Introduction
Chapter 1, “Introduction” contains information
about the features and functions of the Xantrex
TR Series Inverter/Charger.
Introduction
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Xantrex TR Series Inverter/Charger from
Schneider Electric. The Xantrex TR Series is one of the finest inverter/chargers on
the market today, incorporating state-of-the-art technology and high reliability.
The inverter features an AC pass-through circuit, powering your home
appliances from utility or generator power while charging the batteries. When
utility power fails, the battery backup system keeps your appliances powered
until utility power is restored. Internal protection circuits prevent over-discharge
of the batteries by shutting down the inverter when a low battery condition
occurs. When utility or generator power is restored, the inverter transfers to the
AC source and recharges the batteries.
The front panel features indicator lights and a user interface display for reading
system status, and controls to customize the inverter settings for your battery
bank.
The Xantrex TR Series is an economical product designed to provide a reliable
supply of electricity to all the essential circuits in the home or business during a
power outage. The critical loads can be powered for hours or days, depending
on the size of the system battery bank. When utility grid power returns, the
batteries are quickly recharged to ensure they will be ready to supply backup
power during the next outage.
Accessories allow the Xantrex TR Series to also serve as a central hub of a
renewable energy system.
Modified Sine
Wave Power
The Xantrex TR Series provide a modified sine wave output which operates most
AC appliances and equipment.
Battery Charger/
AC Transfer Relay
The inverter/charger includes a 3-stage battery charger designed to recharge
batteries in the shortest possible time. Once batteries are fully charged, the
Xantrex TR Series will go into standby mode to reduce the energy draw from the
utility. The built-in, fully automatic AC transfer relay automatically transfers power
from the utility to the inverter and handles a maximum rating of 30 A of current at
120 Vac or 15 A of current at 230 Vac.
Simplicity
The Xantrex TR Series is simple to operate. All inverter and battery charger
controls are located on the front panel.
High Efficiency
The inverter/charger operates at over 90% efficiency through most of its power
range in Invert-mode.
Low Power
Consumption
Xantrex TR Series uses less than 2 watts of power while in standby mode and in
search mode, it consumes less than 4.7 watts of power.
Power Factor
Correction
The Xantrex TR Series is power factor corrected to reduce power loss and
maximize efficiency.

Introduction
AC Side
The AC side of the Xantrex TR Series has one breaker for pass-through AC input
(30 A max and 15 A max for 120 Vac/60 Hz and 230 Vac/50 Hz models
respectively), which protects the internal pass-through relay and wiring from the
AC output to the user-installed branch circuit breaker. There is also a second
breaker for charger AC input (30 A max and 15 A max for 120 Vac/60 Hz and
230 Vac/50 Hz models respectively), which protects the internal charge relay and
the components on the AC filter board. The breakers are rated for the maximum
charge rate and pass-through current allowed according to the rating of the
internal relay. Appropriately sized branch-rated circuit breakers must be installed
directly on the AC output circuits to protect output circuits and wiring. Consult
your local electrical code for selection of these branch-rated output circuit
breakers.

Service Control Interface Item Description
Search Mode Potentiometer
Use a small jeweller's style flat-head screwdriver to adjust the current
threshold required to bring the inverter out of search mode into full
inverter operation.
With search mode enabled, the inverter minimizes energy consumption
by pulsing the AC output looking for an applied load, rather than
remaining at full inverter operation when there is no load. Disabling the
threshold by setting the potentiometer fully counter-clockwise to the
Defeat setting causes the inverter to remain on (in full power operation)
even when there is no applied load.
See “Setting the Search Mode Threshold” on page 2–9.
Battery Bank Capacity Selector/ Use a small jeweller's style flat-head screwdriver to adjust the
Charge Current Control
potentiometer to match the Ah of your battery bank. The setting allows
the inverter to calculate the over-discharge protection values and also
the transition criteria between Bulk, Absorption and Float stages of
charge mode.
The potentiometer should be adjusted as close as possible to the
actual capacity of the battery bank for optimum charging. If your bank
is greater than 1000 Ah, then set the potentiometer to 1000 Ah.
When set at 200 Ah or above, the charge current control is
automatically at maximum. For settings between 30 Ah and 200 Ah, the
charge current is linearly determined between 14% and 100% of the
maximum charge rate.
