Engineering & Technology
Xantrex Technology is a world leader in design, engineering and manufacturing of advanced power electronic products. Our products and solutions are used in a variety of low to high power applications in many different industries. We have a strong team of engineers for inhouse research, design and new product development. We possess over 100 innovative, new products globally. We were one of the first to manufacture and market high frequency inverters and portable backup power products.
H.A.L.T. (Highly Accelerated Life Testing)
A Xantrex Exclusive - New Benchmark in Product Quality
As an ISO9001:2000 registered company that prides itself on product excellence, Xantrex takes product quality and manufacturing testing to a higher level. We use an extremely effective product evaluation method called HALT to detect and address product design issues early in the development cycle.
Our state-of-the-art chambers deliberately stress products and expose flaws that may not cause failures in regular use until long after a product is sold. Xantrex engineers test the robustness of each electronic design in a HALT chamber under extreme thermal and mechanical conditions. This rigorous testing allows us to identify and correct subtle design problems. It also helps us more accurately predict how, when and where product degradation may occur and its anticipated life span. Why stress good hardware to such extremes? Our electronic products are used in a wide range of environments – from benign indoor settings such as homes and laboratories, to harsh outdoor areas where products are used in the engine compartment of a boat, mounted to the outside of a heavy duty truck, or installed onthe side of a building where high winds and rapid temperature changes are common.
Xantrex’s reliability engineers will simulate these conditions in the accelerated test lab to ensure our product designs are rugged enough to continue operating effectively even after being exposed to these kinds of environmental stresses.
Stringent Regulatory Standards
Xantrex certifies its products to comply with various regulatory testing standards to indicate that its products meet or exceed the applicable national and/ or international requirements for safety, quality, efficiency and environment.
We are committed to improving and upgrading our manufacturing processes to reduce its impact on the environment. Majority of our DC to AC power products have efficiency in the range of 90% to 95% meaning that they convert virtually all of available battery power into household power. Our inverter/charger systems in the heavy duty truck market have played a pivotal role in reducing idling of engines resulting in fewer emissions. Our new generation of portable and stationary power sources are compatible with solar and wind inputs.
