The marine division of Xantrex Technology, a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, announced a new corporate direction for its marine markets.

According to Xantrex general manager Richard Gaudet, the marine division of Xantrex has heavily invested in the research and development of state-of-the-art sine-wave power solutions for both marine OEM and aftermarkets.

As a result, Xantrex is consolidating its product line in the on-board power category, which includes inverters and inverter/chargers. Xantrex is also strengthening its TrueCharge2 lineup of compact battery chargers with the addition of a new 60-amp model in January.

"We are in the process of replacing our older products with newer, more technologically advanced and much more cost-efficient products," Gaudet said in a statement.

"Based on our research, we believe the demand for on-board utility-grade power has increased significantly, due to the proliferation of sensitive electronics and appliances that require pure sine-wave power for smooth operation," he added.

Xantrex is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, with facilities in the United States, Germany, Spain, India, and a joint venture in China.