Important: If using dual inverters configurations, set each charger for
half the value.
CAUTION: Equipment damage
Batteries requiring different charging voltages than the Xantrex TR Series
provides may be damaged if used with this unit. Cross-reference the information

Operation
Over Discharge Protection (ODP)
Over discharge protection shuts down the inverter at a specified voltage (low
battery cutoff) to protect the batteries from over discharge damage. ODP is
automatically enabled on the Xantrex TR Series unit. The inverter circuitry
calculates the lowest (safe) DC voltage (leaving approximately 30-40% battery
capacity) based on the position of the Battery Capacity Knob and the amount of
load current on the inverter’s output. With a higher load, the inverter’s calculation
decreases the low cutoff. With higher battery capacity, it increases the cutoff.
Under no-load conditions, this level is typically between 11.8 and 12.0 Vdc (for a
12-volt battery bank).
Figure 2-4 Automatically Calculated Discharge Cutoff Voltage per Cell
In the event of a low battery warning (), the ODP may be temporarily disabled
by pressing the ON/STANDBY switch. This enables the unit to continue functioning
until the batteries reach the default low battery threshold or until the user
manually stops inverting and charges the battery.
CAUTION: Battery damage
Allowing a battery to reach the default low battery threshold is not recommended
and may damage the battery. Schneider Electric recommends that if you disable
the ODP, you stop inverting and charge the battery before the  default low
battery warning.
If the Xantrex TR Series turns itself off (if the warning has progressed to a fault) or
if the user manually stops inverting, the ODP will be automatically re-enabled as
soon as the unit is in invert mode again. With ODP enabled, the Xantrex TR
Series will restart at a battery voltage of 12.5 V (12 V units) or 25 V (24 V units).
With ODP disabled, the Xantrex TR Series will restart at a battery voltage of
11.5 V (12 V units) or 23 V (24 V units).

Setting the Search Mode Threshold
To set the Search Mode Watts:
1. Remove the AC input source from the inverter. The inverter switches to
battery operation. Ensure all inverter supported appliances are switched
OFF.
2. Turn the potentiometer completely clockwise (to MAX).
3. Switch on the load which will trigger the inverter to full power. This could be a
lamp located in a convenient location if the power goes out. The light may
flicker as the inverter searches the line for a load. The invert mode indicator
light blinks 2-3 times a second, indicating the inverter is in Search Mode.
4. Slowly turn the potentiometer counter-clockwise (toward MIN) when the
proper setting is found, the lamp and the invert mode indicator light will
illuminate.
5. Turn the lamp OFF for a moment. The inverter should switch back to Search
Mode. Turn the lamp ON. Ensure the inverter comes out of Search Mode.
Adjust the potentiometer up or down as necessary.
Important: The Search Mode only activates when the unit is operating in invert
mode (from batteries) to prevent unnecessary battery discharge when electrical
power is not required. If the inverter is supporting loads that must constantly be
powered, turn the search mode OFF by setting the potentiometer fully counterclockwise (CCW) to the DEFEAT position.
Important: Some loads constantly draw power even though they are switched
OFF, such as TVs with instant-ON circuits, microwaves with digital displays,
VCRs. It is best to operate these devices from another circuit, install a switch to
turn these OFF completely or don’t use the Search Mode.
Important: When the Search Mode is used with series stacked inverters, only
120 Vac loads connected to the “master” inverter will bring the unit out of the
search mode.

Stacking Interface
Important: Only 120 Vac/60 Hz units can be used in a stacked configuration.
Whenever two Xantrex TR Series inverters are used in a series (stacked)
configuration, one unit (primary) controls the other unit (secondary). Which ever
unit is switched ON becomes the primary and automatically switches on the
secondary inverter and ensures the secondary’s output is 180° out of phase for
240 Vac operation. Both units can charge the batteries or provide battery backup
power during a utility outage.
To operate stacked inverters:
1. Switch on the inverter designated as primary or INVERTER 1 (L1).
2. The inverter designated as secondary or INVERTER 2 (L2) will automatically
turn on.
The inverter should be providing 120 VAC/240 VAC to the sub-panel.
The stacked inverter system is now ready for use.
