Product Description


    The US-built Midnight Classic is a trend-setting, sophisticated MPPT solar controller with a host of features. It is available in 150, 200, and 250 volt versions, and will accomodate nominal battery voltages from 12 to 72 volts. System efficiency is typically 98%, with a standby draw of 4 watts or less. All Midnight Classics are solar, wind, and hydro capable, and can be connected together for greater output. 

    The built-in display allows setup and monitoring of the controller, and displays up to a year's worth of historical data - including graphs. The Midnight Classic also connects to the Internet via Ethernet cable or an external wireless bridge, and Midnight hosts a free web-based portal so that you can monitor your Classic remotely. Or, you can monitor on your local network using a PC.

    Midnight Classics feature Hyper-VOC, which reduces the chance of damage to your controller on cold mornings when solar panels are coming online with excessive open circuit voltage. The controller will handle the rated voltage plus the battery voltage (up to 48 volts) without putting out any current. As soon as the voltage drops to the rated level, the controller will resume normal operation. This allows you to use higher PV voltages since the margin of safety is expanded for start-up voltages.

    Midnight Classic versus Classic Lite. The Classic Lite has the same controller features as the Classic, but does not have the built-in display or the Arc Fault Detector. It can be configured with DIP switches, and does have network connectivity. When creating a bank of controllers, one Classic can control the connected Classic Lites, for significant cost savings.

    The Midnight Classic has a 5-year warranty.
