Xantrex’s utility truck inverter

Xantrex’s Freedom X 3000 Pure Sine Wave Inverter is rated at 3,000 watts and is engineered for use in service and utility trucks, cable vans, boom trucks and lift trucks to handle heavy motor loads such as air compressors. The inverter is built to handle two seconds of surge up to 6,000 watts when powering heavy loads and to do so at temperatures up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. It is designed to work with high-voltage alternators up to 18Vdc, and a 30A transfer relay allows shore power to pass through the inverter to power electronics and tools. An ignition control handles inverter operation via the vehicle’s ignition circuit and shuts off the inverter when the ignition key is turned off. The inverter is designed for easy installation and has quick-connect AC terminals for wiring; it can be hardwired or installed with an optional GFCI outlet for a truck with a large battery bank.
