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.

This picture shows the installation of Din Rail mount breakers. Notice that
there is good access to everything.
