Setup Instructions for the Intella-Controller
(at the bottom is a link to a text only page for printing)
you for your purchase of the Intella-Controller. Your controller will
provide you with valuable information that will help you maintain your
battery bank system.
Hooking your controller to your system;
terminals can be connected in a couple of way. You can use them to turn on
and off different items such as small grid tie inverters or to directly run
loads up to 35.5 amps on 12 volt systems. It is not recommended that you
connect this to large loads like power inverters, however you can still use
the output terminals to run large loads by using a starter solenoids to
carry the heavy current up into the 100’s of amps, and allow the controller
to switch the solenoid on and off at selected voltage ranges to prevent the
inverters/load from running your battery bank down too low which could
damage your battery bank.
Brake Time: The user adjustable amount of time in seconds that the turbine is held down in brake mode.
Brake On: The user selectable maximum amount of amperage from the turbine before the brake is applied used to protect smaller battery banks or to protect the turbine and tower in high wind conditions. (Adjust this setting according to your turbines high output specifications, or battery bank max input. (NOTE: do not go down to zero and back around for higher amperage settings. You must go from smaller amperage setting UP in numbers or the controller will not recognize the setting. For the TLG-500-12 set it around 33 amps, for the TLG-500-24 set it around 18 amps.
User: Displays the actual load in amps placed on the (OUTPUT) terminals when they are activated by the controller. (Max 35.5A)
User On: The user adjustable voltage point that the (OUTPUT) terminals are switched on.
This setting is used to switch on certain items like small grid tie inverters etc.
User Off: The user adjustable voltage point that the (OUTPUT) terminals are switched off.
This setting is used to shut the output terminals off to prevent running your battery bank down. Set it at the lowest point that you want the connected item to run.
User Ah: The amount of Amp hours that have been consumed through the (OUTPUT) terminals.
Power: The instant readout of wattage being produced by the turbine to the hundredth of a watt.
If both wind and solar are being used, the reading will display total incoming power.
Charge Total: The total amount of Kwh that has been produced by all inputs.
Charge Ah: The amount of Amp hours produced into your battery bank.
Charge Off: The user adjustable voltage point that the controller stops charging and enters brake mode. Set this to best match your battery bank according to your battery supplier’s specs.
V / I : The instant readout of the battery bank voltage and Amperage input to your battery bank to the hundredth.
