WFCO Introduces WF-9500 Series Power Center at RVIA Trade Show

Tue Dec 5, 2017

151249234960892.jpgWFCO Electronics, leading power supplier to the RV Industry, showcased its new WF-9500 Series Power Center at the company's booth during the National RV Trade Show in Louisville last week.

According to an announcement from WFCO Electronics, the WF-9500 Series Power Center can manage more power loads in a smaller, easier to install package. Power load capability is boosted for large RVs with 50-amp AC service and 17 DC circuits to support many 12V power loads simultaneously. Today's RVs are packed with slide-outs, appliances, electronics and Bluetooth-enabled accessories, so OEMs are increasingly needing more power and more circuits to manage these demands.

The WF-9500 Series is a drop-in replacement for existing 50A power centers, but with a zero-clearance, front ventilation system so there is no wasted air space around the unit, the company says.

Other exclusive WFCO features include:

  • Availability in 40, 60, or 80 Amp DC models

  • Triple LED display for safety and diagnostic info

  • Battery Guardian brand 3-stage charging

  • Choice of three DC circuit connection modes

  • AC input voltage monitoring
