Xantrex Technology, a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, announced that Webasto Product North America selected the company's inverter/chargers to power its marine air-conditioning systems.

The Webasto FCF-DV 5000 and FCF-DV 9000 air conditioning systems are now available with the Xantrex Freedom HF or the Xantrex IP1012 Weatherproof Inverter/Charger.

The IP1012 model features certified ignition protection and is used when the Webasto system is installed in a gasoline engine room or compartment susceptible to moisture. The Freedom HF, a compact and lightweight inverter/charger, is the perfect complement to Webasto's quiet and compact system.
