THESE 5 INDUSTRIAL RESISTORS ARE MOUNTED ON A GALVANIZED. STEEL PLATE AND ARE USED AS A DIVERT LOAD FOR WIND TURBINES. A DIVERT LOAD KEEPS YOUR WIND TURBINE FROM FREE WHEELING WHEN YOUR BATTERIES ARE FULL. FREE WHEELING IN HIGH WIND CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR.
RATED AT 125 AMPS, 1500 WATTS FOR 12 VOLT BATTERY BANKS. This divert load resistor is for use to divert the excess power being generated when your wind turbine generator batteries are full and can be ran at 100% duty cycle due to the quality rib wound design. It can also be used with a solar array in diversion mode. Diversion dump loads are very important to have with a wind turbine to keep it from free spinning. The unit can be used alone to provide free heat as well by hooking your turbine or solar panels directly to it.
For an alternative dump load see our DC water heating elements to get FREE hot water from solar, hydroelectric, or wind power. The divert load comes completely assembled for easy installation. You need to divert the excess power being generated to a load so your wind turbine generators will NOT go into high speed freewheeling in heavy winds. Important note about wire gauge for this resistor bank when used with a relay: use 1 gauge cable for connections to the relay or a pair of 4 gauge cables.Undersized wiring will cause heat buildup and cause the relay to fail prematurely. Note: These resistors can get very hot and will put off FREE heat. They can be moved outdoors in a metal enclosure or under an awning or roof. Products may be slightly different than the ones pictured. If our supplier runs short of the products shown, we will substitute them for the same quality or better. Damage from marine use and/or saltwater environments. Corrosion due to saltwater air.
