Xantrex Technology Inc. released its second generation Freedom HF Inverter/Charger to the North American commercial, RV and marine markets.

The new Freedom HF features easier installation and more efficient battery management. It features a 1000W model with a 55A charger for large battery banks that may demand powerful charging output, in addition to the upgraded 1000W/20A and 1800W/40A models.

One enhancement is a quick-connect AC terminal block on both AC input and output for wiring and installation, eliminating the need for strain relief clamps. Another feature is the ignition lockout that disables the inverter when the ignition is turned off, minimizing battery drain. GFCI and hardwire options provide flexibility for easy plug-in directly on the unit, or hard wiring connections for AC power.

All models are certified to meet UL458 for mobile applications and FCC, Class B requirements for better EMI performance.
