Inverter/chargers

Post by Tex Hill » Sat Oct 12, 2013 6:53 pm

What is the difference between the Xantrex Freedom 458 and the Xantrex Freedom SW2012 ?
I see the technical difference in the catalog, but will it connect to the electrical system of my old SW 2012 with out wire changes?
Will the 458 wire connections be the same as the older SW 2012?

hi,

typically the physical wires in & out will match. the bigger issue is whether the inverter "sees" itself as a monitor between the ac in and ac out or just a pass thru. we replaced a xantrex 2500w (just was a pass thru) with a victron (was a monitor). both worked but what they did was different.
