The MidNite Solar MNCLIP4KAC Clipper is designed as a 4 kW AC dump-load for 3-phase wind and hydro turbines and work with the MidNite Solar Classic to charge your battery. The Clipper communicates with the Classic to slow the turbine when the batteries are full, and also contains a stand alone, self powered, adjustable max-VOC limiting circuit. The MNCLIP4KAC has a rectifier build-in to provide DC for the charge controller.

The AC Clipper is designed to work with 3-phase AC turbines, specifically those with a 3-4kw maximum. The AC Clipper can be purchased with a resistance value of 0.4, 1.0, 1.6, or 4.0 ohms per phase. Please select the correct type from the list, the resistance value is the last part of the type code.

Generally speaking if your turbine has larger than a 10-foot rotor diameter and/or is rated for 2.5KW or more you may need more than one clipper. Please consult MidNite tech support in that case.
