The MidNite Solar Surge Protector MNSPD is a Type 2 device. It is designed for both AC and DC systems and provides protection to service panels, load centers or where the Surge Protection Device is directly connected to the electronic device requiring protection. Maximum protection will only be achieved if the Surge Protection Device is properly installed.
The MidNite Solar Surge Protector is offered in three different voltages to maximize the required protection level. Protection is achieved by reducing the clamping voltage to a safe voltage that your system can sustain without damaging any electronics in the system. The MidNite Solar Surge Protector voltage rating should be chosen according to the nominal voltage of the system. Response time is 8/20µs to clamp 128,000 amps. There are two LED's in each unit that will indicate when the unit is functioning correctly and there is voltage to it.
Install the 150V DC (No AC) version for surge protection on wires coming from a 12, 24, or 48 Volt PV array, DC wind generator or DC hydroelectric turbine.
Install the 300VDC (120/240 Volt AC) unit for DC sources up to 300 Volts.
Use the 600VDC (480 Volts AC) unit for high-voltage grid-tie PV arrays.
The MidNite Solar Surge Protector can be installed in a combiner box, DC load center or grid-tie inverter. The MidNite Solar Surge Protector can be used on your AC load center to protect your equipment from surges from the utility lines and on AC wiring running outside of the building, to generators, pumps or outbuildings. It mounts easily in a 1/2" knock-out.
