Generally speaking if your turbine has larger than a 6 foot rotor diameter and or is rated for 1KW or more you may need the 4KW clipper. Please consult tech support
The MidNite Clipper is designed to control Wind or Hydro turbines and work with the Classic to charge your battery. The Clipper communicates with the Classics
to slow the turbine when the batteries are full, and also contains a stand alone self powered adjustable max VOC limiting circuit. The AC Clipper is designed to work with AC turbines and was designed for up to 1.5kw maximum turbines. The 1.5K AC Clipper comes standard with
2 ohms of resistance per phase. We can custom build other resistance values upon request and have designed an easy to change resistor insert for the Clipper allowing changes in the field.
The AC Clipper contains two 277 VAC 50 Amp 3 phase AC breakers (one for a stop switch) and a 1200 volt 200 Amp 3 phase bridge rectifier.
The Bergey XL1 uses the 1,500 watt 2 ohm's per phase Clipper
AVAILABLE IN THE FOLLOWING MODEL NUMBERS:
