magnum shipMagnum inverters are on-grid but will not export excess power. Inverters can use either the utility grid or fossil fuel generator to recharge a battery bank in conjunction with the MidNite Classic 150 charge controller.

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.

stand alone 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.

**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.

midnite classic IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: (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. This product is designed for indoor or protected compartment installations. DO NOT expose the power center to rain, snow, moisture or liquids of any type. Use insulated tools to reduce the chance of electrical shock or accidental short circuits. Remove all jewelry such as rings, watches, bracelets, etc. when installing the MidNite Magnum Power Center or any other electronic gear. Always disconnect the batteries or energy source prior to installation or performing maintenance on the MidNite Magnum Power Center inverter. Live power may be present at more than one point since an inverter utilizes both batteries and AC electricity. Always verify proper wiring prior to starting the inverter. Do not operate the system if it has been damaged. Always read and follow the manufactures installation and operating instructions for the Magnum 490 MNEMM1524AECL150 MidNite e-panel Off-Grid Kit prior to installation and operation.
