Xantrex Launches Sophisticated H.A.L.T. Safety

Press Release Aug 09, 2012

VANCOUVER, B.C., July 10, 2012 – Xantrex Technology has launched its own comprehensive internal quality testing system which it has applied to all product platforms, christened “H.A.L.T.” for Highly Accelerated Life Testing.

As an IS090001:2008 registered company, Xantrex products are all put through the rigors of independent laboratories testing. However, Xantrex has chosen to further invest heavily in its own safety, quality and reliability procedures to ensure that its products meet or exceed all required standards, with the goal to ultimately improve product reliability and performance.

The H.A.L.T. product evaluation process takes place in a special environmental chamber, which allows the Xantrex quality team to rapidly overstress product in harsh operating environments. Products are subjected to extreme thermal and vibration stress environments including combination of thermal and vibration stress cycles. The data from this evaluation is used for deep safety and quality analysis and subsequently used to rectify any potential software, firmware or hardware design and manufacturing issues that may creep up in extreme conditions outside of product specifications.

“At Xantrex, we conceive, design and test our products in house,” said Spyros Thomas, Xantrex Vice President of Quality & Customer Service. “We take product safety and quality extremely seriously and firmly believe that having our own internal quality and safety protocols such as those regimented by H.A.L.T. helps us produce the best, most reliable products for our highly valued customers. We believe our own internal H.A.L.T. gives us a distinctive edge in the fiercely competitive AC power products market.”

Xantrex power products are used by a broad mix of consumers and businesses for a variety of recreational and commercial purposes. Whether used aboard a boat or RV, for modern mobile applications involving sophisticated and sensitive electronics, or for commercial fishing vessels, heavy duty work trucks, ambulances or military vehicles, having a dependable AC power source and onboard power system is critical for successful, uninterrupted operation.

“We will continue to reinvent our safety and quality processes to ensure that we test and build our products to the highest standards in the industry,” added Thomas.
