This MidNite Magnum MNEMS4448PAECL150 is an advanced electronic device that takes DC (Direct Current) voltage from your batteries and turns it into both 120V and 240V AC (Alternating Current) voltage, which is needed to power your household electrical appliances (i.e. AC loads). The E-panel power center comes standard with the MidNite Classic 150 charge controller. MidNite Classic charge controllers are the most powerful MPPT charge controller on the market today. With the Classic you have built in arc fault protection and full internet capability with remote displays. ETL listed the Classic is made in America. All installations must comply with national and local electrical codes; professional installation is recommended. The NEC in the USA requires a DC ground fault interrupter for all residential PV (Solar) installations. NEC2011 requires an ARC FAULT detector on all charge controllers and inverters operating above 80VDC. Both of these devices are built into the Classic.

The MNEMS4448PAECL150 power center also includes a inverter battery charger circuit that takes AC power (When connected to your utility OR generator power) and transforms it into DC power to recharge your batteries from the inverter while the Classic 150 is charging the batteries from the solar array.

Magnum inverters are installed on the MidNite MNE175STM-L -240 white steel E-Panel (MidNite Magnum MNEMS4448PAECL150 power center) which include 1 Magnum MS4024PAE inverter / charger (Depends on 24VDC or 48VDC), ME-ARC50 remote display, a MidNite Classic 150 charge controller for up to 18 panels and two Classic 150 controllers for systems with more than 18 panels, WBjr current sense module for Classic provides the battery state of charge. 2 MNEDC panel mount breakers 175 amp Battery Main Breaker, DC-GFP built into the Classic, Arc Fault Detector built into the Classic, 3 MNSPD (Surge Protection Devices), 1 MidNite BTS (Battery Temperature Sensor), 1 Magnum BTS. Additionally, we supply (installed by others) 1 MidNite Solar, circuit breaker, DIN Mount, 30A, 2-pole, 120/240VAC, UL1077, MNEAC30-2P for additional AC out protection.

Available in 4024 (24 volts; 4000 watt output) and 4448 (48 volts; 4400 watt output) watt models, the Magnum MS-PAE Series inverters are powerful, easy-to-use and ETL listed to the stringent requirements of UL 1741 and CSA C22.2 No. 107.1-01 for renewable energy installations. MidNite Magnum MNEMS4448PAECL150 power centers are a superior choice when you need a fully integrated, true sine wave, reliable 120V/240V power system. Power Center Warranty 5 Years, Solar Panel Warranty 25 Years.

Primus Air Small Wind Turbines; AIR wind turbines allow you to harness the wind's energy to charge an off-grid batter bank. The best-selling small wind generators in the world, AIR turbines are great for remote cabins, and other remote platforms. The AIR wind turbine incorporates a three-phase brushless permanent magnet alternator and integrates microprocessor-based charge controller to optimize its power production capability. The microprocessor continuously adjusts the loading of the alternator to keep the turbine operating efficiently in most wind regimes.

The AIR 40 in these hybrid solar kits provides energy for off-grid homes or cabins with modest energy needs and have average annual wind speeds under 15 mph. It has a bare aluminum finish for use in non-corrosive environments, so it is not suitable for marine use. Rated power: 160 W at 28 mph (12.5 m/s). CSA Listed for the U.S.A. Primus AIR 40 weight is 13 lbs., has a 46" rotor diameter (11.5 ft2 swept area) and mount on a 1.5" Schedule 40 steel pipe (1 7/8" [48 mm] outer diameter (Not included in base kit, see options)). Made in U.S.A. All AIR models have a 5-year limited warranty.

MidNite Solar's Stop Switch allows you to stop an AIR wind generator and disconnect it from the battery, all in one motion. The MN-Stop Switch comes with a neutral busbar and ground box terminal. Rated for wind turbines up to 63 amps at 150 VDC. Enclosure size: 9"H x 5"W x 4"D. Weight 3 lbs. ETL Listed for the US and Canada.

Canadian Solar panels ranked among the highest efficiency panels in the industry bringing customers the value of more energy production.

Primus Tower Kits (Options)


AIR tilt-up tower kits are available as hardware kits (not including the tower pipe) in 27' (8.1m) and 45' (13.5m) heights, and in a 29' (8.8m) EZ Tower™ kit that includes the pipe for the tower. All towers use a 4-guy-wire set-up, and are assembled on the ground with the wind generator and tilted up into place.

The 27' and 45' tower kits come with all the hardware necessary to install a tower, except guy-wire anchors, pipe, and concrete. All partsmade america bolt or clamp together and no welding is required. Purchase 1-7/8" steel tubing from a local chain link fence supplier (for up to 90mph at 27', or 70mph at 45'), or use 1.5" Sch 40 Galvanized water pipe (1-7/8" OD and up to 120mph at 27' and 90mph at 45'), to build the tower. These tower kits include a simple elbow/tee for its basethat, when combined with a short length of pipe, eliminates the need for a concrete pad, a base plate and a swivel for the base of the tower. Two people are required to erect one of these towers, but no winches or vehicles are needed.

The 29' EZ Tower™ kit comes with all the parts you'll need, including Galvanized tubing, cable and hardware. This tower uses lightweight tubing while providing plenty of strength to withstand winds up to 110mph. Two people can easily erect the EZ Tower™ without winches or vehicles. The EZ Tower™ includes a simple yet effective tower base and anchoring system which eliminates the need for a concrete pad. The kit comes with guy-wire anchors that are driven into the ground (depending on the soil conditions, concrete may be necessary for proper guy anchoring). Ships via UPS anywhere in one 74' (1.9m) box weighing 80lbs.

AIR towers are PE stamped and approved for the California buy-down program. Contact us for wet seal stamps (additional cost).
