Another Classic. Like the gold standard Classic 150, the MidNite Classic 200 is a sophisticated solar, wind, or hydro MPPT charge controller designed to support nominal battery system voltages up to 72V. But unlike the Classic 150, this controller is designed for up to 200 DC volts input and 79 amps output.
Features. The Classic 200 offers an impressive set of features including free wireless data monitoring, built-in DC ground fault protection and arc fault detector, and distinct solar, wind and hydro operating modes. Also ships with MidNIte's battery temperature sensor (the WhizBang Jr. current sensor module is sold separately). For more detail on MidNite Classic 200 features, please see the additional documents below.
HyperVOC One particularly unique feature of MidNite Classics is HyperVOC. HyperVOC allows Classic charge controllers to extend their maximum open circuit voltage (Voc) limit when needed. For example, the Classic 200 has an input voltage rating of 200 Voc. If the Classic 200 is connected to a 48 volt battery bank, the HyperVOC voltage limit will be: 200V + 48V a total of 248 Volts that the Classic can manage. Why is this helpful? Because a system's voltage could creep past the normal Voc limit on a really cold morning. See this Midnite document explaining HyperVOC here.
Warranty. The Classic 200 comes with a standard 5 year warranty against defects, during which time MidNite Solar will repair or replace the Classic at no charge to the consumer during this 5 year period. In addition, MidNite Solar continues to offer their pioneering extended warranty. Customers can ship their Classic 200 to MidNite during the final 6 month period of the standard 5 year warranty together with a check for $147 and MidNite will replace any wearable items and perform a general tune-up. This will also extend the Classic 200's warranty by 2 additional years. Click here to see the latest info on the Classic 200 warranty.
