Midnite Solar Classic MPPT Charge Controller

Midnite Solar Classic MPPT Charge Controller – Quick Guide

This guide will facilitate an easy-to-understand selection process and will highlight the main features of each Midnite Solar Classic MPPT charge controller.

When Midnite Solar released the Classic, it was the most advanced MPPT charge controller of its class. Many years and thousands of installations later, that has not changed. The Classic controllers come in three sizes: 150V, 200V, and 250V, which allow larger PV strings and arrays.

Midnite Solar offers two series of Classic charge controllers: the standard version with all the bells and whistles and the SL model with fewer features but perfect for solar PV systems. Both models come in 150, 200, or 250 volts. Additionally, Midnite offers an online sizing tool to help you configure your PV strings.

All Classic Charge Controllers 

When selecting a Classic model, keep in mind that every model in each series has the same input and output values, and the design and size of your energy system will not change. Additionally, all Classics come with a 5 year limited warranty.

The Classic SL – Solar Only

Since most MPPT charge controllers are installed in solar power systems, Midnite Solar simplified the standard Classic controller to operate exclusively with solar panels. Some of the features found in the standard Classic were removed from the SL version to reduce the cost of the controller further. The Classic SL does not feature:

  • Compatibility with wind and hydro energy systems
  • Arc fault protection
  • Internet connectivity

The Classic Lite – Discontinued

The Classic Lite controller was released to make the Classic controller even more affordable by eliminating the graphics display and the arc-fault protection disconnect. However, this version of the Classic is no longer in production.
