The SCR Marine charge regulator has been especially designed for the Superwind 350 wind generator and guarantees optimum charging of the batteries. The secondary function of the SCR Marine is to electronically keep the wind generator under load. When the batteries have reached their maximum charging voltage, the SCR Marine´s PWM circuit automatically diverts the wind turbine´s surplus power to the dump resistors. Thus with batteries even fully charged, the wind turbine continues operating and provides useable power as soon as electric consumers are switched on. This state of charge is indicated by a LED.
The SCR Marine is suitable for lead acid batteries, gel batteries and AGM batteries (AGM = Absorbed Glass Mat) and has temperature compensated charging characteristics. For special applications, the maximum charging voltage can be adjusted to customer requirements.
The charge regulator SCR Marine is completely sealed and effectively protectet against the marine environment.
It has two separate outputs, which can be used to charge two battery sets separately (eg. starter battery and service battery on a yacht).
Important: An advantage of the CRM is that it only regulates the voltage of the wind turbine. It is not influenced by (and does not influence) other power sources connected to the battery like alternators, gensets etc.
