How to hookup Wind Catcher
One of the easiest ways to get started with using Wind Catcher is by plugging the portable wind turbine directly into the PV port of a portable power station. The main thing to consider is that the DC voltage of your Wind Catcher should be less than the maximum rating of your portable power station.
Hookup Parallel Connection
One of the cool ways to use Wind Catcher is by hooking it up in parallel with a solar panel such that you have the opportunity to capture clean energy night and day!. Just remember to use blocking diodes such that the current is not reversed through the solar panel or wind turbine! We can also supply these blocking diodes build into an MC4 to MC4 plug.
If you already have a battery system or just want more modularity compared to using a portable power station, then it’s possible to connect the system to a generic MPPT charge controller and it will take care of keeping your batteries charged. You can not use a PWM charge controller unless it includes a current limiting device.
