There have been a number of questions recently about whether Morningstar solar charge controllers can be used to charge lithium ion batteries in off-grid solar applications. Morningstar’s TriStar MPPT, TriStar (PWM), ProStar MPPT, ProStar (Gen3), SunSaver MPPT, and SunSaver DUO solar charge controllers support Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) and other battery technologies such as: Lead Acid [...]
For the Primus Wind Power 1-AR40-10, what is the minimum wind speed required to charge the batteries?
The "Startup Wind Speed" is 7 mph. At this cut in wind speed it will be a trickle charge.
The SI-300 is not a wind or solar inverter like a pure grid-tie inverter might be. The SI-300 simply converts 12 VDC to 120 VAC. The charging source for the 12-volt battery bank could be wind, solar, hydro, generator, or various other sources. The same could be true of many other "battery-based" inverters.
The black blades in the Primus Air 40 wind turbine produce a maximum of 65 decibels.
Can I use the MidNite Solar MNBTS Remote Temperature Sensor for any inverter or charge controller or only for MidNite Solar brand products.
No, the function and resistance of the battery temperature sensor (RTS) are different from each manufacturer.
Yes, the FXR Series Inverter/Chargers are pure sinewave inverters (aka "true sinewave").
No. All Primus Wind Power AIR wind turbines do not require a charge controller.
No, all of the Primus Wind Power wind turbines are for off-grid applications.
Does the Schneider Electric 865-1030-1 Conext MPPT 60 150 Solar Controller (RNW86510301) have a dump load relay adjustable voltage?
No, the Conext MPPT 60 150 charge controller does not have dump load relay, however, it has an AUX relay programmable 0-13VDC@200mA that can be programmed to trigger and clear on battery voltage. This may be used to drive an external relay for activating a dump load.
