To protect your alternative energy system from potential damage choose a divert load that equals or exceeds the maximum output of your complete system. These 300 watt resistors can be wired in parallel to dump 300, 600, 900, Watts, etc.. We recommend using 2 resistors, wired in parallel, for our DC-520 and DC-540 PMA's,


WARNING! These resistors need air flow and must be installed in a location that will provide adequate flow. If you decide to mount them in an enclosure the enclosure must be well ventilated. We advise that your enclosure has many holes or vents so that the air can move freely through it.

These resistors "use" energy by converting it to heat. When your charge controller is in divert mode the resistors will be very hot. The resistors must be mounted on a heatproof surface and protected from accidental contact from people and anything else. You can make a cage from wire mesh to prevent people or objects from coming in contact with them. Wire mesh is a good choice because it does not block air flow to the resistors. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that the resistors are used safely and properly.
