Xantrex expands TrueCharge2 battery charger offering

Xantrex Technology added three new 24V models to its TrueCharge2 battery charger line. Developed for commercial applications, the new 24V chargers - models 10A, 20A and 30A - are designed to charge transit buses, power carts and commercial construction equipment.

Xantrex Technology has added three new 24V models – 10A, 20A and 30A – to its top-selling TrueCharge2 battery charger line to complement its existing portfolio of 12V battery chargers that includes models ranging from 10A to 60A. Developed for commercial applications, the new 24V chargers are designed to charge transit buses, power carts and commercial construction equipment, according to the company.

In addition, an upgraded design feature of the TrueCharge2 line includes the capability for “parallel stacking,” which allows two chargers of either 12V or 24V configuration to work together to combine the output current, achieving up to 120A for large battery banks. All TrueCharge2 models use the same remote control panel, and accept 90-265 Vac & 47-63 Hz for global applications. The maker added each meets stringent safety and regulatory standards including UL1564, UL1236 with marine supplement, ABYC and FCC Class B requirements.

“The TrueCharge2 battery charger series is one of our most advanced and successful product categories in the marine market,” said Xantrex director of sales John McMillan. “We have incorporated the new parallel stacking feature to provide a wider range of power levels for our customers.”

Just like its 12V counterparts, the new 24V battery chargers are housed in an efficient, compact design and deliver intelligent charging for a fleet’s DC system, Xantrex added.
