Does anyone know of a 300-400 Watt inverter with MPPT?

I have an application for a max power point tracking (MPPT) inverter
but I only need about 300 Watts continuous, 120 VAC (square wave OK)
output. All I have been able to find are several KW and several $K as
well. My budget is a few hundred dollars.

Solar Converters in Canada make a line of MPPT controllers of varying
current capacities.

 Thanks for the tip, but I am aware of their products, and at this time
they do not make an inverter. I need 120 VAC output, not a DC/DC
converter to charge a battery.

But inverters are a dime a dozen. The 'system' is panel->MPPT
controller->battery->elcheapo inverter  This solves your problem as I
understood it.

The trick is to put the MPPT charge controller and elcheapo
inverter in a black box, add a couple of fuses and whatnot
and sell it for 10 times your cost as a "power center". :)
