Evolution of the E-Panel - Pg 8
E-Panels stack vertically right out of the box. This
vertical configuration also takes up the least amount
of floor space. Some people will want to stack two
inverters horizontally in order to keep things all
at eye level. You would need a left hand hinged door
for the left hand unit in this case. Each Left hand
hinged door also comes with a right hand charge control
bracket. You then will have a right and left charge
control bracket and will be able to mount two charge
controllers in between E-Panels as shown below.
The E-Panels are available in both the gray powder
coated steel as well as white powder coated aluminum.
Aluminum E-Panels will be popular in salt laden environments
like Hawaii. One of the only options to the E-Panel is a left hand
hinged door. This door will be used when stacking
two inverters horizontally. Hinges open like an old
Lincoln Continental with suicide doors.
Two other options are available from MidNite. A 63
amp 125VDC breaker is available to use as charge controller
disconnects input and output. (MNEPV63). A DC-GFP assembly
is also available for roof top mounted
solar in order to comply with NEC. Present day NEC
requires this device only when Photovoltaic panels
are installed on the roof of your dwelling. Future
code will require this device on all installations.
The MidNite DC-GFP will help take the sting out of
this requirement due to lower cost.

there is good access to everything.
