MidNite Solar’s CLASSIC LITE Controller allows you to demand superior performance for any solar system. The Classic Lite offers superb classic performance with outstanding affordability and a pulse pounding output up to 96 amps. The Classic Lite’s HyperVOC Technology affords more voltage headroom than any other charge controller. In clear cold weather your panels may possibly output higher voltages which can exceed the voltage capacity of your controller. HyperVOC Technology will provide an additional layer of protection that will aid in the preservation of your system in clear cold weather conditions. No other MPPT controller offers protection from exceeding the voltage capacity, in fact exceeding the voltage capacity in the competitors units will void your warranty.

The Classic Lite has six LED lights that indicate its mode of operation, these include current limit, ground fault, bulk, absorption, float, equalize and resting. In addition the user friendly dip switches can be used to select the appropriate voltage for your battery banks and equalization voltage and etc.. The Lite also affords 380 days of daily data logging which can be viewed on your PC via the local network or by using the optional MNGP (graphic display panel). Simply install the MidNite Solar classic application from the included DVD or our web site and connect the Lite controller to the network via the Ethernet port.

MidNite MNBCM voltmeter battery capacity meter. This meter was designed to keep batteries alive longer. Features:

  • Led’s that correspond to battery voltage
  • Accuracy +- .05%
  • Auto sensing for 12, 24, 36, and 48 volt batteries

MidNite 1560W Off-Grid Micro Kit

NECIMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS: 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 load center or inverter 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 load center or any other electronic gear. Always disconnect the batteries or energy source prior to installation or performing maintenance on the system. Live power may be present at more than one point since an inverter utilizes both batteries and AC electricity. Turning off the inverter may not reduce that risk. Always verify proper wiring prior to starting the inverter. Do not operate the inverter if it has been damaged. Always read and follow the manufactures installation and operating instructions for the MidNite 1560W Off-Grid Micro Kit prior to installation and operation.
