The Studer Xtender series of inverter/chargers are the most sophisticated and powerful on the market. They are unmatched in terms of capability due to their many programmable functions. In a basic application, they offer the functions of a power inverter, battery charger, fast transfer system and using inverter power to provide Smart Boost assistance to any mains input.
Swiss Made Quality and Performance
The functions can be combined and controlled automatically for exceptional ease and optimum management of the available energy. Its programmable auxiliary contacts and remote command feature also permit interconnection with existing systems or the implementation of extended ‘consequential’ functions. This allows us to use an Xtender within any mains power system to create a more powerful Hybrid System.
The Studer Xtender is fully programmable by means of the RCC remote control which has features making it the source of an amazing amount of system data for diagnostic evaluation. It also enables software updates thus making the Xtender an upgradeable product, to which new functions may be added later on.
Through the implementation of several units, it is possible to create a 3-phase source or to set them in parallel, in order to increase the power available. Up to 9 Xtender series inverter/chargers can then be combined together.

Hybrid Power System
Hybrid systems are those that have more than one type of power generation and usually have a method of storing surplus energy. The primary generator output is mains (230VAC) and the stored energy is created by charging a battery bank (the service battery bank). The secondary power generation is usually DC power from the engine alternator and maybe renewables in the form of solar panels charging the same battery bank.
The stored energy is used directly as DC power to power lights and pumps as normal, but also supplies the power inverter to create 230VAC. Normally, this inverted 230VAC supply would only be available as an alternative source of 230VAC when the generator is not running or the vehicle is not connected to mains. In our case the system has a special feature; the inverted 230VAC can be added to the available 230VAC(from generator or mains hook-up) to create a supply larger than the available mains or power inverter alone. This is ideal for short periods of high demand which would normally require the use of a bigger generator (or cause the mains breaker to trip). A big generator may not fit or would spend most of its life running at a low load which is not good, however more importantly, it would not be as efficient as a hybrid system.
The key component is the Studer Xtender inverter/charger, as it can parallel (join together) the output of the generator with the inverted output of the domestic batteries. As an example, a Panther 6000 working in combination with a Studer Xtender 2000 and a 200Ah AGM battery bank, will give continuous power of 6kVA and temporary (approx 20-30 minutes) supply of 8kVA. Varying the size of the battery bank and Xtender will give various total power outputs and periods that this power is available. The functions can be combined and controlled automatically for exceptional ease and optimum management of the available energy. Its programmable auxiliary contacts and remote command feature also permit interconnection with existing systems or the implementation of extended ‘consequential’ functions. This allows us to use an Xtender within any mains power system to create a more powerful Hybrid System.
