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.

**Freight Shipping is Dock to Dock

magnum inverters

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.

off-grid kit

980 watt off-grid solar kit diy energy systems stand alone do-it-yourself home, cabin kits

All Magnum MS4024 power systems supply split-phase 120 AC volt power for direct connection to your home 120 volt breaker panel or can be used off the grid. Multiple Magnum MS4024 series inverters are connect in parallel through the Magnum router interface. One Magnum MS4024 inverter is designated as a master and is active continuously, while the remaining slave inverters are maintained in "idle mode" for low power consumption. As more energy is required, the slave inverters "wake up" progressively to meet the demand. This power center is perfect for on grid and off-grid applications because it greatly improves overall efficiency and keeps power consumption to a minimum.

Your Magnum MS4024 power system comes standard with the ME-RTR router controller (See Document Tab). The ME-RTR router is needed to interface with 2 or more Magnum MS4024 inverters, and also gives you advanced control and monitoring of the power system. The controller has user friendly buttons and knob that gives you an easy to read menu system. You do not need an additional remote control unit to operate the power system, but if you want remote monitoring and control capability, an optional remote control can be located up to 150' away from the power center (50' cable included) to provide Magnum MS4024 power center monitoring and limited control at a more convenient location. The Magnum ME-BMK battery monitor kit is included to supply easy to access information about your battery state of charge, voltage, real-time amps, etc. This is a quality built and certified power center that because it is installed in a Magnum panel extends the inverter warranty to 5 years.

 building code compliance

NOTE, IMPORTANT 980 Watt Off Grid Solar Kit INSTALLATION: (OK, here is the scary legal disclaimer.) It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all products are installed and operated in accordance with local and national building codes as specific by the NEC (National Electric Code), UBC (Uniform Building Code) or IBC (International Building Code) and local utility company policy. These codes may vary from city to city and county to county. All off-grid solar installations should be permitted and inspected, where required, by  the local inspection authority in the same manner as other equivalent electrical systems. One last thing. It is always a good idea to contract with a local licensed electrician to at least do the final electrical connection of your 980 Watt Off Grid Solar Kit from the AC disconnect to your home utility breaker box. Some local permitting authorities require that a licensed electrician do all the wiring from the rack to the utility interconnect. If you need help with the permitting documents for your 980 Watt Off Grid Solar Kit package, we are here for you. Solar permit service add on is available at checkout.
