Xantrex launches a new Bluetooth remote panel
Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada – March 12, 2020 – (Marine NewsWire) Xantrex has just released a new Bluetooth remote panel for its popular FREEDOM X inverters and FREEDOM XC inverter/chargers. This new Bluetooth remote panel is compatible with FREEDOM X and XC products already installed on boats, trucks, RVs and other applications.
The new panel enables a user to monitor and configure a FREEDOM X inverter or FREEDOM XC inverter/charger via FXC Control app available on Google Play and Apple App Store. The easy-to-use app is great for users wanting to learn more about different configurations, parameters,
and options, and overall system status available from these popular products. The app displays voltage, current and frequency from both input and output sources. The app shows fault and error codes when something is not right, for example an AC overload on the output side or a low battery voltage condition. The app also has the ability to send email feedback directly to Xantrex customer service.
“The best part is being able to view important system information on your phone or tablet, for example how many watts are being consumed or amps pushed into the battery. You can configure settings and change parameters from the comfort of your couch or bed or anywhere on a boat, RV or truck,” added Rob Heckenast, program manager at Xantrex.
The model number is 808-0817-02 and the list price is US$ 90. This product is in stock and available for shipping. More information here.

At this point (April 2020), the panel and the smartphone have to be re-paired each time the panel is powered up. It does not renegotiate upon power up. Very frustrating. Xantrex is apparently looking into this. Hopefully a future revision will solve this problem. For those who leave the inverter switched on 24/7, this is not an issue.
