3 Phase Brake Switch
with Short Circuit Brake in a Steel 3 Gang Box
for use with AC or DC output wind turbines
50 amp, 3-phase switch with short circuit brake works with 12 volt to 250 volt systems. Designed for 1500 watt and smaller turbines.
Simple yet perfect for small turbine installations, this 3-phase switch uses a specialized switch to provide both disconnect capability as well as braking by shorting out the 3 wires of the stator. Although designed specifically for 3-phase turbines it works equally well for single phase AC turbines as well as DC turbines. Assembled in the USA using Global Materials.
- Up: Turbine is connected to the battery or rectifier (switch is closed).
- Middle: Turbine is fully disconnected (free spinning).
- Down: Turbine wires are shorted together (brake is on).
This switch will handle 2500 watts continuously.
