Xantrex Freedom XC Inverter/Charger now a factory option on Volvo and Mack trucks

The pure sine-wave inverter/charger is now available as a factory option on Mack and Volvo sleeper models.

Xantrex has announced that its Freedom XC 1800W pure sine-wave inverter/charger is now available as a factory option on Mack and Volvo sleeper models.

Xantrex says that the 1800-watt Freedom XC converts DC power into the “cleanest” AC power available. “Sine wave is the same power as you get at home – meaning the voltage is consistent without spikes or drops,” said Mitul Chandrani, vice president of marketing for Mission Critical Electronics, the parent company of Xantrex. “That’s an important distinction, especially when operating sensitive medical devices, such as CPAP machines, and induction devices such as microwave ovens or appliances that use magnets or transformers.” 

According to Chandrani, the Freedom XC has 4,000 watts of surge power for a two-second duration. “That’s a welcome sight for truckers who want to use power tools and other initial high-draw devices,” he said. “If you don’t have enough surge power, a high draw device will shut down the inverter.”

The unit has an 80-amp built-in three-stage battery charger, and a 30-amp relay, which can sense the change in the power source and transfers the load.

The Freedom XC comes with a display panel that is mounted in the sleeper, showing AC and battery current; and is UL458-certified. It works with both traditional batteries and lithium-ion batteries.
