Xantrex heavy-duty inverter/chargers are available as an option on International 9000i Series tractors from International Truck and Engine Corp. This inverter/charger transforms DC voltage from a truck's battery to household electricity so drivers can have the comforts of home while on the road. It also charges a truck's battery when connected to a 120-volt power source.
The inverter/charger provides 1,100 watts of continuous power and 3,000 watts of peak power. When connected to “shorepower” at a truckstop, terminal, or at home, all 12-volt DC and 120-volt AC loads run off the inverter/charger, while it simultaneously charges batteries using a three-stage charging algorithm. To protect batteries from excessive discharge, the inverter/charger features an integrated low-voltage disconnect system.
