About product

MidNite Solar Classic 200 controller has MPPT modes for solar, wind, or hydro. Power curves are user-adjustable. Includes a learning mode for self-optimization. Accommodates solar arrays with operating voltages up to 200 VDC. Offers features including arc-fault detection (not currently listed to UL 1699B) and Ground Fault Protection (GFP) which makes a separate GFP breaker assembly unnecessary.


  • HyperVOC protects the controller when open-circuit voltage exceeds the operating voltage by a margin equal to or less than the battery bank voltage.

  • Can be stacked with other Classics to act as one large controller without a separate hub.
  • Built-in Ethernet, USB and RS-232 ports which allow two-way communication.
  • 32 MB of internal memory for data storage. The user can upgrade the firmware using downloaded files.
  • Sealing kit for protection from dusty or salt-air environments. Sealing can reduce output by up to 20%.
  • MidNite 300 VDC breakers are recommended for power-source voltages over 150 VDC. Make sure that the breaker fits into your DC power center, or use a separate MidNite Big Baby Box.
  • Two auxiliary relay outputs. AUX1 can be programmed to either be a 12 VDC output (200 mA max) or as a dry-contact relay (1 A max). AUX2 can either be a 12 VDC output, a logic input or a PWM signal output for diversion load control or for connection to a MidNite Clipper.

The Classic charge controller conforms to UL 1741 and CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 107.1:2001/09/01 Ed: 3 (R2006) and is covered by a 5-year warranty. Dimensions are 14.9" x 6" x 4", and weight is 11.5 lbs for all units. Made in the U.S.A.

Been using these for years. One of the best units out there. Outback used to be my favorite, but not any more. If you want the best wind controller, I recommend this model.

Following an outage last winter I decided to build a back up power system. I bought four used solar panels and this Midnite Solar controller. Installing the Classic is very easy once all the other elements are in place. It has an RJ45 connector for remote monitoring from any device on the network.

The best of the best! Has network capabilities... This CC is a piece of technology that creates real value to your off-grid applications. Has been my choice for more than ten years.

Сan I hook it up to 24v from solar to charge a 12v battery?

Can this charge a 72 volts battery bank?

Yes, it is compatible with 72 V battery banks.
How will the device behave if you over panel for full power on rainy days, meaning there would be too much energy on sunny days?

The manufacturer does not recommend exceeding 1.2 times the output of the controller.
