The microprocessor is the heart of the controller. It is given the battery voltage and the user changeable trip points.
User changeable settings
High amp rating
Battery status LED
Push to test
Heavy-gauge, solid steel gang switch box enclosure (standard outlet box)
Long leads for easy termination
Can divert the source from the batteries to the load, or dump both the batteries along with the source
The Battery level indicator illuminates as follows:
The dump remains active for a minimum of 5 seconds, at which time it is checked by the microprocessor. If the battery voltage drops below the "Dump Cancel " level, the dump is disabled, otherwise, the dump is continued and rechecked every 5 seconds.
Load diversion: The basic operating philosophy of a diversion controller is quite simple. Monitor the battery voltage, and if it should rise to a predetermined level, connect a diversion load (or "Dummy Load"), of sufficient size, to the battery or energy source to prevent the battery voltage from increasing any further. This is a very simple, yet very effective way of preventing battery overcharging. All alternate energy systems should have some form of battery overcharge protection.
Continuous Duty Relay Features:
These MWS440 series continuous duty relays are sold in non-grounded insulated cases (lightning proof). They are made for Missouri Wind and Solar only. Use for building your own controller or to upgrade your existing controller. Great addition to a dump load for diverting or controlling wind and or additional solar up to 10,000 watts on many PWM or MPPT charge controllers. These are not like standard relays that can only run for a short duration before burning up but are true industrial duty models that are not bothered by heat, dirt or continuous ON time!