Once stacked, the Xantrex TR Series units will operate the same as a single unit.
In the event of an error, both units will shut down and the individual unit with the
error will show the error code on the front panel display.
Remote Control
Xantrex TR Series are designed to operate with a XANTREX TR RS ON/OFF SWITCH
remote control unit. The remote incorporates a membrane switch with a single
red indicator light display combination to start and stop the inverter, and provides
overall system operating status. Refer to the manual shipped with the XANTREX TR
RS ON/OFF SWITCH for indicator light flash sequences and how to interpret them.
The remote control must be connected prior to switching the inverter ON;
otherwise, the micro-controller will not recognize (or respond to) the remote. If the
remote is not recognized, switch the inverter to STANDBY and then ON using the
inverter’s front panel ON/STANDBY switch.

Start-up
Start-up
Once the inverter is properly connected to the batteries, AC source, and loads
(using a sub-panel) the inverter is ready for operation. Recheck the controls and
ensure they are in the proper position. Recheck all wiring and ensure it is correct.
Starting the inverter:
1. Apply DC power to the inverter by switching on the DC disconnect circuit
breaker and then pressing the ON/STANDBY switch once. The inverter will go
through a self-test.
•
each of the indicator lights will flash in sequence
•
the cooling fan will turn on momentarily
•
the transfer relay will switch
•
the temperature sensors will be checked for open or short circuit
2. After the self-test the unit will start inverting.
3. Apply AC power to the inverter.
4. The inverter starts charging the batteries in the Bulk mode, indicated by the
Charge Mode indicator light illuminating orange. It takes about 15 seconds
for the unit to transition from invert mode to charge mode after the application
of qualified AC.
5. Using a true RMS AC voltmeter, check the output voltage of the inverter. This
voltage can be checked at either the AC terminal block or in the sub-panel
(between the line and neutral). The voltage should be approximately 120 Vac
(120 Vac/50 Hz models) or 230 Vac (230 Vac/60 Hz models).
6. Switch the AC disconnect circuit breaker to OFF. The inverter will go into
invert mode (if a sufficient load is applied to the AC output while in the search
mode). The Invert Mode indicator light will illuminate indicating the inverter is
active. The voltage on the AC output of the inverter will remain the same as
above (± 5% maximum) except ~104 Vac under no load conditions for power
savings or ~207 Vac under no load conditions for power savings for
230 vac/60Hz models. (Non-true RMS meters probably will not measure
accurately).
Important: If the inverter is in Search Mode and a sufficient load is not available
to bring the inverter up to full voltage, turn the Search Mode potentiometer fully
counter-clockwise to defeat the search function.
7. Reapply the AC power by switching the AC disconnect to ON. Allow the
batteries to fully recharge.
Important: The unit will not use renewable energy for AC output as long as AC
input (utility or generator) is available to the inverter.
975-0391-01-01

Operation
Charge Mode
3-Stage Charging Process
The charging cycle uses a 3-stage charging process to maintain the batteries.
Whenever nominal AC is present at the inverter’s input and the inverter is on, it
passes power through to the connected load and begins charging the batteries,
indicated by the Charge Mode indicator light.
Bulk Charge
Bulk charge is the first stage in the charging process and provides the batteries
with a controlled, constant current. The Charge Mode indicator light is illuminated
orange. Once the battery voltage rises to the bulk voltage threshold, the charger
then switches to the absorption mode.
Absorption Charge
Absorption charge is the second stage of battery charging and provides the
batteries a controlled, constant voltage. The Charge Mode indicator light is
flashing orange.
During this stage the current supplied to the batteries slowly decreases. When
the current equals the programmed return amps value (5% of the battery
capacity setting) set with the Battery Bank Capacity potentiometer, the charger
switches to the third stage–float.
Important: If there are DC loads connected to the battery, the current may never
decrease to the level to initiate the float stage. The inverter/charger incorporates
a timer circuit which starts counting when AC voltage is applied. The length of
time is variable based on the amp-hours of the battery bank connected. To
ensure that the charger does not stay indefinitely in the absorption charge mode,
the timer automatically switches to the float charge mode.
Float Charge
Float charge, the final stage of battery charging, maintains a charge to the
batteries for 1 hour as long as AC is present on the inverter’s input. Float
charging reduces battery gassing, minimizes watering requirements (for flooded
batteries) and ensures the batteries are in a constant state of readiness. The
Charge Mode indicator light is illuminated green.
