Xantrex Supports IYRS Educational Initiative
Xantrex Technology has become a sponsoring partner of the IYRS, a marine trade and technology school offering full-time accredited programs in boat building and restoration, marine systems and composite technology.
With campus locations in Newport and Bristol, R.I., IYRS students training for a marine-industry career will now enjoy a hands-on opportunity to work with the latest onboard AC power technology, thanks to the new Xantrex partnership and donations including two complete Freedom SW inverter/charger systems.
Clark Poston, IYRS Vice President of Industry Development, said, “Our IYRS programs are experiential learning based and delivered in state-of-the-art labs with the latest equipment and technology. IYRS relies on the continued support of industry partners like Xantrex to equip these labs with modern equipment and technology … IYRS marine systems students now learn about fuse types, AC safety, charging algorithms, system sizing, remote monitoring and other technical features. By installing the Xantrex Freedom SW system into their electrical panels, students calculate load capacities, learn sign wave form and ABYC installation specifications.”
Students will be taught a variety of technical onboard AC power applications using the highly advanced Freedom SW Series. The best-selling Xantrex Freedom SW Series of inverters/chargers is the preferred power inverter/charger of choice in multiple industries including marine, RV and commercial service vehicle markets.
