This universal wind turbine switch can be used as a disconnect as well as a brake for most 3 phase wind turbines. Here’s how it works:
Run: 3 phase turbine is connected to your rectifier.
Free: Turbine is disconnected and able to “free turn”. Free wheeling a wind turbine is generally only for temporary or testing purposes.
Brake: Wires are shorted together (Brake on).
The switch comes pre-jumpered and only requires stripped wires to connect.
This product uses Wago next generation connectors, a better alternative to wire nuts.
