Xantrex, which provides power solutions for RV, marine, work truck and specialty mobile applications, celebrates 40-years of operation.
Xantrex is known for its solutions for power conversion and battery charging in the mobile power industry, as well as having pioneered products like the inverter/charger for sleeper cabs, boats and RVs; the first weatherproof and waterproof inverter/charger; the first commercially available generator replacement solution; and the first backup power solution that operates with shore, wind, solar and generator.
“Xantrex is proud to be on the forefront of mobile power innovations as we celebrate 40 years in business,” said John Kalbfleisch, vice president and general manager. “We have a team of tremendously driven employees who strive to design, engineer and manufacture industry-leading technology for many years to come.”
One of the company’s newest solutions, Freedom eGen, features lithium-ion battery technology and is designed to provide power and eliminate the need for a generator or idling when the vehicle is parked. Solar panels are another popular product for Xantrex. The increased interest in solar has been seen in both recreational and commercial trucking applications.
“People are searching for ways to stay efficient yet cut down on emissions and fuel costs,” said Mitul Chandrani, vice president of marketing at Mission Critical Electronics, Xantrex’s parent company. “RV owners, fleet managers, utility companies, are turning to Xantrex for solutions on delivering power to critical on-board components and electronics without having to rely on engine idling or generator power. Xantrex can customize systems to fit their specific power needs.”
