Schneider Electric XW-AGS Automatic Generator Start Control

The Conext XW Series hybrid inverter/charger has an innovative, integrated design that minimizes external balance-of-system components allowing for quick and easy installation as either a grid-tie battery backup system or a fully off-grid power system. The XW offers split-phase 120/240 VAC output from a single inverter. Up to 4 inverters can be paralleled for up to 24 kW of total output in a 120/240 V split-phase system, or operate in a 208 VAC 3-phase configuration with up to 2 inverters per phase (6 inverters total) for up to 36 kW of power. The XW inverters can be converted to 120 VAC only and 3 inverters can be configured into a 120/208 VAC three-phase system. Charge controllers, such as the Schneider Electric XW60-150 or the XW80-600, are required for use with any PV array.

Dual AC inputs enable AC generator input as well as grid interaction. An optional automatic generator start (AGS) unit is also available. A configurable auxiliary relay with an output of 250 mA at 12 VDC is included in each inverter.

The inverter display panels’ LEDs indicate AC-in status, faults/warnings, equalize mode, and battery state-of-charge. A three-character LCD display indicates output power or charge current. A battery temperature sensor is included with each inverter, but only one is needed per system.

The Power Distribution Panel includes a conduit box and all AC/DC disconnects with wiring to support a single inverter. The distribution panel has enough space and knockouts to add up to 3 inverters and/or 4 charge controllers. A field-reversible door with a magnetic catch simplifies access to wiring.

Each charge controller requires the input breaker and output breaker.

The XW Connection Kit contains everything needed to add a second inverter. For a third inverter, use one Connection Kit plus a pair of 5-foot 4/0 inverter cables, with lugs on each end.

An external transfer switch will be required to enable the inverter bypass function. For four inverters, use two Power Distribution Panels and two Connection Kits. Use the XW conduit box to retrofit XW inverters into existing systems that already have AC/DC disconnects.

The XW System Control Panel plugs into the Xanbus network and provides a central user interface to configure and monitor all components in the system. One is required per XW system. The Communications Gateway can be used to connect the XW to a PC or laptop.

The inverter is field-serviceable on the wall.
