Barcelona & Hawke's Bay Pass UL1741 Certification by ETL Today
« on: February 09, 2022, 10:15:23 PM »
Both the Barcelona and Hawke's Bay Charge Controllers have passed UL1741 Certification/UL Standards, and are now ETL & CSA approved/Listed. Mario still has a little fine tuning of his code for them, but all materials not on hand needed to begin building them have just been ordered.

There will be a posting soon concerning BETA units for those here on the forum. Actual production is set for April 2022. It's been a long road but here they come!!! :) Mario & Jeremy all smiles after completing ETL review.



I got the deluxe kit, it had a solar cell and a meter.

I'm also interested in the price range for the Barcelona and Hawke's Bay.  A finalized specification sheet would be great too.  Would like to add to my system and the idea of being able to avoid a combiner box while also enabling string or panel level shutdown is really appealing.

The Hawke's Bay and Barcelona did pass ETL, We are super excited about that. I think TJ may be more optimistic then the production crew though. Production in limited quantities is looking like mid to late May at this time. We are still putting a lot of moving pieces into the puzzle.

For pricing on the charge controllers, the retail price is as follows:
MNHAWKE'S BAY 120 : $1799
MNBCLNA : $2699

Sign me up for one, let me know when and if there is a deposit system in place to start making reservations.

Awesome news.  Congratulations.

If you need a Beta test just let me know.   ;D

Thanks,

Can the Hawke's Bay or Barcelona control a Classic charge controller via Follow Me?  It would be nice to be able to add panels and a Hawke's Bay or Barcelona to my system without having to replace the Classic hardware I have on existing panels.

That would require the MNCOMBOX-PRO but it is doable.
The software for the PRO is still a few years out.  Rumor has it it will be outsourced as we don't have a free engineer to assign the project to...

I'm working along on the MNCOMBOX-DIY
It's coming along slow as I'm partially blind until I get through eye surgery next week.  Then I might pick up the pace.  The DIY will hook up to Classics & our DIY series, the All-in-One Inverters and the DIY60 Charge Controller.

Thanks for the info on the MNCOMBOX-PRO for controlling a Classic with a Barcelona or Hawke's Bay.  The long time lag is unfortunate, at best.