After 1 hour at float charge, the Xantrex TR Series will transition to Standby Mode.
2–12
975-0391-01-01
Charge Mode
Standby Mode
The Xantrex TR Series will transition to the Standby (charger OFF) Mode after 1
hour in the float stage. In standby, the Charge Mode indicator light is solid green
and the display screen shows "---".
A new charge cycle will be initiated if the battery voltage drops below 12.5 Vdc
(for 12 V models) or 25 Vdc (for 24 V models) while in Standby Mode. You can
manually initiate a new charge cycle while in Standby Mode by pressing the
ON/STANDBY switch once, to transition the Xantrex TR Series to OFF, then pressing
the ON/STANDBY switch again.
If qualified AC power becomes not available while the Xantrex TR Series is in
Standby Mode, it will automatically transition to Invert Mode and begin taking
power from the batteries.
OFF Mode
You can manually transition the Xantrex TR Series to OFF while in Standby Mode,
Invert Mode or any stage of Charge Mode by pressing the ON/STANDBY switch
once. In OFF Mode, no indicator lights are illuminated and the display screen
shows "---" if qualified AC is present, or the display screen is blank if qualified AC
is not present.
In OFF Mode the Xantrex TR Series passes-through qualified AC voltage only; if
qualified AC power becomes not available while the Xantrex TR Series is in OFF
Mode, it will not automatically transition to Invert Mode. You can manually initiate
a new charge cycle or initiate inverting while in OFF Mode by pressing the
ON/STANDBY switch once.
Equalize Charging
Equalize charging is a special mode of battery charging. During use, the
battery's cells can become unequal in the voltage and current they can deliver,
which effects the run time. Equalizing stirs up the electrolyte, distributing the
acid, and removing the sulfate from the plates. Equalizing the batteries every
month or two (depending on usage) prolongs the life of the batteries and
provides better battery performance.
The Xantrex TR Series will enter a Bulk and Absorption cycle first, before
transitioning to Equalize Mode. Once the Xantrex TR Series transitions to an
equalize cycle, and until the equalize voltage (16.0Vdc/32.0Vdc) is reached, the
charging current is determined by the battery Ah set-point as described on
page 2–7. After reaching the equalize voltage, the equalize cycle will continue for
one hour equalizing batteries at a constant voltage (16.0Vdc/32.0Vdc). The
Charge Mode indicator light is illuminated solid red during Bulk and Absorption
of an equalize cycle and is flashing red during Equalize Mode.
If the batteries are successfully equalized, the Xantrex TR Series will switch to
Float Mode and continue with normal operation.
975-0391-01-01
2–13
Operation
If the equalize voltage set-point is not reached within an hour of the equalize
cycle starting, the Xantrex TR Series will switch to Float Mode and continue with
normal operation while displaying the Failed to Equalize Warning (). This
code is only a warning that never transitions into a fault mode. It is active until it is
cleared by pressing the ON/STANDBY switch once. If the Xantrex TR Series fails to
equalize the batteries, try another Equalize Cycle and if it fails to equalize again
check and replace your batteries as needed.
CAUTION: Explosion Hazard
Only unsealed or vented batteries should be equalize charged. Only flooded
batteries (not gel/AGM batteries) can be equalized. Since Hydrogen and oxygen
gases are produced when equalized, provide adequate ventilation and remove
all sources of ignition to prevent explosion. Remove DC loads while equalizing as
they can be damaged by the higher battery voltage.
To transition the Xantrex TR Series to Equalize Mode:
1. Remove all DC loads connected to the batteries.
2. Ensure the Battery Type Selector switch is set to flooded (see Figure 2-3 on
page 2–6).
3. Remove all battery vent caps.
4. Check the battery water level, it should be just over the top of the plates (do
not overfill). Use only distilled water for filling batteries.
Important: Recheck the water level after equalize charging and refill if
necessary.
5. Press the Equalize Mode pin-hole type switch for at least 5 seconds, using a
paper clip or something similar, to put the Xantrex TR Series into equalize
mode.
If another equalize cycle is required after equalization has finished, press the
Equalize Mode switch again for 5 seconds.
