The MidNite Classic 150 charge controller is the most versatile on the market today. In 2011 NEC required that charge controllers be equipped with arc fault protection. the Classic is the first MPPT controller that has standard arc fault protection making the Classic the safest available of our customers as well as fire departments. The Classic MPPT charge controller is the controller all the other equipment manufactures wanna be. With a amp rating from 63 to 96 amps, why would you look elsewhere?

Primus AIR 40 is an excellent choice to provide energy for off-grid homes because it is quieter, more efficient, and precision engineered to deliver more energy at lower wind speeds than any other wind generator in its class. The AIR 40 uses a new microprocessor based technology that results in an increase in performance, battery charging capability, and reliability. Additionally, "flutter" noise from the machine has been reduced. The controller allows for peak-power tracking of the wind by optimizing the alternator's output on all points of the cubic curve and efficiently delivers the energy to the battery. The turbine's smart controller allows it to actually control blade rotation speed thus eliminating the buzzing noise commonly found with most small wind turbines.

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.

magnum shipModified sine wave inverters may not run: Laser printers, photocopiers, and anything with an electrical component called a thyristor; Anything with a silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR) like those used in some washing machine controls; Some laptop computers (Apple Products can be particularly fussy about their energy source); Some fluorescent lights; Some new furnaces and pellet heaters with microprocessor controls; Digital clocks with radios; Appliances having speed controls; Medical equipment should not be power with modified sine wave inverters. Because the total harmonic distortion is higher in modified sine wave inverters, you may hear a buzzing from your stereo system and you might see lines on your TV screen.

hybrid kits

Choose the off-grid battery option that best fits your needs. The size of the battery bank you choose depends on the amount of power you require (Watts), the amount of time each day you expect to run your appliances, equipment and lights, and your location or available sunlight. As a rule-of-thumb, when considering batteries off-grid, use 3 days of autonomy (No Sun) as a minimum and 50% depth of discharge for your battery bank.

Primus Tower Kits (Options)made america

 

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 parts 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).

**Freight Shipping is Dock to Dock

magnum inverters magnum power center

In circumstances where we have to ship by freight, free or otherwise, that means dock to commercial dock (not residential) to any of the lower 48 states. If the customer does not specify a local commercial dock that is available, we will ship to the nearest terminal where the shipment will be held for will call pick up by the customer. If you choose to have your order shipped to your residence, most orders require special handling for unloading and the pallet has to be transferred to a truck with a lift gate. In most cases, truck freight companies do NOT require their drivers to unload shipments. An additional "Residential" as well as a "Lift Gate" special handling fee will apply if the driver unloads the merchandise to the curb at your residence. The special handling fee is $89.00 and is available at checkout. If you have selected this add on service, the shipping carrier will call and schedule delivery of your solar kit, (provided the weight and dimensions of the product fits the criteria for lift gate service). You can avoid the residential and lift gate fees by arranging a "Will Call" pickup at the closest freight company terminal. In that case, you will need a pickup truck, a copy of the bill of laden, and a photo ID. When you arrive at the freight company terminal, the freight company will load your order into the bed of the truck with their forklift. The most common pallet size = 65" X 44" (Height depends on Product). Be sure and check for hidden damage.
