Midnite Solar 1,500 Watt AC Turbine Clipper 0.8 Ohm MNCLIP1.5KAC0.8
|The MidNite Clipper is designed to control Wind or Hydro turbines and work with the 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 AC Clipper is designed to work with AC turbines and was designed for up to 1.5kw maximum turbines. The 1.5K AC Clipper comes standard with 2 ohms of resistance per phase. We can custom build other resistance values upon request and have designed an easy to change resistor insert for the Clipper allowing changes in the field.
The AC Clipper contains two 277 VAC 50 Amp 3 phase AC breakers (one for a stop switch) and a 1200 volt 200 Amp 3 phase bridge rectifier.
The Bergey XL1 uses the 1,500 watt 2 ohm’s per phase Clipper
The 1,500 watt AC Clipper comes in several different resistance values. The standard values available are 0.8 and 2.0 ohms per phase. Please contact Customer service for help picking the correct resistance or if you need a value not listed.
|| 1,500 watt AC Clipper for wind or Hydro designed to work with the MidNite Classic. The Clipper comes in different resistance values per phase to allow you to tailor it to your specific turbine.

The Clipper protects charge controllers and other electronics by sensing the incoming voltage from the turbine and using its internal loads as needed to hold down the incoming voltage to a value that you set. When used with a Classic MPPT charge controller, the Classic uses its auxiliary output to control the Clipper to provide optimum performance. The internal load should be sized according to the turbine that it is used with to provide adequate braking, but not overload the turbine. When the slider on the side of the Clipper is in the stop position the input voltage (DC or Three Phase) is held to zero volts through 50 amp circuit breakers to provide emergency braking