Important: See the Schneider Electric website for the Application Note titled
“Battery Banks for Inverter Systems” for additional information on battery care
and maintenance.
To cancel Equalize Mode:
1. Press the Equalize Mode pin-hole type switch for at least 5 seconds, using a

Troubleshooting
Problem Loads
The inverter can drive most loads, however, there are special conditions that can
cause a load to behave differently than expected. The following describes some
of the common problems encountered when using an inverter.
WARNING: Fire Hazard
Transformerless Battery Chargers are not to be used with any model of the
Xantrex TR Series Inverter/Charger family. Connecting a transformerless battery
charger could result in a overheating condition and possibly a fire.
Ceiling Fans
Most large diameter, slow turning fans run correctly, but generate more noise
than when connected to utility power. High speed fans tend to operate normally.
Cell Phones
Some cellular telephones experience interference in the form of a clicking sound.
Computers and
Sensitive
Electronics
Some computers and sophisticated electronics have power supplies that do not
present a load until correct line voltage is available. When this occurs, each unit
waits for the other to begin. This can usually be solved by plugging in an
additional load (such as a lamp) to bring the inverter out of its search mode or by
changing the search mode potentiometer to a lower set point or setting it to
defeat.
High starting surge for heavy loads will cause the inverter’s output to dip during
load start-up. Avoid using sensitive electronics, such as computers, during
heavy load start-up.
Consumer
Electronics
AM radios tend to pick up inverter noise, especially on the lower half of their
band.
High starting surge for heavy loads will cause the inverter’s output to dip during
load start-up. Avoid using sensitive electronics, such as computers, during
heavy load start-up.
Clocks
The inverter’s crystal controlled oscillator keeps the frequency accurate to within
a few seconds a day; however, external loads in the system may alter the
inverter’s output waveform causing clocks to run at different speeds. There may
be periods where clocks keep time and then mysteriously do not. This is
because most clocks do not draw enough power to trigger the load sensing
circuit. In order to operate, especially with no other loads present, the inverter’s
load sensing circuit will have to be defeated. Refer to the Operation/Search
Mode Watts.
Decreasing Loads
If the amount of power a load draws decreases after it has been switched on
(such as with a small motor) and its current draw becomes less than the load
sensing threshold, it will be turned alternately ON and OFF by the inverter. This
can usually be solved by plugging in an additional load (such as a lamp).
3–8
975-0391-01-01
Problem Loads
Dimmer Switches
Most dimmer switches lose their ability to dim the lights when used with an
inverter and operate only in the fully ON or OFF position. Newer, microprocessor
controlled dimmers tend to work better in inverter applications.
Fluorescent Lights
Some devices cannot be detected by the inverter’s load sensor and will not
operate. Small fluorescent lights are the most common example. This can usually
be solved by plugging in an additional load. Also, try turning the lamps AC plug
over.
Heavy Loads
If the battery bank cannot deliver the necessary amperage to drive a heavy load,
the inverter will shut OFF. The battery voltage will then slowly rise back above the
low voltage threshold causing the inverter to resume operation. As soon as the
heavy load draws the batteries down, the cycle will continue unless the load is
reduced or an additional source of power is added.
High starting surge for heavy loads will cause the inverter’s output to dip during
load start-up. Avoid using sensitive electronics, such as computers, during
heavy load start-up.
Microwave Ovens
Microwave ovens are sensitive to peak output voltages. The higher the voltage,
the faster they cook. Since the inverter’s peak output voltage is dependent upon
battery voltage and load size, the microwave’s cook time may need to be
increased.
Printers
Most inkjet type printers work well in inverter applications. Laser printers,
however, require high current for their fusing circuit and are not recommended for
use with an inverter.
Rechargeable
Devices
When first using a rechargeable device, monitor its temperature for 10 minutes to
ensure it does not become abnormally hot. Excessive heat will indicate that it is
incompatible with the inverter.
Undersized Loads
If the power consumed by a device is less than the inverter’s search mode
circuitry threshold, it will not run. This can usually be solved by plugging in an
additional load such as a 100 watt light bulb.
CAUTION: Equipment Damage
Some products can be damaged when used with modified sine-wave power. If in
doubt, check with the product’s manufacturer.
