Maximum input voltage & current on all terminals: 30V , 40A. Withstand voltage: 35V (anything above will damage controller).
Stand-by power consumption: 0.1W. AC Turbine : For 3 phase AC turbine. The 3 wires from AC turbine can be connected to the terminals in no specific order. Built in rectifier will convert AC to DC. Can also be connected here as the rectifier accepts DC input as well.
LED will turn Green when there is an active input source. DC Turbine : Recommend for Air-X since this terminal has the. LED will not turn on since the Air-X has its own (red) charging LED. LED will turn on when there is power coming in from the inputs. Manual Turbine lock to force dump load to turn on.
Pulse Width Modulated Dump Load. Stay-Online Feature to keep Air-X up and running in low battery condition. Night Time Reverse current protection to prevent current going into wind turbine and solar panels. Over current Protection (40A Fuse). Operating output current: 37.5A.
Total maximum output current: 40A. Maximum current on individual output: 30A. Maximum Output Power: 1000W (rated at 27V & 37.5A).
Output starts when inputs are above 12.5V. LED will turn Orange with respect to each output. Battery is an input and an output at the same time.
LED will turn Blue indicating battery is being charged. Overcharge protection Cut off voltage: 14.7V. Over-discharge protection Cut off voltage: 11.4V. Recommend using deep cycle batteries if possible. Normal lead acid batteries are acceptable as well.3 charging modes: Continuous charging, Pulsing, Trickiling. Mode 1 - Power Supply. When input voltages are lower than the battery's voltage, the battery will act as a supply to all outputs. Power to all outputs will be cut when the battery has drop down to 11.4V.
Mode 2 - Stay Online (for Air-X only). When battery voltage is below 11.4V and input voltages is under 9V, even though all outputs will be cut, the charge controller will still send electrical pulse to the DC input terminal every 5 - 10 seconds as indicated by the pulsing Red.This is necessary for Air-X's internal controller to stay on. Since the Air-X will not wake up on its own, without these pulses, even if wind starts blowing the Air-X will free spin and no power will be generated. If polarity of battery is incorrect. Requires a minimum of 1.2Ohm 600W resistive load to be connected to the dump load terminal. Dump load activates when AC Turbine is >= 27V. Unlike conventional dump loads that short circuit on activation and drop outputs to zero, the SolarWind Hybrid RX utilizes Pulse-width modulation (PDM) switching technology to only dump what is necessary and conserve the rest. Activating dump load will slow down the AC turbine and reduce voltage spikes.
Over voltage protection: All outputs will be cut when input voltage is over 30V. However dump load will stay on. LED will turn Red when the dump load has been activated. Manual Turbine Lock is used to force dump load to fully turn on (ie: short circuit).
Useful when it is necessary to isolate AC wind turbine from the system (ie: during installation or maintenance). Turbine lock is the red switch at the top-left corner of the Output Face (refer to Figure 1 on page 6).

What is Nylon 6.6? Nylon is a man made product.
On the man made side, you will see primarily three types of thermoplastic. These are polyester, polypropylene, and nylon.
Of the three types, nylon is by far the better choice. Nylon is extremely versatile in its applications. It is highly resistant to abrasion and has excellent resilience.
Within nylon, there are two groups: nylon 6 and nylon 6.6. Nylon 6.6 is the. It is the thermoplastic that is most often specified by professional architects and designers because it provides the flexural strength, low-temperature toughness, UV Resistance and is the most resilient. Nylon 6.6 performs well in many applications such as wind turbine blades, automotive parts, and other fields that get a lot of wear and tear. Nylon 6.6 has additional molecules that give extra strength and the resilience compared to nylon 6.
If you still have no idea what Nylon 6.6 is, do a search on google.
