DOCUMENTATION (Manuals and other documents)
The KID Standard Version - MNKID-B or MNKID-W
The KID now includes AGS (Auto Generator Start)

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.

Available in Black - MNKID-B
Available in black. Photo above shows black version with wall mount bracket which comes standard.

With the UL458 marine supplement, THE KID meets very strict vibration, environment, and thermal requirements.

Comes standard with wall mounting bracket. Model number MNKID-B for the Black standard. Standard versions can be cut into the wall for a flush mount assembly and also come with a surface mount wall adapter to mount on the wall.

AGS (Auto Generator Start)
The Kid is the first charge controller in the industry to feature a two wire Automatic Generator Start (AGS) as standard equipment. The KID detects when the generator is running by simply watching battery voltage over time. No extra wires or voltage sensing is required making installation a snap.

Lighting Controller
The Kid has a fully adjustable intelligent lighting controller built in. It can turn lighting on at dusk for a select number of hours, turn it off for a length of time and then back on for a programmable number of hours before dawn. All time functions are fully adjustable, allowing users to save valuable energy. An additional feature in the lighting controller allows you to adjust the voltage needed on the PV module for the Kid to register "daytime". This is important if you are using the Kid for a solar street light and the lights are located above the PV modules. Most controllers would end up leaving the light off all night, but not the KID!


Solar only

The KID's HyperVOC feature allows up to 162VDC. (The KID will not be harmed by voltages between 150 and 162VDC (this is the HyperVOC range). The KID will remain in standby until the voltage is 150v or below.
