The SL controllers from Midnite offer the full solar charging feature set of the original Classics, without the hydro and wind turbine control features; resulting in a drastically lower product price, with the same Midnite quality.
The MidNite Classic charge controllers maximize array capacity and layout flexibility more than other controllers in their class. These controllers also feature arc fault detection; as well as ground fault protection so that a separate GFP breaker assembly is not necessary. This allows for more breaker space in your DC box. There are three models available that accommodate solar arrays up to 150, 200, or 250VDC of operating voltage.
MPPT modes with user adjustable power curves are built in, along with a learning mode for self-optimization. No hub is required for stacking multiple units. They have two auxiliary outputs, a dry contact relay and a 12V output. Optional snap-on covers and hole plugs for sealing openings in dusty or salt-air environments are availabe from Midnite, using them in this manner reduces output by about 20%. Temperature sensor included.
Brian and Shawn at Backwoods both use MidNite controllers on their full time off grid residences.
With three Classic models to choose from, use Midnite's Power Charts to pick the best one for your application. By knowing your battery bank voltage, and the array voltage, you can determine the maximum array wattage that each model can support. Feel free to ask Backwoods or Midnite for assistance.
