MidNite’s breakers are rated to break the full rated load at the rated voltage repeatedly, with NO DAMAGE. Always use a properly sized breaker for disconnecting. 80 or 100 amp Din rail mount breakers are suitable for protecting PV output circuits and charge controller output wiring.
DIN-mount breakers fit MidNite Solar and Magnum Energy enclosures, and MidNite Solar and OutBack Power PV array combiners. These breakers are polarized, so the positive wire from the power source needs to be connected to the “+” side of the breaker. The maximum PV array voltage must not exceed the voltage rating of the breakers used.
- All MidNite circuit breakers can be used at 100% rated current when mounted in a MidNite enclosure.

MNEPV breakers are the same as CBI QY breakers except the standard used is inadequate for the solar industry. MidNite breakers have been evaluated by ETL to 150VDC and are listed for US and Canada. All of the NRTL listings still apply. Breakers ordered under the CBI part numbering system will not be listed for 150VDC and in many cases are not suitable for the solar industry. Trust MidNite!
