Xantrex Launches Second Generation Freedom HF Inverter/Charger

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

The original Freedom HF series made its debut in 2008 as one of the lightest, smallest and most affordable inverters/chargers on the market. In keeping with the company’s continued commitment to quality engineering, innovation and customer satisfaction, the new Freedom HF was conceived, developed and is now available with customer-driven enhancements in the areas of ease of installation and efficient battery management.

The new Freedom HF now sports 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.

A top enhancement includes a quick-connect AC terminal block on both AC input and output for easy wiring and fast installation, eliminating the need for strain relief clamps. Another key feature is the ignition lockout which disables the inverter when the ignition is turned off. This helps to minimize unnecessary battery drain. In addition, GFCI and hardwire options provide greater flexibility for easy plug-in directly on the unit, or hard wiring connections for AC power.

Xantrex Director of Sales John McMillan indicates the Freedom HF series offers multiple advantages when compared to other brands, as well as to its best-selling predecessor.

“While the latest generation Freedom HF maintains the same winning DNA including its compact size, advanced features and affordability of the original Freedom HF, the additional new features sets it in a class all its own,” he said.

“The Freedom HF Series performed exceptionally well in its respective mobile markets in numerous operating environments, so with these new enhancements, we are confident in the future of this upgraded product offering. The launch of these new generation products stems from our commitment to quality and exceeding customer expectations,” he added.

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

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…
