phase. 2-year warranty.
The Prosine 3.0 has a no-load drain of approximately 60 watts and <3W in search mode. The remote on/off switch can be used so that these inverters are only powered up when needed. Temperature sensor optional on these models. The Prosine 2.0 has a no load drain which is consistent to most sine wave inverters on the market and it only draws 20 watts of power to operate and <2W in sleep mode. It includes the temperature sensor and a remote LCD control module/status display. All models are fan cooled and intended for AC hardwire connections.
