The Birdhouse provides a safe means for homeowners or firefighters to disconnect high-voltage PV arrays from ground level.
The Birdhouse works in conjunction with MidNite Disconnecting combiners (MNPV-DISCO). Install the Birdhouse up to 500 yards away from the combiner(s) and at ground level. Hard wired connection via 600 volt Cat 5 USE-2 cable gives positive feedback that disconnection at the PV array has been opened and made safe.
Note: If using the Birdhouse for just shutting down a battery-based system breaker without a combiner, you must use the MNFX-CABLE. For the Birdhouse to work with your disconnecting combiner, you will need MidNite Solar's Power Supply Board (MNDISCOPSB).
