MidNite Solar is an innovative manufacturing company that started by making high-quality, cost-effective AC and DC disconnect boxes for the alternative energy industry. Now, MidNite produces a wide range of alternative energy products.
A new line of MidNite products being developed is the MNB17-F5 and the MNB17-F3. The MNB17 series is one of the most advanced modular battery-based inverter/charger systems ever devised.

THE KID MPPT CHARGE CONTROLLER
Now ETL listed to UL1741, CSA 22.2 and UL458. This may be the only MPPT controller listed for use on marine craft and RV's
The KID is the most versatile medium sized charge controller on the market, ideal for small renewable energy systems. The KID allows for true input paralleling. As your power needs grow, add more modules to the array and a second KID. This will give twice the power from a single array.
The KID's HyperVOC feature allows up to 162VOC . (The KID will not be harmed by voltages between 150 and 162VDC (this is the HyperVOC range). However the KID will remain in standby until the voltage is 150v or below.)
