This regulator can be used with dump loads that are up to 2400 watts. Ideal for systems that have several wind generators or a combination of wind and solar.
Wind generators need to always have a load on them to prevent overspeeding. By using a diversion regulator you can keep the batteries from overcharging while still pulling power from the wind generator. These regulators can also be used with solar panels. This allows you to use the excess power from your solar panels instead of wasting your peak hours of sunlight.
It acts as a switch to turn on your diversion load (dump load) when the voltage of the batteries are getting high. The regulator will switch on somewhere between 13-13.9 volts and will turn off again at close to the same voltage. This works for either 12 volt or 24 volt systems as long as you are using 6 volt or 12 volt batteries.
You can use 12 volt lights, 12 volt water heating coils, 12 volt heaters, or any other 12 volt device with this regulator. If you are using a 24 volt system you will need a 24 volt diversion load. Do not exceed 50 amps in a 12 volt diversion load or 25 amps in a 24 volt diversion load. These regulators can be used to dump up to 600 watts.
When using this type of diversion regulator you can still use the power from the batteries even while the regulator is on, your wind generators and solar panels will still continue charging the batteries at the same time.
