All Magnum MS4448PAE-4 power systems supply split-phase 120 / 240 AC volt power for direct connection to your home 120 / 240 volt breaker panel or can be used off the grid. Multiple Magnum MS4448PAE series inverters are connect in parallel through the Magnum router interface. One Magnum MS4448PAE 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.

Pre-wired and pre-tested for 120 / 240 VAC / 60Hz applications, Magnum MS4448PAE-4 power systems have been specifically designed to combine all of the major components required for a high power home or off grid system. Magnum MS4448PAE power systems have all of the circuit breakers and controls right up front for convenience and easy code-compliance. Magnum MS4448PAE power systems includes a main DC disconnect circuit breaker to protect each inverter, inverter bypass breakers, and inverter input breakers as standard equipment. In addition, Blue Pacific Solar includes an optional DC input and output circuit breakers with each installed MidNite Solar or OutBack charge controller.

Your Magnum MS4448PAE 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 MS4448PAE 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 MS4448PAE 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.

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 (If you are adding solar or wind power). 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.

Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Pre-wired Power Center 120 / 240 Volts AC Pure Sine Wave Energy

Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center is solid-state electronic device that, when sized properly, can be used in nearly every solar and wind energy system that uses batteries. The Power Centers Blue Pacific Solar sells employ the latest in power electronics to regulate the battery charge by controlling the charging voltage and current from a solar panel array. Power Centers regulate the charge of the battery, but also prevent the battery from being over discharged which can damage the battery bank.

Off-grid or grid tied with battery backup, here is how the Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center basically works. For a grid tied battery backup, grid power comes into the Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center. If the backup batteries are fully charged, the power is then passed to the critical load or backup load subpanel inside the home. The Outback FlexPower power system is monitoring the sine wave of the grid, amps and volts. When the Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center detects changes outside the default parameters, it immediately begins to draw power from the backup battery system and pushes it to the critical load subpanel.

If you have solar panel system connected to the Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center, the power center will use the electricity produced by your solar panels to charge the batteries making Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center a great choice for home backup and off-grid systems.

Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center Power Center uses multiple stages of control to regulate different voltage and current levels. The voltage and current of a battery varies over the different stages of battery charge. Though the amount can vary, the bulk charge usually is approximately 80%, the absorption charge is 10% with the float charge representing the balance of the battery charging process.

The bulk charging stage of the Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center Power Center process is the first stage to used to bring the battery depth of discharge (DOD) back to 100%. The bulk charge stage happens first in in the morning after the batteries DOD has drained down since sunset the previous day. The bulk charging stage pushes as many amps into the battery bank as possible from the solar panels and gets the voltage up in the process. The effect of a Power Center is not unlike trying to fill a glass of water from a faucet. You first turn the faucet on full while the glass if filling, then slowly taper off the pressure until the glass is full. When the battery bank reaches a predetermined level known as the bulk voltage set-point, the charge is then substantially slowed. Because the bulk voltage set point is determined by the type of battery you are using, many Power Centers have to be pre-set to the type of battery which will dictate the rate of charge.

The second state of charge the Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center employs is the absorption stage. After a battery system has been brought up to the bulk voltage set point, the Power Center slows down the charge rate because the battery bank cannot accept the same rapid charging pace without overheating and damaging the battery bank. At the absorption stage a battery bank is only about 80% full. The absorption charge is the function level in the process that tops off the battery bank. During the absorption stage, the Power Center holds the battery volts constant and reduces the amount of current sent into the battery. When the absorption stage is complete, the battery bank is fully charges.

The final step the Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center performs is the float charge. Typically a charge controller enters into a float charge state when the other charge levels of the battery bank has been achieved. When the number of peak sun hours is limited, a solar Power Center may not be able to get the battery bank back to the float stage before the next cycle begins.

Each Magnum MS4448PAE-4 Power Center comes pre-wired with inverter, optional charge controller all mounted on a rack ready to power up. You simply have to finish connecting into your battery bank and wire to your breaker box or subpanel. Simple, easy, fast.
