440 AMP CONTROLLER / 10,000 WATT

Works on all 12, 24, 36 or 48 volt sectional battery banks.
Can be used to control both large and even the smallest wind & solar systems. Effectively keeps batteries from over charging by diverting or cutting power.
Worlds Lowest Cost 440 AMP Wind & Solar Controller

MORE INFO, Including Sample Systems <<Click Here>>
Includes voltage specifications and setup

Do it the right way and use the load diverting "DUMP LOAD" philosophy!
Regulate your BATTERY, or your over production or power instead of your Wind Turbine or Solar Panels. Then you can utilize your "extra" power to heat water or air. See below.

Questions And Answers

Q. Is there any reason why I can't wire my Wind Turbine directly to my Water Heater Element?
A. The reason a Turbine can not be directly hooked up to a water heater element WHICH must BE run AT ONLY 24 to 30 volts MAX for a 24v element - If the turbine is in about 40 MPH winds a 24 volt Turbine will actually be putting out about 80 volts and BOOM goes your heater element. Therefore you MUST have a battery to buffer the wildly varying power & voltage output of a wind turbine.

Also, when disconnected, the voltage spikes and anything that cannot handle high voltage will be fried, including
charge controllers not designed to be connected to wind turbines like a Xantrex C-40 for example - which will disconnect the turbine from the battery when full if set up in "charge controller" mode, then the controller gets a shock of "over voltage" than has that distinct "failure" smell /smoke !

DC Water Heater Elements   1" Male Iron Pipe Threads
300 watt units are capable of heating 15 gallons of water from 75 F. to 120 F. in only 5 hours. (BATTERY CONNECT ONLY, read above)
Note: You should size your element 1.25 times more than expected load. Also remember our EAGLE Turbines don't turn out of the wind in high winds !!

Most electric hot water heaters have two element ports. One in the middle and one at the bottom of the tank. Use your WH series element to replace the bottom 240 VAC element so you always have hot water. If your battery is keeping your water hot then the thermostat on the other 240 VAC element will never turn on unless you run out of wind or solar power. A great diversion load for alternative energy systems!

Note: If you have a gas hot water heater you may wish to put an electric unit ahead of it. This way the gas heater is always being feed hot water so it does not turn on as often and for shorter periods of time when it does.


WARNING: If you run these elements dry they will burn out and the seals will blow!!!!!!
You MUST always have them submerged in water when they are powered up!

water thermostat
Water Overheat Thermostats:
Never allows your water to get overly hot!!!
Can handle 50 amps (12 to 110 volts OK)

1) Model #T115 - 115 F. - $39.95

2) Model #T175 - 175 F. - $39.95



Opens circuit on overheat effectively cutting power to the heater (Normally closed connects)

Simple in line wiring system!!! Connections are 1/4" spade terminals. The heat sensor (reverse side) must be firmly mounted on the side of a non-insulated tank. Use 10 gauge wire minimum. for loop circuit Uses a simple and typical "Loop" circuit to interrupt power to wiring harness on overheat. Heat ratings are averages (+ or - 3%)
solenoid

Continuous Duty Solenoid - 400 Amp Rated !!

We sell only serious solenoids for electricians serious about extreme dependability!
The contacts will not weld together on this unit, it is made for high amps and repeated switching.

#CDS12 - 12 to 15 Volt Solenoid - Only $59.95

#CDS24 - 24 to 30 Volt Solenoid - Only $79.95

Regulates 12 or 24 volt battery banks that are built from multiples of 6 or 12 volt sections.

The "CDS" series continuous duty solenoids are sold in non-grounded insulated cases (lightning proof). Can be operated at 100% duty cycle conducting loads up to 400 amps. These are not standard type automotive solenoids that can only run for short durations before burning up but rather true industrial duty models that are not bothered by heat, dirt or continuous ON time. Electrical contacts are made of pure Silver alloy and can handle millions of cycles at very high amp loads! - VERY ULTRA HIGH QUALITY UNITS!!!!!!!! (Primary coil draws only 25 ma. Very energy efficient!!!)

Sorry, No 48 Volt Models Available But Many People Use Two CDS24's wired In Series To Achieve An effective 48 Volt Relay.

Air Heating Diversion Loads

These resistive loads enclosed in vented aluminum boxes can be used in 12v, 24v and 48 volt diversion regulation systems. The aluminum box may get very hot in operation. It should be mounted at least 12” from any flammable material. The HL-100 is shipped as a 4-ohm resistor and can be reconfigured as a 1, 0.5 or 0.25 ohm resistor by easily changing connections in the terminal block. The HL-75 is shipped as a 3-ohm resistor and can be reconfigured as a 0.75-ohm resistor by changing connections in the terminal block. See chart below for diverted amps at various voltages.
Warranty: 2 years.
(Conduit knockout on top and vents on top also. Bottom is closed in.)
